Winter Hiking on the Plose
Thanks to the Special Location of the Plose – it is bound southwards, towards the Dolomites – you can experience a very special and fairy tale winter landscape.
More and more people are discovering the exercise in the fresh air even in winter. In order to give this joy of movement in one of the most beautiful landscapes we recommend a winter walk on the Plose.
The cable car can carry you up to a height of 2000m. As a guest, thanks to the Brixencard, you will have the opportunity to reach the mountain station Kreuztal free once a day. Here you can watch the hustle and bustle of skiers, freestylers and toboggan riders while enjoying your cappuccino on the terrace before you start to your winter hike. If you want to be accompanied by a guide, please contact the Ski School Plose.
Winter hiking trail to the Rossalm
2.5 km – 45-60 minutes – one way
Right at the arrival of the gondola lift, to be exact from the sun terrace of the Bergrestaurant Kreuztal, you can start a walk to the Rossalm. You take the stairs down, pass the building and follow the street until you get to the Guesthouse Geisler. Right after it you need to cross the slope and then decide whether to take the upper or the lower path (this one is al little bit steeper on the last part) . The paths are groomed regularly and lead, slightly uphill, along 2.5 km to one of the most popular huts in the whole Plose area, the Rossalm. Who wants can pull the toboggan and, when returning, enjoy the run back to the gondola lift.
