Winter walk on the Alpe di Siusi

We follow the Hans and Paula Steger Trail across the magic snow landscape of the Alpe di Siusi.

The Alpe di Siusi is a true paradise for winter walks. Its gentle, sunny landscape offers plenty of hiking trails, perfect for comfortable winter walks or more challenging winter hiking tours. The most popular are the hiking tour to the Molignon mountain hut (2,054 m asl) and the following walk along the Hans and Paula Steger Trail from Compaccio (1,850 m asl) to Saltria. It exhibits only a moderate altitude difference.

Gaining height on the Alpe di Siusi Cable Car we can see very clearly how the snow layer gets thicker and thicker and the shadow cone of Mt Sciliar finally gives way to the sunny landscape of the Alpe di Siusi. Arrived at the mountain station at Compaccio, we walk to the church, the starting point of our hiking tour. Since most of the ski slopes cross our trail route on bridges we only have to be aware of some horse sleighs. Our trail crosses the asphalted road Compaccio-Saltria before the Hotel Steger-Dellai and leads through a forest up to a small hill with a spectacular view of the Sassolungo Group.

At the point where the Hans and Paula Steger Trail branches off towards south, we follow the signpost “Sentiero per Saltria” (Foot path to Saltria). At this last section of our hiking tour we enjoy beautiful views of Mt Piz and the Puez-Odle Group.
