The sun is smiling and the skies are bright blue: I slip into my winter boots or snow shoes and set off, full of joy! Today’s programme is winter hiking on Alpe di Siusi: My destination is the Rifugio Rauch, where you can get this delicious cranberry omelette and the amazing Buchteln yeast buns with custard. In the last few days I have already been to Lago di Fiè, to Malga Tuff, to Valle di Ciamin and at the foot of Catinaccio. On snowshoe hikes on Alpe di Siusi and surrounding area I particularly love the peaceful spots, viewpoints and idyllic places. Step by step I walk with the big shoes and leave the daily grind and all my thoughts behind me as the fresh mountain air streams through my lungs. Step by step I become a new person.
