Winter hike on the Bullaccia

This wintry hike and sledge ride takes us to the Arnika Mountain Hut on the Bullaccia mountain. 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 (1,850 m a.s.l.) from Siusi. From here we follow the signpost PU to the Bullaccia (Puflatsch). 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 Puflatsch Mountain Hut (1,950 m a.s.l.) we meet again.

From here it takes about 20 minutes to the Arnika Mountain Hut, 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. Sciliar, Sassolungo and Sassopiatto and the Sella Group. We enjoy our lunch at the Arnika Mountain Hut where we mainly meet hikers, but also some skiers, who are brought back up to the ski slopes by ski taxi.

For our way back we take the same route, sometimes on foot, sometimes on the sledge. After the Tschötsch Alm mountain hut the sledge run becomes faster. At the mountain station of the Eurolift we get off the sledge and walk the last 10 minutes back to Compaccio.
