The summer-like period of fine weather is slowly coming to an end! During the change, increasing humidity will add to the heat. The morning will start bright, but with cumulus cloud increasing and the air becoming sultry, showers and thunderstorms will develop. Strong gales and even hail are expected!
After a fairly cloudy and cool Saturday, a new area of high pressure will follow on Sunday and persist for the next few days.
This wonderful tour connects the Mutterer, Raitiser (unserviced) and Kreither alpine huts. From the latter, the route heads into the valley towards Stockerhof where, just before you reach it, the route turns right and goes acros Telfer Wiesen, Kreith and Raitis towards Mutters.Although technically easy along wide forestry roads, the steady incline towards the Mutterer hut requires plenty of stamina. The serviced alpine huts score with their excellent cuisine and regional delicacies, and wonderful views of the Wipp and Stubai valleys and the Patscherkofel.Tips - the tour is more suitable for families when the Muttereralm cable car is used for the ascent. For those who wish to start the tour from the other direction, descent is possible from Mutterer Alm along the single trail towards Mutters - assuming suitable cycling know-how.
