Winter hiking path and sledge run Juifenalm

Above the Lüsener valley, a side valley near Gries im Sellrain, the Juifenalm is located at a sunny spot straight at the timber line.

In the Lüsener valley, immediately after the village of Juifenau, a parking space at the beginning of the forest road up to the Juifenalm mountain hut can be found. Through the snowy forest we walk uphill along the forest path (also sledge run). This forest road from the valley up to the mountain hut in winter is reserved for hikers and tobogganists.

In the upper section, the view across the Lüsener valley becomes better and better. We pass the Jagdhütte (hunting lodge) and our destination is not that far anymore. The Juifenalm mountain hut (2,022 m asl) is located at the slope on a clearing and is a popular rest point among locals and holidaymakers.

It offers delicious food and a gorgeous view on Mt Zischgeles (3,004 m asl), Mt Rietzer Griesskogel (2,884 m asl), Mt Freihut (2,627 m asl) and the Lampsenspitze peak (2,875 m asl). And the best comes for last! A fantastic downhill run by sledge until the valley bottom.
