Hiking in South Tyrol: Val Senales, Maso Corto - Schnalstal, Kurzras

Summer emotions in Val Senales - Schnalstal - Maso Corto
Directly on Ötzi‘s trail with a real natural park ranger to learn something about his life in the nature? Discover how Ötzi went around with bow and arrows? Or maybe venture into rafting in the Adige River? Or even learn how to bake bread and prepare South Tyrolean Knödel in the kitchen of a countrywoman? What are all those wild herbs she uses? How is schnapps burnt and how does wine get into the bottle? And then maybe on the „Königstour“ to the place where the Iceman was found, with a local guide. It‘s a tough choice...

Maso Corto - 2.011 m

There are still more mountains areas. A wonderful backdrop of surrounding peaks, at a height of 3,000 metres, can be found all around Kurzras/Maso Corto, the highest of the five villages of Val Senales. The former grand farmhouse estate has developed into a sports village over the past three decades. Although some ski tourists discovered Maso Corto as a place for sports and relaxation, even at the beginning of the 30’s, it was the young, active farmer of the Kurzhof, Leo Gurschler, who took the initiative to build a glacier cable way facility, which was put into operation on 12th July 1975. With this cable way, he was able to offer employment to some people in the valley, which had been left without work after the dam had been built. Although the village is still small, visitors will find numerous possibilities for a relaxing mountain holiday: there are different leisure possibilities during the summer, as well as in the winter, shops, restaurants, pizzerias, discos and pubs for evening entertainment. A ski school, ski hire and service are also available. Also from Maso Corto, a herd of sheep is driven each year across the Italian-Austrian border to the meadows of the Venter Valley. The sheep drive takes place on the same day as the drive of Vernago (towards mid June). The return drive to Maso Corto is mostly a day before the Vernago event (mostly on 2nd Sunday in September).
