Which equipment for snow-shoe hiking?
Hiking is not only fun on dry ground in summer and autumn. In winter you will get to know the natural surroundings covered in magical white. You can either hike with or without special snow shoes. On cleared winter hiking paths, you will need nothing but warm winter clothes and sturdy hiking boots. If you decide to hike on wild terrain, you will need snow shoes that are simply fastened under the normal winter shoes. Those who do not bring their own pair can just rent top modern equipment in Obertauern’s sport shops. Then your adventure can start!
