In Ridnaun/Ridanna, nature enthusiasts will encounter a plethora of hiking opportunities. Thus, right alongside the beautiful cross-country skiing, you'll find a well-groomed winter trail. Winter hiking trails are likewise to be found on many an alpine meadow. Some (such as the way to the Stadlalm) even offer you the option of making your return downhill trip via toboggan. This hosted alpine hut can be reached from Maiern/Masseria in about 1 hour of walking time. After a hearty snack, you can then board the sled and race in brisk ride down the valley. From Ratschings/Racines, trails lead, e.g., to the Wumbls Alm (not hosted in the wintertime) and from the mountain station of the new 8-person gondola to the Kalcheralm at the Jaufen Pass.
