Snowshoe hike at the head of the Hinterglemm valley


The starting point for the snowshoe hike is the free parking lot in Lengau. Here you walk 200m to the right of the stream. The path then branches off to the right and you follow the signs for "Talschluss Höhenweg". At the beginning, the trail climbs quite comfortably up a forest road until it turns into a narrower hiking trail. (We hiked up to this point without snowshoes as the forest road was well cleared).

From here, the trail leads through snow-covered forests and across alpine meadows. Shortly before the Forsthofalm, the trail descends slightly. You walk past the Forsthofalm (not open in winter!) and then towards the Lindlingalm. You could continue at the crossroads towards Ossmanalm, but we opted for the shorter option.

You can stop for a bite to eat at the Lindlingalm and then toboggan back to the parking lot.

Walking time from Lengau to Lindlingalm: approx. 1 1/2 hours

TIP: Anyone who believes that avalanche awareness is only important for ski touring is mistaken. As soon as you are in open winter terrain, the same rules apply as for ski tourers. That means:

  • Read the avalanche report!
  • Take the weather forecast into account
  • Take a map and possibly a compass and altimeter with you
