Time of the year: Throughout winter
Avalanche risk: located on a steep slope of the Sailer Valley, pay attention to snow slabs!
Refreshment stop: Auerhof inn, Wanserhof inn
From Merano / Meran to the Passeier Valley in direction of Passo Giovo until Valtina / Walten.
Starting point: Wans at 1,439 m
Walk along a forest path to the Wanser Alm alpine pasture (1,627 m a.s.l.). From there to the end of the valley, where one first keeps to the left and then through an arc to the right, and finally an ever steeper incline leads to the awaiting Wanser Joch ridge (2,256 m a.s.l.). From there ascend to the Sarntal Valley side, until reaching the ridges and summits of the Alpenspitze peak.
Departure: same as ascent. In very good conditions, it is possible to descent via the Sailer Valley to the starting point.
