Be enchanted by a snowshoe hiking tour through the snowed-in countryside on the Ratzi. Romantic starlit nights invite just as much to dreaming as magical wintery days.
From the top station Ratzi, you take the road as far as the top station of the cablecar Tristel. It is here that the ascent begins on a well marked hiking trail through the forest and the wonderful winter scenery towards the Älpeli. The altitude difference Tristel-Älpeli is about 100 m. From the highest point (1,681 m), the trail leads downwards to the hamlet Ratzismatt, the mountain restaurant Ratzi and to the top station of the cablecar Spiringen-Ratzi. In good weather and snow conditions, you have the possibility (Alternative A) to reach the Biel by walking along the road, but please remember to pay attention to the danger of avalanches.
Alternative A: Ratzi - Biel (Distance: 3.8 km / Hiking time: 1.75 h)

Winter hiking trail:
The primed winter hiking trail leads form the skiing area Ratzi to the skiing area Biel-Kinzig. The winter trail is 6 km long and a section of the «Schächentaler Höhenweg» (hiking trail high above the Schächen valley), which you can also marvel at in winter with its wonderful panorama.
