Snowshoe walking and back-country skiing in the Antholz Valley


Anyone who has hiked through the snow-covered Antholz Valley on skis or in snowshoes before knows that there could hardly be a more beautiful way of exploring the glittering white winter wonderland of the Puster Valley. Not for nothing are back-country skiing and snowshoe walks extremely popular in the Antholz Valley.

Snowshoes, even if not in the form that we know them today, have been used as a way of getting about since time immemorial. However walking with these large aids has only become a popular sport in recent years. This is the case in the South Tyrolean Antholz Valley too. Today tours take active holidaymakers to the Staller Sattel (walking time 1.5 hours), the Kumpfler Alp or the Berger Alp at 1,623 metres above sea level, to mention just a few snowshoe walk destinations in Antholz
Striding through glittering landscapes in harmony with Mother Nature and afterwards leaving your own unmistakeable tracks in the fresh powder snow with your skis is something that back-country skiers can look forward to in the Antholz Valley. With excellent equipment you can conquer the Staller Sattel, hike through the Weissbach Valley to the Hinterbergkofel (2,726 m) or climb up and ski down the Rote Wand.
