Hiking St. Anton am Arlberg Region – Austria

From saturday till sunday we went to a hike to a  2395m high alpine hut which was on my absolute to see list since years. Bad weather or snow and bad maps were the reason I did not made it there yet. After a steady 5-6 hours wandering uphill we made it to the already warmed up cabin. 2 hiking couples moved already in and they even made too much pasta. We were generous enough to help them to recycle this well made dinner. In exchange we did the washing and I shared my last drops of Flor de Cana Rum with them.

This was also the first time I was just in time to feast on blueberries, they were always too green or too ripe. The mountains and the landscape in this area is great as well. On the way we passed some really rustic cabins for shelter and as hunting base as well.

I definitely have to head back there before winter comes for one or two nights.

After some delays be-cause of heavy snow on the motorway and too much snow on the pass, we finally made our way to St. Anton at around 2pm to our starting point of the trip.
Unfortunately after about an hour in the route we found out that the “Rosanna-schlucht” / “Rosanna canyon” indeed is something steep. That is usually obvious by the word “schlucht/canyon”. Walking this canyon in summer and the in winter can be a different league. A couple of times we were close to turn around and walk back to the official winter path but due to laziness and courage we made (digged) our way trough. After another 3 and a half exhausting hours, taking turns who will be the first to compress the powder about 30 cm down, we arrived half an hour after darkness at the hut. After the oven ran and the first snow was melted to prepare some hot soup the party began.
