Tour description

From the main square in Lauenen the route heads, along the skilift, in a south-westerly direction to Brüchli. It continues uphill to the Chrine Pass and then northwards to the Wispile. There is a wonderful view at 1900 m. The gondola lift takes you to the Wispile valley station, from where you can catch the bus back to Gstaad or Lauenen.

This snowshoeing tour is not marked.


Snowshoeing requires appropriate preparation (training, equipment) and good conditions regarding the weather as well the avalanche situation. The time indications are approximate values and significant for skilled snowshoe walkers and good weather conditions.
