Winter hiking path and sledge run Zallinger

There are not many places like the Rif. Zallinger at the foot of Mount Sasso Piatto which can pride themselves on such an idyllic and beautiful position: A hiking path and sledge run leads from the mountain hut into the valley.

The starting point of our winter hike is the hamlet of Saltria on the Alpe di Siusi. The asphalt road passes the Hotel Floralpina after 1 kilometre and leads to the Tirler Mountain Hut and thus to the start of the sledge run. We follow the path no. 9 (later on no. 8 and 7) through the forest towards the Zallinger Mountain Hut. The trail runs parallel to the ski slope, which leads down from the Williamshütte mountain hut.

After a 90-minute walk we reach the Zallinger ensemble on a highland, made up of a renewed mountain hut and the idyllic Chapel of the Immaculate Conception. The view opens up on the nearby Sassolungo Group and the peaks of the Catinaccio and Sciliar massifs. After a stop we enjoy the sledge ride into the valley.
