Trail description

From the Gondola Base of Hopfgarten, head towards Lindrain and continue walking to Sunnseit Hut, which translates to “Sunny Side Hut”. Take in the stunning views of the Kitzbühel Alps and Hohe Tauern Range that capture the sheer greatness of the mountains themselves. Pause for a rest, relax and watch the snow fly with a warm drink at quaint Sunnseit Hut. Once replete and refreshed, retrace your steps to the base of Hopfgarten.

Please Note: Be prepared to adjust your activity based on current conditions. As a general rule, if there is fresh snow, conditions may be better suited for snowshoeing; if the snow is old and well-travelled, it may be better for winter walking. For avalanche conditions visit
