Winter Hike and Sledge Run Molignon

The magic of winter on the Alpe di Siusi can be enjoyed along a winter hike with add-on sledge ride from the Rif. Molignon mountain hut to the Rif. Tirler Alm.

In Saltria we follow the road towards the Tirler Restaurant which proceeds past the Hotel Floralpina, parallel to a ski slope. The path no. 9 (later no. 8 and 8A) proceeds from there through the forest up to the Rif. Molignon hut. A quiet valley stretches through the gorgeous winter landscape with view from the Odle Peaks to the Sassolungo and Sasso Piatto, from the Molignon to the Denti di Terrarossa in the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park.

After about 90 minutes walking time we reach the beautiful Rif. Molignon mountain hut (closed on Tuesday!). Here we enjoy the sun and typical delicacies. After our break, we take the sledge to come down into the valley again, the sledge run which is equal to our way there reaches until the Rif. Tirler. Sledges can be rented at the Rif. Molignon.
