What you'll do

First of all: imagine an extraordinary sunset in the snowy mountains!! We will go for an easy snowshoeing tour to the Spielbergalm in the skiing region of Gaissau-Hintersee. At the beginning I will show you the very easy technique to walk with the snowshoes and we will try it in different snowy situations along the way. Depending on the snow conditions we can slide, run and tumble in the snow. We will first hike uphill - offside the skiing slopes - for about 1,5 hours to a beautiful mountain hut where a hot chocolate will be your reward - and believe me, it will taste fabulous :-) After a little while and when you are ready we will hike down to our starting point and the speciality: you will turn on your headlights to navigate through the night. It is just amazing how the snow sparkles in the night enlightend by your lamp and the moon. By the way: my snowshoeing tours are perfect gifts for Christmas and birthdays!

Where you'll be

the hike is on the backside of the skiing area of Gaissau-Hintersee so there are no lifts and gondolas. Only at the last 100 meter we enter the skiing area and will visit the amazing Spielbergalm hut that lays embedded in the beautiful landscape. The hut is very cosy and the hosts are friendly! The hot chocolate tastes fabulous and gives you enough power for the downhill hike afterwards!
