The terrain in the valley floor in Randa is not as flat as Täsch. If you’re seeking a technical challenge, then Randa is the right place. The cross-country skiing trail – for both classic and skate skiing – is bristling with tricky ascents and thrilling descents and requires fitness, technical ability and muscle strength.
The majority of the Randa trail winds through snowy woodland. The highest point of the trail is reached after around 1.5 kilometres and is followed by the first exciting descent, past Camping Attermenzen and back towards Randa. The trail topography here is also hilly and you need all your concentration to ensure you don't end up falling in the snow on the short descents.
If you’d prefer less challenging terrain, head for the easier trail in Täsch.
