Snowshoe tour to Rossfeld
moderate Snowshoe hikes · Schladming
The initial part of the tour ist along an groomed winter walking trail. From Hüttecksattel mountain saddle you then walk through forest and over snow-covered alpine meadows up to Rossfeld. To the top of Hochwurzen you take Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable-car to the starting point at Hochwurzenhütte chalet, which is one of two refreshment stops besides Hochwurzenalm chalet. The winter scenery on Hochwurzen and the summit of Rossfeld is breathtaking!
From Hochwurzen summit, make our way to the Hochwurzenalm, which lies just a little below. Follow the trail right of Hochwurzenalm and via the "Kleine Wurzen" you walk down to the mountain saddle "Hüttecksattel". From here you start your way up to Rossfeld. The view to the surrounding mountain scenery is breathtaking!
Return route via the same path.

Then take the cable-car to the summit of Hochwurzen.
Before each and every ski tour or snow shoe walk you should check the most recent avalanche warnings which can be found at www.lawine-steiermark.at.
In winter time it is therefore important to also be careful on supposedly easy walks. Sections that are in the shadows can easily get icy, and slopes on the side of the trail may have avalanche hazard. Mountain sport is always carried out under personal responsibility - in winter even more than in summer. Tourist offices or avalanche warning services do not take any responsibility in respect to information provided.
