You start directly from the top station of the Plose cable car. Right next to the sun terrace of La Finestra restaurant, the trail leads as a shared trail past the Gasthof Geisler to the crossroads with the ski slope. Immediately after crossing the ski slope you decide whether to take the upper trail or the somewhat more demanding lower trail. Both paths are regularly prepared and lead slightly uphill for about 2.5 km to one of the most popular huts in the entire Plose area. The lower path climbs a little steeper at the end and is very suitable for snowshoe hikers.
Hike through a fairytale winter landscape to the Rossalm, one of the most beautiful ski huts in South Tyrol.  The way back is along the same route or alternatively you can choose one of the two alternatives.  The hike is also suitable for snowshoes.
