Winter Hiking on the Plose
With or without snowshoes – experience a very special and fairy tale winter landscape.
Winter hiking has its own charm. To enjoy it fully enjoy we recommend good shoes and poles. Even if our winter hiking trails are regularly groomed, hiking on snow is different than in summer, because of the grip.
Winter hiking trails

Right at the arrival of the gondola lift, to be exact from the sun terrace of the Restaurant La Finestra, you can start a walk to the Rossalm Hut. Follow the Shared Trail signs 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.
