In winter, there are two marked snowshoe hiking trails which lead you through the beautiful countryside on the deeply snowed-in and sunny Arni hill, high above the Reuss valley.
The loop road to the lakes is particularly suitable for beginners and leads the hiker across rather even terrain with only little ups and downs. The additional stretch (Alternative A) guides you the way to the mountain chapel and via Torli to the Diessen fountain back to the top station. The route is marked in blue colour.
The more proficient snowshoe hikers use the right side of the lake trail and bend off at the end of the lake towards Mittel and Vorder Arni. From the top station of the cable railway Vorder Arni, the hiking trail leads you to the vantage point Vorder Arni and via «Höll» back to the lake and the top station of the cable railway Intschi-Arni.
Variante A: Arni - Arnisee - Mountain chapel - Torli - Diessenbrunnen - Arni (Distance: 5.1 km / Hiking time: 2.25 h / for beginners)
