Walking along snowy meadows, through romantic larch forests in winter silence - all you can hear is the crunching of your feet. Follow the well-marked and traced path and discover the beauty of the rear Schnalstal Valley. Depending on the snow situation, snowshoes are recommended.

Turn-by-turn directions

The best entrance  for the path to Hotel Gerstras and the viewpoint “belvedere” is at the bottom station of the Lazaun cable car in Maso Corto/Kurzras. Continue towards the sparse forest, crossing through the sun-kissed meadows below the Wieshof farm. Just about at the level of the farmstead Marchegghof opposite, a signpost indicates the viewing point “belvedere”, where there is a wonderful view down into the valley. Back on the trail again, the path leads directly past the Hotel Gerstras (possibility to stop). The way back ist he same route.

Duration of the round trip approx. two hours.
