    This high-altitude circular hiking trail is located at 2,350 metres on the incomparable Rüfikopf.

    On miracles and extraordinary people –

    There’s no need to go searching for miracles – you’re surrounded by them!

    Snow is simply miraculous: billions of snow crystals merge to form flakes that float down gently like leaves and cover every thing in a bright white blanket.

    Snow is very powerful in the Arlberg region: it shapes the people here, sets the pace and creates living conditions. Snow challenges people, it makes them fight. Snow is also an ally: it casts a spell over the landscape, makes it seem weightless and graces it with beauty.

    The SnowflakesPanoramaTrail will bring you closer to this fascinating element we call snow. And it will introduce you to people from the Arlberg who transform adverse conditions into highly emotional winter experiences.

    And that’s no miracle, but a success story that has been seen time and again here on the Arlberg …
