White Gold
A classic in the Mittelvinschgau. On the trail of the White Gold with a fast downhill variant.

Start at the ➊ main square in Laas. We cross the ➋ Etsch bridge, keep left, roll along the cycle path until after 500 m the ascent ➌ Tarnell is signposted on the right. The 13.5 km long, 1255 hm long ascent to the marble quarry is quite even. While the road is initially paved with black asphalt, above ➍ Tarnell it becomes a marble road in the truest sense of the word. White gravel marble makes the drive an experience and before you know it you can already see the old workers' huts and, in the background, the entrance to the ➎ mining gallery. Unfortunately it is not possible to get to the gallery, but you do get a good insight into how the white gold is mined. The descent is first via the same path to the junction ➏ path no. 3 to the ➐ Göflaner Alm. After a stop at the alpine pasture, the tour takes you along the gravel road to the ➑ Kohlplätzen. Pass to the right and above the small hut via trail no. 2 to the ➒ Weißkaseralm. Near the Haslhof, the descent begins via the legendary ➓ Holy
