Valdurna – Großalmtal – Fortschellscharte
The starting point for this fantastic snowshoe hike is the car park in Valdurna/Durnholz. After a short ascent to the outflow of the lake, it is already time to put on your snowshoes. Following the lovely forest trail on the orographic left bank to the northern end of lake, the tour then continues along the stream, first to the east through the Großalmtal valley in shade but glittering with powder snow. As you gain height you come to sunny pasture ridges and via the Innerhütten-Alm Alpine pasture to the Fortschellscharte gap.
Tip: when snow conditions are good, definitely ascend the nearby Kassianspitze peak (2,581 m, ascent: approx. 1 hour).
Reverse the route to return to the starting point at the Valdurna car park.
