Winter hike to the Oberholz Mountain Hut

From Obereggen a levelled winter hiking path proceeds up to the new mountain hut just beneath the Latemar: the Oberholz Mountain hut at almost 2,100 m a.s.l

The winter hiking path from the valley station of the Latemar - Obereggen Ski Center near Nova Ponente (Deutschnofen) in the Val d'Ega valley proceeds parallel to the sledge run, one of the toboggan runs of the Val d'Ega, until the Epircher-Laner Mountain Hut. Some years ago, this path was extended until the mountain restaurant Oberholz. Really great, because like this also winter hikers can enjoy the fantastic view and the delicious menus at the Oberholz Mountain Hut now. Starting point is the upper parking space in Obereggen.

We follow path no. 9 until the Hotel Cristal where we turn left and follow the road uphill until we cross the sledge run. Parallel to the sledge run the hiking path proceeds up to the Epircher-Laner Mountain Hut. Shortly before we reach the mountain hut, the signpost "Oberholz" leads us up the slope to the left. After a few bends the levelled path turns into a forest road which proceeds through a beautiful conifer forest straight to the mountain station of the Oberholz Chairlift, where the new Oberholz Mountain Hut is located at 2,095 m a.s.l.

The mountain hut is an architectural highlight which modernly interprets natural and traditional forms of the alpine world. Due to the huge panorama windows one feels part of the South Tyrolean alpine world. Oberholz is also accessible by chairlift.
