Kogel Route - Blue

Start
Glacier Restaurant (2837m)
Finish
Top station Brunnenkogel (t-bar lift) (3244m)
Access:
From the Glacier Restaurant at the top station of Pitztal's Gletscherexpress via a short downhill stretch (about 50 m) to the tour's starting point at the base station of Brunnenkogel T-bar lift.
 
Characteristics and Description:
Blue Piste – Easy ski tour along the ski run
The ascent route follows exactly the ski piste number 20 on a moderately climbing route, starting at the T-bar lift's base station and leading along the right edge of the ski run (seen from the valley). After about 500 m the ascent route leaves the ski run, joining a separate ascent track towards a short steep slope between the ski piste and the jagged mountain saddle. After this strenuous climb you reach a level area where the route crosses the ski run towards its left side (seen from the valley). Here you continue on the groomed ascent track between the ski lift and the T-bar lift until you get to the lift's top station.
 

Ferner Route - Red

Start
Glacier Restaurant (2684m)
Finish
Top station Mittelbergbahn (Gondola) (3278m)
Access:
From the Glacier Restaurant at the top station of Pitztal's Gletscherexpress via a short downhill stretch on ski piste number 25 to Gletschersee base station of Mittelbergbahn. The ascent route starts right at the base station next to the signpost.
 
Characteristics and Description:
Red Piste – Intermediate ski tour along the ski run
From the starting point at the Gletschersee chair lift base station you keep to the left edge of the ski run (seen from the valley) on ski piste number 36. Right at the start, close to the base station, there is a very tricky narrow section covering about 50 meters. Watch out for oncoming sportspeople. After another 500-meter stretch the ascent route travels along the ski piste number 37. A moderately climbing section in the lower third is followed by a separate ascent track, leaving behind the ski run. Shortly before you reach the top station of Mittelbergbahn, in the surroundings of Mittelbergjoch saddle, you reach the ski piste number 36 again. A last but pleasant ascent on the left edge of the ski run (seen from the valley) takes you to the top station of Mittelbergbahn. A very lovely route just perfect for slightly advanced ski touring fans.
 

Klausboden – Naturparkhaus [Nature Park Centre] at Gachenblick

Start
Car park at the Klausboden Piller (1253m)
Finish
Car park at the Klausboden Piller (1587m)
At the start, follow a forest path uphill for approximately 30 mins. At the turnoff towards the catered mountain hut Kielebergalm the path forks off to the right on a steep path. After walking a few metres in altitude, you will reach another forest path, which will take you straight to the Nature Park Centre [Naturparkhaus] at 1,560 m. A public bus will take you back to the bus stop Taschach. From there, it is only a 300 m walk along the road to return to the car park at the Klausboden.

Hike to Aifneralm mountain hut

Start
Car park near the hamlet Puschlin (1518m)
Finish
Car park near the hamlet Puschlin (1518m)
Swiss Trac Tour: Start: Please do not take the trail starting straight at the Naturparkhaus, as this features a short section that is not accessible by Swiss-Trac.
Start this route at the car park near the hamlet of Puschlin. Initially follow a well-prepared forest path. You will cover some altitude on this initial steep uphill section. Please note that you should never leave the main path. It leads past beautiful alpine meadows and after approx. 2/3 of the way, the surface of the path will become a little rougher and harder to navigate. After ca. 1.5 h you will reach the catered mountain hut “Aifner Alm”. The hut itself is accessible via a ramp, however, after rainfall the path leading up to it may be washed out in places. The toilet can be accessed by mounting one step. The corridor is very narrow due to a box. The toilet can be accessed by wheelchair but there is not sufficient space for turning circles.
 

Arzler Almweg 611

Start
St. Leonhard/Scheibe (1396m)
Finish
Arzler Alm (1890m)
Route description:
Start in Scheibe at “Gasthof zur Einkehr” restaurant. The 3.7 km long uphill hike to the catered mountain hut Arzler Alm leaves hardly any opportunity for a breather. The route has an average of 13% incline and despite a dense forest protecting it from direct sunlight, hikers will certainly work up a sweat! 
The condition of the mostly graveled roads is very good but caution should be exercised on your way down, especially in the bends. Arzler Alm affords fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. 

IVV Wald panoramic route

Start
Tourist information office Arzl (855m)
Finish
Tourist information office Arzl (854m)

Passing the clinic, continue around the Osterstein to the sports grounds of Arzl. From there, walk on in the direction of the village centre and just before the ‘Magnus Chapel‘ follow a steep 
path to the ‘Benni-Raich bridge‘. Cross the bridge, then turn left and follow the farm track to Wald village centre and continue to Wald sports grounds. From there continue to walk to Schwaighof and then on a farm track in the direction of Arzl-Ried. Another farm track running in parallel to the country road a little further uphill will tak e you 
back to the fire station in Wald. To return to the starting point, cross the ‘Benni-Raich bridge‘ and walk on the country road.

Start
top station Rifflseebahn (2288m)

valley station Rifflseebahn/Mandarfen (1677m)
Starting point: top station of Rifflsee gondola. From there, turn left to walk around Lake Rifflsee, then cross a river and at the next junction follow the signposts to “Fuldaer Höhenweg” [high-level trail]. Follow the continuously steep path on the left, sometimes up and sometimes down, across several streams until you reach the only critical point of the hike – the Vordere Köpfl. There are rocky and steep sections to master here, however, the path is safely secured with steel ropes and can be accomplished as long as you are surefooted. From then on it is a steady downhill climb to the cirque [Kar] and then a little further uphill to the catered mountain hut Taschachhaus. Catch a fantastic glimpse of the Taschach glacier world from a viewing point on the mountain’s crest just above the mountain hut.The descent takes you down to the goods cable lift and from then on along the agricultural road to Taschach Alm and further on to the valley station of Rifflseebahn in Mandarfen. For comfort, you can also complete the last 6 km from the goods cable lift by mountain bike. For more information please see www.pitztal.com.
