The old folk says that weather forecasts were just in agriculture earlier generations fixed components in the management cycle and based on many years of observations collected over the year. 22 stations along the path on Bauernregel Schwemmberg above Altenmarkt provide information about weather phenomena. Some of these are still familiar to us.
Far from civilization, you walk with snowshoes surrounded by the snow-covered mountains. Crushing snow at every step that continues in the intact nature. Here you move on ancient paths, just as the miners centuries ago: intact nature, magic views, unique. For this route you need good area knowledge and skilled handling of the high alpine nature.
From Waldhäuslalm either the left or right bank along the Untertalbach. It soon becomes clear why the cross-country trails in Untertal are nicknamed Crystal Trail. It's great on snowshoes. About meadows and through forest paths the Seeleiten-parking (only in summer) can be reached within 1.5 hours walking on the valley. The way back is along the same trail.
At the start of this tour you go from the village along the path to Kreuzsalberg, passes the Stuhlweg, past residential buildings to Gasthaus Pröll further across mountain meadows to Stuhlköpfl (Middle Station - Gasthaus Galler). The valley, the route is approximately 2.000m via the forest and then left through the woods, over pastures and meadows to Viehhofbauer at the lift. From there you go back to the village. As a variant, it can also be reached with the lift to the middle station or the valley.
Along the slope - left off along the slope - a short distance next to the track direction Jägersee, then uphill and above the farm over meadows to a small creek on the trail - right up the hill you go in the lowland forest and a mountain meadow to Oberrainbauer. Underneath the building, the path leads over a slope, then down to the road - then further down the street (Waldstüberl) and after about 400m turn left through a meadow on Heustadl over. Below the forest again crossing the trail - along the stream and above winter hiking trail back to the sports field.
Because of its location between Hochkeil and Mandlwänden is Berghotel Arthurhaus the perfect starting point for a snowshoe hike on the Hochkönig. Nature can be seen from a very special side, bizarre snow glistens in the sun and the craggy peaks of Mandlwände in the winter sky. We start at (1500 m) at the parking Arthurhaus. The path leads past the ski lifts, the skislope along up to the Troiboden, past the old elevator cabin. We continue along the forest road back to Arthur House. We cross the Roßwiesschlepplift three times in total.
