Winter and snowshoe hikes

When nature withdraws and the first snowflakes fall on trees, pastures and huts, a silence spreads that absorbs all sounds, so that only your own breath and the crunching of snow under your feet can be heard. On the Vigiljoch, nature rules. Meditative tranquillity accompanies winter hikes through forests with a smell of resin and across vast meadows. After abundant snowfall, there is a good chance that you will be able to leave your first tracks over pristine white surfaces on snowshoes. The trails to the ski area and to the huts have good visible tracks. Apart from the Bärenbadalm and the Naturnser Alm, the restaurants on the Vigiljoch are also open in winter.

Snowshoes (without poles) can be rented at the cable car valley station.

Ski fun on natural snow

Those who prefer to take leisurely turns away from the hustle and bustle of busy ski circuits on family-friendly natural snow slopes will find pristine and tranquil winter magic on Vigiljoch’s five kilometres of slopes. Pleasure skiers appreciate the deep tranquillity and flair of yesteryear, when Lana’s local mountain was considered the epitome of the alpine ski scene and where numerous ski and fun races were held. And the same applies today as it did then: the slopes are open as long as Old Mother Frost allows it.
