- Stick to the marked winter hiking trails in winter (purple signposts).
- Check the status of the trail before you set off too.
- In case of avalanche risk, check that the trail is open (information panels at the lift station).
- The weather can change quickly in the mountains, hence take always a warm sweater and a winter coat with you.
- Wear winter boots and take enough food and drink with you.
- Do not go alone. Let other people know where you are planning to hike and inform them when you arrive back.
- Observe changes in the weather and turn back in case of doubtful weather.
- Do not set foot on a glacier or leave the marked winter hiking paths without a mountain guide.
- Do not harm plants and animals.
- Never walk straight through forests or across fields; always use existing roads and paths.
- Be courteous to skiers, other hikers and pedestrians.
- “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
- Stay up-to-date with the weather and avalanche status: Snow Report
- More information is available in the Swiss avalanche bulletins (www.slf.ch)
