Author’s map recommendations
EquipmentWe 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
- 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
I glisten in brilliant white. Sometimes I am icy. Sometimes powdery. My surface reflects the sky’s blue. You can slide over me, kick me and pierce me. You get very close to nature. I make you feel better with every minute. Let me introduce myself: My name is Loipe Goms.
If you are interested in cross-country skiing, you best come to the mountain village Goms. The bottom of the high valley reaches from Niederwald (1251 m above sea level) to Oberwald (1377 m above sea level). Over 100 kilometres of cross-country skiing trails perfectly accessible to public transport thanks to the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway.
