Thick snowflakes float down from above and Damüls looks like it is packed in candy floss. The powdery landscapes beckon promisingly. Secluded forest paths entice you to go uphill. A winter and skiing holiday in Vorarlberg is above all one thing: wonderfully varied. Whether you go on a winter or a snowshoe hike, go sledding or cross-country skiing – here you can enjoy the winter to its fullest even away from the slopes.
Away from the slopes
THE WINTER WONDERLAND HAS MANY FACETS
It is a particular pleasure to walk through the white winter wonderland on foot. Especially when there are so many paths to choose from. Damüls offers more than 15 kilometres of an optimally prepared winter hiking network. You can also go for a walk in the evening, especially on the illuminated “Schmuseweg,” where wooden huts will invite you to go in and take a break.
Damüls is the snowiest village in the world and therefore it is particularly popular with snowshoe hikers from near and far. Stomping over soft white hills and through forests covered in snow gives you a unique feeling of happiness. The BERGaktiv Team offers free weekly guided tours to the “Deep woods”.
Damüls offers two high-altitude cross-country trails with eleven kilometres of sunny cross-country skiing that are prepared daily. The easy “Unterdamüls” trail leads across flat terrain from Kirchdorf to Alpe Unterdamüls. The highest altitude cross-country trail in Vorarlberg is the “Stofel” trail. It is located at about 1,700 metres in Oberdamüls and is also prepared as a skating trail.
The natural toboggan run Uga in Damüls is prepared daily and thrills visitors with 2.5 kilometres of tobogganing joy. The starting point of the challenging run is located directly at the Uga Express mountain station. Evening tobogganing parties are possible twice a week thanks to the floodlights.
Snowboarders will find everything their hearts desire at the Damüls snowpark. Due to the creative positioning of all the obstacles, every year a part is created anew that leaves nothing to be desired. You can select from among seven different runs and the All-Mountain-Line. The motivated crew makes sure on site that everything is in a good condition.
