Winter hike on the Bullaccia

This wintry hike and sledge ride takes us to the Arnika Mountain Hut on Mt. Bullaccia: From here you can enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramas of the entire Alpe di Siusi

By cable car we reach the starting point of our hike Compaccio (Compatsch, 1,850 m a.s.l.) on the Alpe di Siusi from Siusi allo Sciliar (Seis am Schlern). From here we follow the signpost PU to Mt. Bullaccia. Some of us choose the more comfortable alternative and walk down from Compaccio to the valley station of the Bullaccia lift, by which they reach the Bullaccia panoramic mountain.

At the Bullaccia Mountain Hut (Puflatsch Hütte, 1,950 m a.s.l.) we meet again. From here it takes about 20 minutes to the Arnika Mountain Hut (Arnika Hütte), the path runs pleasantly along the Bullaccia plateau. The panoramic view is overwhelming: From here you can enjoy a view on many Dolomite peaks, e.g. the Sciliar Massif, Mt. Sassolungo, Mt. Sasso Piatto and the Sella Group.

We enjoy our lunch at the Arnika Mountain Hut where we meet only hikers, as the ski area does not reach here. For our way back we take the same route, sometimes on foot, sometimes on the sledge. It is one of the toboggan runs in the Alpe di Siusi area. After the Tschötsch Mountain Hut (Tschötsch Alm), the sledge run becomes faster. At the mountain station of the Euro lift we get off the sledge and walk the last 10 minutes back to Compaccio.
