    Train Hopping in The Alps Summer 2018

    Nctmh,,my oWj

    Edit:
    Yeah, this shit tends to flip my lid, weird shit happens. I made it into the Dolomites briefly last year and am not going to kick the habit for a while, headed back this fall. And soon enough planning a ski trip at, Id like to see how much I can do skiing area to area, and train hopping. Plenty of off the radar places that would make me happy to explore, even it it is groomers and a party.

    yum...I love roesti.... Thanks for adding another meat picture, too, albeit two skinny dogs with french fries and ketchup seems startingly American.

    To further dork out on this I put together your route so far in google maps to place some of these foreign names.

    That's not quite right.

    From Bad Gastein, one can take a train through a tunnel to Mallnitz and then Spittal and der Drau, not the loop East shown.

    Do I make 2 week a loop from Schruns to the Arlberg or do the Gasterinertal/Mallnitz/Moeltaller/Val Gardena loop?

    Yeah, it was not an option from google maps to have multiple stops on the train or drive through the tunnel.

    Neither would be a bad choice but gasterinertal mallnitz sounds most intriguing to me.

    Mallnitz looks cool: a 2 stage cable car ascending 1400+ meters with some pomas on top. The upper half is alpine and has limited gnar, but some steeps, the lower portion is in the trees.


    Then just an hour North is this place:

    Here's a great Austrian rail map. Obertraun/Krippenstein appears to be on a route.

    The ski bums I talked to in Bad gastein said the biggest lines in the spring were to take the train to Mallnitz, then a 40E taxi to Moeltaller, then ski down the northside of the Scharaeck back to Gasteinertal.
    3100m down to 1400 in Sportgastein.

    Awesome! my mind wandered to that option as I looked at that area in google maps. I really do not know, but it appears that there are plenty of options to link valleys like that. Lift serve, a ski tour, and drop into the next valley.

    Hallstatt (bottom map lower right) is a cool little place worth a walk around (or at least it was 20 years ago).

    Great trip report.
