Snowshoeing

On soft feet through winter landscapes

Enjoy the fascination of our winter wonderlands on soft feet: snowshoes. Feel the crisp air, glance at our majestic peaks on your hike. Snowshoe trails can be found in the area of Rothwald and Rosswald or on the Simplon Pass.

Our insiders’ tip: As a perfect ending ritual to a long hike, we recommend you warm up with a fondue and an exquisite glass of Fendant – and last but not least –  "a clear" one to warm up even more. See brochure can be found in the download area.

Be a responsible snowshoe hiker!

Snowshoeing is a huge trend. As a result the local wildlife and forests are impacted negatively. An information campaign by the local wildlife, hunter and forestry service aims to educate our guests on this topic. We kindly ask you to follow our guidelines and respect nature on your hikes, for your own safety as well as the future of our environment. More on this topic can be found here.

Dieser Schneeschuhtrail führt an den Chalets vom Rosswald vorbei und bietet eine wunderschöne Aussicht auf das Rohnetal und das Gantertal. Der Trail ist eher gemütlich und für jeden machbar.

Tips, hints and links

The winter conditions and protected areas of the animals are predominantly in the forest. In order to keep the animals quiet, you have to follow the path markings. Information boards at the respective starting points of the trails and at the necessary places point out this problem. In cooperation with the Wildhut and the forest managers, the listed trails have been classified as being game and forest friendly. The snowshoe walkers are asked not to leave the marked trails - for their safety and to protect the animals in the forest. We would like to thank you for your consideration and wish you wonderful winter hiking experiences.
