This medium-difficulty winter hike offers everything that a varied winter hike should include. A short, crisp ascent brings us up to operating temperature, followed by an enjoyable walk through snow-covered woodland towards the Prodalp tour destination. Views of the surrounding mountain panorama and the nearby ski slopes open up again and again.
