You can start the comfortable tour to the Stallwiesalm directly at the parking lot below the barrier.

From there, a broad, groomed forest road leads you to the Stallwiesalm.

In case of very good snow conditions, sometimes it is possible to take the signposted shortcuts through the forest.

From the startpoint at the parking barrier you need about 2 hours to the hut.

The Stallwiesalm is open all winter and there are no rest days. On pre-order culinary highlights such as cheese spaetzle or ribs are offered in the evening.

The downhill is not difficult, because it is the same route as to go up.

Author’s recommendation

The hut evenings take place DI MI and DO.

For larger groups it is advisable to make a reservation. Hut evenings are often organized on other days of the week too.

Safety information

If you go in the evening to Stallwiesalm you should bring a head torch with you. (the tour is not lightened)
You can also borrow them in the hut.

Avalanche Hazard Scale

1 (LOW)

Triggering is generally possible but only from high additional load in isolated areas of extremely steep terrain. Only small-sized sluffs and natural avalanches are expected. Snow layers are generally stable.


Avalanches may be triggered in case of truly heavy loads, especially on a few explicitly indicated, steep slopes. Large spontaneous avalanches are not expected. In general, the snowpack is well bonded except on some very steep slopes. Choose your route carefully, avoid the indicated slopes and exposed sections.


Triggering is very probable even from low additional loads, particularly on the indicated steep slopes. On some steeper slopes, medium or even fairly large spontaneous avalanches may occur. On most steepslopes the snow layer is only moderately or weakly stable. Expertavalanche knowledge is required. You must avoid the indicated steepslopes and highly exposed sections.

4 (HIGH)

Avalanches are likely to be triggered on many of the indicated steepslopes even if only light loads are applied. In some places, numerous medium-sized and also large-sized natural avalanches are expected.The snowpack is poorly bonded on most steep slopes. Choose your route according to these criteria, select only moderately steep terrain by avoiding the avalanche runout zones. Very expert avalanche knowledge is required.


Numerous huge or very large-sized natural avalanches are expected also in moderately steep terrain. Safe skiing is not possible anymore, not even in the marked ski area. The snowpack is poorly bonded and largely unstable. Don‘t go ski mountaineering at all!

Tips and suggestions

Ski Mountaineering Rules
  • If you enjoy activities amid nature always respect the local guidelines when you set out on a ski tour (for example: wildlife preserves, hunting enclosures, reforestation areas, information boards, etc.).
  • Don‘t enter protected wildlife zones or feeding areas amid naturelandscapes, and avoid noise.
  • Cross forest areas in winter only on sign posted trails or marked routes as wild animals can panic if they hear loud voices or noise.
  • Learn more about the habitat of wild animals in the mountains, avoid getting too close to them. Watch them only from a safe distance. Please put your dog on a lead, it is absolutely irresponsible to take dogs into the forest without leashing them because wild animals suffer from food deficiency and weakness in winter.
  • Excellent planning and time management: start your tour early enough and return before darkness. In spring you should be back on the hut or in the valley at 12 noon (avalanche hazard!) at the latest.
  • Never cross forestation zones and areas with young plants and trees.


Ötztal Tourismus doesn‘t take any responsibility for the suggested tours. It is strongly recommended to enlist a certified local mountainguide. Glacier crossings are allowed only in a group by using a rope.

Before you set out on a tour you should inform someone down in the valley about the tour‘s destination and when you plan to be back. Anavalanche transceiver is an absolute must for Alpine ski mountaineering tours.

Turn-by-turn directions

Directly at the parking lot under the barrier, you can (if there is enough snow) put on your skis and start the tour.

The first two curves are a bit steep, but then it becomes flatter and more pleasant.

The path leads you along a wide, prepared forest road to the Stallwiesalm.

If the snow conditions are good enough, the steep, narrow shortcuts can sometimes be taken.

(These are not serviced - be careful, it can be very icy!)

The descent is the same way as the ascent.

For the descent, you can take off your skis directly at the hut and then set off straight away.

After a few meters, there is another short ascent, but then it continues downhill.

The proper preparation and maintenance of the road is in responsibility of the hut keeper.
