Right behind the church of Oberwald the romantic snow-shoe trail leads from everyday hustle away to the seclusion of the snowy mountain forests. Reaching the highest point of the tour in the midst of a silent clearing you are invited to a refreshing break at the Hotel / Restaurant Rhonequelle. Before passing the “Pischewald” as a gateway back to civilization, take a breather at the legendary Chapel St. Niklaus, with sweeping views across the Rhone Valley.

Author’s recommendation

Especially recommended in snowfall. The forest also offers good wind protection.

Safety information

The use of the winter hiking trails is at your own risk. Obergoms Tourismus AG disclaims all liability and assumes no responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of the information on this website.

Take a map with you or download the complete description of the route with a large-scale map. Use only signposted paths and observe all markings and signs - for your own safety, for the protection of the landscape and in respect for wildlife. Be considerate of other users. Take your rubbish and that of others with you.

Weather conditions in the mountains can change very quickly and without warning. Adequate clothing and provisions (food and drink) are very important. If the weather is unstable, it is better to turn around early. Carry additional sun protection with you. UV rays at high altitudes can be very strong, especially in winter, even when the sky is overcast.

Plan your tour carefully and in detail. Inform yourself in advance about the current conditions (avalanche danger, cross-country ski runs, winter hiking trails, snow trails and road conditions) and weather conditions. The winter sports report provides you with valuable information from the region.

Equipment

We recommend good snowshoes:
  • Robust snowshoes and sturdy poles
  • Detailed map or information material with good tour preparation
  • Weatherproof (waterproof and windproof) warm clothing and headgear
  • Sunglasses
  • Good sun protection, even in cloudy weather. UV rays at high altitudes can be very strong, especially in winter.
  • Provisions for your day in the great outdoors
