Beyond the ski runs, the tracks from the skis are solitary as they run through hitherto undisturbed snow. Upwards and then upwards some more – because anyone who goes ski touring has to first earn the descent with sweat and stamina. It is necessary to follow the ideal line, turning only for obstacles that stand in the way of the mountain itself. The reward is the unobstructed panorama. The Antholz Valley, with its small villages and even smaller localities, lies sunk deeply into the mountains, making it possible for ski tourers to ascend in every direction under the sun. Onward and upward, to a summit meeting with the clouds.
The mighty mountains in the Antholz Valley and the glacier area of the Rieserferner-Ahrn Nature Park are a dream region for ski touring fans. They have the mountains and the fabulously beautiful descents practically all to themselves here. From the easy ski tour up to the Staller Saddle (2,050 m/6,726 ft.) to the demanding tours up to the Hinterbergkofel peak (2,726 m/8,944 ft.) or to the Rote Wand peak (2,818 m/9,245 ft.) – countless peaks are waiting with their challenges to be conquered even in the wintertime.Winter Map
The Antholz valley and its villages are an excellent place to go snowshoeing. Snow-covered forests and Alpine pastures form the perfect setting for all those who love outdoor sports. And winter sports away from the ski slopes are getting more and more popular. Specifically: for nature lovers, hiking with snowshoes is unique. The quiet of the woods, the freshness of the winter air, and the closeness of the shy wild animals turn a snowshoe excursion into an unforgettable experience.
Snowshoes can be rented locally. The weather and avalanche conditions have to be checked very precisely before every tour. The tours which are listed are to be understood merely as suggestions, for which any liability is hereby refused.
My name is Martin Baumgartner, and I was born in 1987; I’m also known as Jochele Martin, because I grew up on Jochelehof farm. I trained as a motor mechanic, and I now manage Jochelehof farm together with my family. I love walking in the mountains, both in summer and winter. In 2018, I passed the “certified alpine skier guide” exam, and I will be happy to accompany you up into the mountains. You can choose one of the many classic routes or opt for one of the lesser-known trails.
