The winter hike starts at Panüöl. You can reach this starting point with the gondola lift from Tannenboden to Maschgenkamm and then take the 6-seater chairlift down to Panüöl. Another possibility is to hike from Prodalp to Panüöl on the winter hiking trail. From Panüöl, follow the signs to Fursch on the winter hiking trail. You walk past the valley station of the Panüöl 6-seater chairlift. Your gaze is always directed towards the Spitzmeilen. After a short while, you pass the Plattis stirrup lift on the right and reach the highest point after half of the trail. The trail then leads slightly downhill until you reach the Fursch tea hut. Once there, you can enjoy the winter panorama.
