Snowshoe hike to the Lafez Mountain Hut

A sunny winter day in the Val Senales valley, amidst untouched nature - a snowshoe hike to the Lafez Mountain Hut.

The Val Senales valley is famous for its glacier skiing area but also for plenty of other activities in winter. Like for example several routes for winter hikes and snow shoe tours. An easy snow shoe hike leads us to the Lafez Mountain Hut (Lafetz Alm), starting in the village of Madonna di Senales (Unser Frau in Schnals), at the pilgrimage church.

The path no. 19 starts quite narrow, it proceeds uphill and crosses soon a wide forest road. Here we suggest to follow the wide path which leads us straight to the Lafez Mountain Hut.

The last section of the path is a bit narrower and early shadowy, at the finish the landscape opens again and we can feel the sun. Under the eaves of the hut we enjoy our brought along provisions before we start our way back to Madonna di Senales in the valley along the same route.
