Winter hike to the Eores Mountain Pastures

The pleasant tour on the southern slopes of the Plose takes you to the huts between Eores and the Passo delle Erbe.

From Bressanone to Sant'Andrea (St. Andrä) and further on to Eores (Afers), this is how we come to reach the Bressanone Mountain Hut (Brixner Hütte), the starting point of our snow walk. It is located at about 1,900 m a.s.l., at the lower terminus of the Plose skiing area. We follow the trail no. 8 in eastern direction, first slightly upwards across the forest.

Soon we reach the sun-drenched southern slopes of the Eores Mountain Pastures. A beautiful area at about 2,000 m a.s.l., characterized by pine forests, wide areas and a fantastic view of Mt. Sasso Putia and the Odle di Eores Group. Past the Schatzer Mountain Hut (Schatzerhütte) and later past the Gentian Mountain Hut (Enzianhütte), after about 4 km the path becomes a little more narrow and is less beaten. Up to this point we did not need to wear snow-shoes.

As we are already satisfied with the way we did so far, we decide to walk back on the same route. The view and the walking conditions make this tour a pleasant experience.
