The Dolomites of Prags during the winter season
Bring your sled!

From Brückele in the eastern valley of Prags (1491 m, you can get here by car, taking the road between Welsberg and Niederdorf, you can rent a sled in the hotel of the same name) you walk the path that leads to the location Plätzwiese until you reach the path (n. 18) that goes to the right (wide forest road). Walking slightly uphill you get into the valley Stollatal until you reach an almost flat ground (always M18) and uphill to the alp Stollaalm (1747 m, closed during the winter season). Still uphill you will eventually turn left and via ups and downs you will walk to the east until you reach the hut Plätzwiese (1991 m, to the south you will find the hotel Hohe Gaisl and even further south you can reach the hut Dürrensteinhütte, all of which are open also in the winter season),from Brückele approx. 2h. Descent: From the location Plätzwiese you follow the road and turn left onto the slope for sleds (which you can also walk on, M37) that leads over the hillsides into the valley Prags
