Forecast

We will see another day of sunshine and clouds today. A weak front, which will not influence our weather very much, however, will bring us slightly less sunshine than yesterday. There may also be occasional snow showers.

Tendency

The winter will prepare its next attempt: the clouds will increase from the north giving way to snowfall on Thursday.

The Miners Trail takes you through an historical mining area in the Wörge Valley. The hike starts from the Dortmunder Hütte mountain hut in Kühtai and leads through breathtaking high alpine landscapes, past the Längental reservoir, to the Mittergrathütte mountain hut in the Hochötz ski area. Along the way, you pass the faithfully rebuilt Miners House (Knappenhaus) by Pochersee lake at the entrance to the Wörge Valley. Photos give an insight into the region's mining past and you can also learn more about the history of the local mountain pastures during the hike. After passing the Miners House, the route continues past the Balbachalm mountain hut to Hochötz. From there, the best way back is to take the gondola down to Ochsengarten and then the bus back to Kühtai.
