Author’s recommendation

At the Herzebenalm we take a turn left and end up at the ancient "Alten Kasern", an incredible little gathering of alpine lodges. It’s worth the trip.

Hotel Stubaierhof

Turn-by-turn directions

After a comfortable ascent with the „Elfer“ gondola across the Hotel Stubaierhof, we shortly walk over to the start of the tobogganing run Pinnistal. We now zoom down the natural tobogganing run to the cozy Issenangeralm. There we stash the toboggans and change over to snowshoes. We hike through untouched wintery landscapes to the Pinnisalm. A stop at Christian’s is always worthwhile.

We then hike back to Issenangeralm where we tie the snowshoes onto our backpacks and sleigh down to the valley.

A gentle winter trail leads back to the hotel.
