A short walk takes skiers to the country ski run which alternately climbs and descends through the romantic Verwall valley to the restaurant Wagner Hütte and the Verwall lake.

The cosy Wagner hut, which lies directly adjacent to the Verwall cross-country ski run, is ideal for a stopover or a substantial meal. Skiers can refuel with homemade Tirolean specialties and refreshing drinks surrounded by the beautiful natural scenery. Winter hikers or cross-country skiers who are completely exhausted can take the bus back to the Mooserkreuz and to St. Anton (charges apply).
