Snowshoe hiking

Your cheeks turn red, your eyes marvel at what's all around you and your face radiates with joy while snowshoe hiking in Kühtai. Enthusiasm knows no bounds when you hike step by step through the unspoilt nature. Pure nature and absolute serenity. Only the snow crunches under your feet.

Winter hiking trails

The winter wonderland of Kühtai can also be explored on foot along some amazingly beautiful trails: 

  • The hiking path to the Zirmbach is a leisurely, family-friendly route. It starts at the tourist information office and runs along a small track from the Hoch-Alter car park towards the baby lift.
  • The Kaiser-Franz-Josefsweg begins at the Sonnenlift below the underpass and leads through a beautiful Swiss stone pine forest towards Ötz.
  • The Knappenweg begins by the Kühtai fire station and leads slightly uphill through the ski slope tunnel. You can continue your hike from here to the Graf-Ferdinand-Haus and end it with a fun toboggan run.

Tobogganing - always a load of fun

Ready, steady, action – is the name of the game when you head down into the valley on a toboggan!
A family-friendly toboggan run starts by the Graf-Ferdinand-Haus, which can be reached from the valley station of the Drei-Seen-Bahn lift after an approx. 50-minute ascent. After taking a leisurely refreshment break at the hut, you can rent a toboggan on site for a fee and begin your tobogganing adventure right away. Those who like being romantic can also go tobogganing in the moonlight. The toboggan run is illuminated until midnight.
