Snowshoe hike to the Eggergrub alpine pasture at Stulles

At almost 2.000 m of altitude above Stulles in the Val Passiria Valley there is located the Eggergrub Alm, which in winter is open during the weekends. A nice destination for a snowshoe hike of intermediate difficulty.

Our starting point is the village centre of Stulles. From there we follow the sign to “Morx Puite” and “Eggergrub Alm”. We slightly ascend and cross meadows and forests. The path is cleared from the snow until we reach the parking “Hochegg/Oberstuls”. Those who want to shorten the walk can come here by car and reduce the walking time by half.

Now we put on our snowshoes, as the path is covered by a thick layer of snow. The sun is shining and overcoming a difference in altitude of 660 m gets us into a sweat. After a nice lunch break on the alpine pasture we enjoy the view on the snow-covered landscape. Afterwards we return on the same path to Stulles.
