Easy walk on Reiteralm with nice viewpoints at play areas for the kids. The new "Adventure Gondola World" is also close-by.
This short walking loop at Reiteralm is perfect for the whole family. The route, which is suitable for buggies runs along gravel trail and a short section of gravel road. You reach the starting point via Preunegg-Jet cable car from Bankwirt inn in Preuneggtal. On top, at Gasselhöh-Hütte and Reiteralmhütte the walking route takes you to the "Summer Snow" exhibition, Reiteralmsee Lake, the Adventure Gondola World and the "Summer Snow Groomer".
Exit from federal highway B320 in Pichl (4 km West of Schladming) and continue on Preuneggstraße to the valley terminal of Preunegg-Jet cable car. From there you can also drive up to Reiteralm via Reiteralmstraße road (a toll road from Almdorf Reiteralm), which ends at Gasselhöh'-Hütte Inn.
The short tour starts at the mountain terminal of Preunegg-Jet cable car (car parking at Gasselhöh'-Hütte Inn respectively) on Reiteralm. Left of Reiteralmsee Lake you head down to the pump building below the lake where the exhibition "Summer Snow" is situated. Here you get interesting information about machine snow in winter.
From the building you cross the meadow (in winter a ski piste) and follow the trail into a timber forest to a hidden view point with benches for a rest. Via some turns you walk downhill for a bit and then cross over the meadow again and reach a small pond. Here the trail to Untersee Lake branches off.
From the small pond you walk up via 2 turns and cross over a meadow (a ski piste in winter) towards Reiteralmhütte Inn. After a short walk uphill you reach the trail head at the mountain terminal of Preunegg-Jet cable car again.
Take a look at the "Adventure Gondola World" which is near the small walking loop, close to Reiteralmhütte inn.
