Forecast

We will experience typical foehn weather conditions on Friday. The sky will be bright with some mountain peaks being shrouded in “foehn fish clouds” (in technical jargon: “Altocumulus lenticularis”). The wind will be gusty at times and values will of course be mild.

Tendency

We are in autumn now and thus in the middle of the foehn season! This time of year is particularly known for its long-lasting foehn periods.

Before Thursday we will experience just such a foehn period: the wind will be strong at times allowing fair and very mild weather.

Located in the Stubai Alps, the Westfalenhaus refuge is the base for climbing the surrounding peaks.

Starting in Lüsens, follow the road along the Melach river until the head of the Lüsens Valley. Leave the cable car building (freight haulage only) and the hostel building behind, turn right and begin the steep ascent through copses of native forest to the Längental pasture with its alpine huts. Continue your hike beneath the mighty rock faces and rugged bluffs of the Lüsener Fernerkogel. After having crossed the Längental river, the path climbs to the north towards the hut.
Return: on the Sommerweg trail you traverse several trenches as you hike along the mountain flanks. From there the trail leads you through forest and mountain pines back to your starting point.
