Winter hike to the Prantner Mountain Hut

This winter walk takes from Smudres, a little village above Vipiteno, to the Prantner Mountain Hut at 1,800 m a.s.l.

Even if the weather is not too perfect, we decide to do a winter walk to the Prantner Mountain Hut (Prantner Alm) above the town of Vipiteno (Sterzing) in the Upper Valle Isarco. By car we go to Smudres (Schmuders), a village belonging to the municipality of the Val di Vizze valley.

From the Braunhof farm, at the end of the asphalted road, we start our walk, together with our dog Harry, who can't wait starting the walk. Most of the time, the route leads across the dense forest. We also brought our sledges, as this trail is also a toboggan run.

After about one hour of walking, we reach the mountain hut at 1,800 m a.s.l. After a delicious lunch and a chat with the guests and the lord, we start our speedy ride down to our starting point.
