When the Riffelhorn casts its dark shadow across the Riffelsee, evening is still a long way off. But this is a magical moment in winter, known as the blue hour. A calmness descends on the mountain; the ski pistes are far off. Take a deep breath and continue walking: soon the magnificent panorama reveals itself once again, with the Matterhorn, Obergabelhorn and Weisshorn. A winter’s day of fairy-tale beauty, sure to linger long in the memory.
The snowshoe trails can be tackled without a mountain guide. Beware: they are not prepared in any way and are not controlled daily; nor are they secured from natural hazards such as avalanches or rockfalls. For safety, check the weather forecast and current avalanche bulletin.
All snowshoeing is at one’s own risk.
Tip: “Be searchable”. Equip yourself with an additional RECCO rescue reflector*. Whether summer or winter. Available in our Online-Shop or our information desk.
*The additional reflector does not replace an avalanche beacon.
