Winter hike to the Häusler Sam mountain hut

A pleasant excursion leads us from Obereggen to the Häusler Sam mountain hut at the Monte Sommo mountain.

Starting point of our winter hike to the Häusler Sam is the upper parking space of the Obereggen skiing area. The path no. 9 (“Karersee”) leads us through the snowy conifer forest to the Bewaller farm above the hamlet of Hennewinkl, then we follow the path no. 8 and afterwards the marker S until the Häusler Sam.

The path is wide and only short sections are a bit steeper. Clearings open the view on the surrounding alpine world (Corno Bianco, Corno Nero, Latemar e Catinaccio). The mountain hut is ideal to take a break for lunch. Our way back to Obereggen is done along the same route.
