Note for snowshoe hikers in Gosau
Closure in February 2024
The descent from the Zwieselalm via the so-called "Herrenweg" in Gosau is not possible from Monday, 05.02.2024 to probably 29.02.2024 due to logging work. Please keep this in mind when planning your free time! As an alternative, we recommend a return trip to the valley with the panorama jet.
Snowshoeing from the Hornspitz lift
Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the World Heritage region of Hallstatt / Dachstein Salzkammergut whilst snowshoeing in Gosau. Pure nature experiences off the beaten track: Enjoy the peace and grandeur of the winter wonderland to the full and take in the idyllic and romantic atmosphere of the Dachstein West ski region.
Complete silence, only the soft crunching of snow accompanies snowshoers from the Hornspitzlift middle station (1200m) to the top station (1433m). Even though the snow is deep, you barely sink in and walk as smoothly and safely as on a well groomed trail - only better. The nearly two-hour tour takes you past the quaint Zeishofalm and rewards winter hikers in the Dachstein West ski region at the end with a breathtaking panoramic view of the imposing Dachstein and the surrounding mountains. Good warm and breathable winter hiking clothes makes snowshoeing in Gosau a pleasure.
