Winter walk to the Malga Prantner

This winter walk takes us from Smudres, a little village above Vipiteno, to the Malga Prantner mountain hut at 1,800 m asl.

Even if the weather is not too perfect, we decide to do a winter walk to the Malga Prantner above the city of Vipiteno, in the upper Valle Isarco valley. By car we go to Smudres, a village belonging to the municipality of Val di Vizze. 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, the Pranteralm.

After a delicious lunch and a chat with the guests and the lord, we start our speedy ride down to our starting point.
