Snow Shoe Rambling in Vorarlberg

Hiking in Winter Wonderland at Your Own Pace across deep powder

While winter hikers usually stick to cleared or groomed trails, snow shoe hikers move in open terrain and ramble on special boots across deep powder. In the interest of safety, it is advisable to always set out in the company of a guide who is familiar with the local terrain.

Being out and about in the snow and enjoying the peace and quiet of a snow-bedecked landscape holds a special attraction. Don a pair of snow shoes and get off the beaten path.

Just marvel at winter’s beauty, how gentle and soft the landscape has turned. This haven of peace and serenity can best be discovered when walking. Now is the time to lace your sturdy walking boots, or ramble cross-country on snowshoes. Courses and guided tours are offered at many places.
