Snow Shoe Hiking - Brechhorn Summit

The departure point for this snow shoe tour is the bottom station of the ski lifts Windauberg / Gampenkogel in the heart of Westendorf’s ski resort. To get to this point there are a few options:

Travel with the Alpenrosenbahn gondola to the mountain-top station – walk along the ski track in the direction of the Fleidingalm – Brechhornhaus (duration on foot: 1 hour approx.)
Travel to the Schrandlhof in the Oberwindau – walk uphill along the toboggan track in the direction of the Fleidingalm – branch off in the direction of Brechhornhaus (duration on foot: approx. 1 hr 45 mins, approx. 600 metres elevation uphill)
Travel with the KiWest gondola in Aschau – short descent (duration on foot: approx. 15 minutes)  ​

Initially follow the driving route in the direction of Schledernalm where you will see some climbing tracks!  Pass the mountain farm buildings and after approx. 300 – 400 metres turn left, uphill to the Feldbergalm mountain hut.  Keeping slightly to the left here brings you onto the ridge which leads directly to the summit. The descent is the same route!
