In harmony with the winter wonderland of the Gosau valley. The number of followers of alternative winter sports, away from the ski slopes, continues to grow. The harmony with the nature in winter plays an important role. Enjoying winter in peace, white untracked mountain slopes, working off energy, feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin and thinking about the stop at the traditional mountain hut - all this makes snowshoeing, during a winter holiday in the Salzkammergut, so attractive. Not to mention that you do not have to buy expensive ski passes.
