Family TrailSnowshoeing

This snowshoe trail is an excellent choice for families. It is not too long, technically not challenging and not far from civilisation. It goes through a light forest where something can be seen time and again.

Description

The path through the forested area between Täsch and Randa is embedded in the valley of the Mattervispa and offers relaxation and leisure. The terrain is rich in variety – the way is a gradual descent and then a gentle climb. The route can be taken in both directions and is also suitable for snowshoeing when arriving by automobile. There is parking available in both villages. The return trip by train with the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn is uncomplicated. A train leaves every 30 minutes.

Beautiful upward view of the valley towards the Breithorn (4,164 m) and Klein Matterhorn (3,883 m).
Täsch – Atermenzen - Randa

(Hiking time in reverse direction: approx. 2h)

We recommend:
  • Good, waterproof footwear
  • Snowshoes
  • Hiking poles
  • Warm winter clothing appropriate for the weather
Spend some time in the Ranft chapel to light a candle and enjoy a moment of contemplation.

 

Additional information and recommendations are available from the guest information centre near Täsch station.

  • Plan every mountain tour carefully and adapt to participants’ fitness level as well as the weather and season.
  • Weather conditions can change quickly in the mountains. Appropriate clothing is therefore essential, along with adequate supplies of food and water. In uncertain weather, turn back in good time.
  • Inform others of planned route, and whenever possible avoid going alone.
  • Do not leave the marked routes.
  • It is forbidden to walk on the ski pistes.
  • Please be considerate to other walkers and to plants and animals.

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.
