Snowshoe hiking

New traces in Hochoetz's snow. Snow shoe hiking!

Ochsengarten and the scenic Hochoetz region makes a truly unique paradise for passionate snowshoe hikers. Gentle ascents, steep slopes, endless trails. Breathtaking Alpine scenery and uninterrupted panoramic views. Enjoy a cup of spicy tea or hot chocolate in one of the quaint mountain huts. You will feel tired and happy at the same time. A snowshoe hike amid unspoilt nature creates memories that will stay with you forever.

Snowshoe hiking is easy to learn and you can choose from a great variety of modern equipment including the latest materials and functionalities. Of course you can also rent all the necessary equipment - such as snowshoes or poles - in the Hochoetz Ski Region where certified snowshoe hiking guides are at your disposal as well.
