We've talked about it a few times. Said and done.
With the car we drive up the toll road to the Postalm. On the largest high plateau in Austria, at approx. 1,200 m above sea level, perfect conditions await us. Deep blue sky and freshly sugared winter landscape, simply wonderful.
As a beginner we don't have any equipment yet. No problem - they can be rented directly on the Postalm as well as in the valley.
You don't need much, snowshoes and sticks, then you're ready to go.
We start at the upper parking lot (P3) and initially wear our snowshoes along the cleared winter hiking trail. After a few meters, we “strap” our snowshoes onto our feet. The first steps are very unusual. Since some walkers are already looking at us skeptically, we start off in the area.
We take and the Windkogel. It is wonderfully easy to take your first steps across country in an untouched winter landscape. The snow cover is covered with “firn” and glitters in the morning sun.
We quickly notice that trudging in the snow is more strenuous than it looks. But we trudge on towards the summit. After about 1 hour we reach it and are rewarded with a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains. We can also see Lake Wolfgang, which is partly still covered with a thin layer of ice, from up here.
It's a bit faster down, if not as fast as with the tourers who waggle past us.
Once at the bottom we have earned a snack. The many managed huts on the Postalm invite everyone to rest and soak up the sun. Our reserves of strength can be quickly recharged with a giant bread dumpling.
We are already planning the next snowshoe hike and another summit will be tackled.
A lot of fun for the whole family, the 1 km long natural toboggan run past the Stobler Hütte and the barn. (from P3 to P1) Every Saturday floodlit toboggan evening. Toboggans, rubber tires (tubes) and Zipfelbob are of course available for hire, plus a comfortable and safe ascent aid with the 100 m long covered "magic carpet".
Tuberiding and Zipfelbob for our little guests. A specially prepared bobsleigh run right next to the ascent aid - magic carpet.
Decelerate from everyday life: recharge your batteries and sunbathe on the spacious walking paths from hut to hut on the Postalm, one of the most beautiful high plateaus in Austria. A very special kind of hut roos.
Aside from comfortable clothing, good shoes and maybe sunglasses, all you need is a good mood and fun exercise in the fresh air. All winter hiking trails are of course in top condition.
