A really great short trail for beginners or to stretch your legs in the snow. The start of the Stoos-Rieter Trail is just 50 m from the top station of the Schwyz-Stoos funicular railway. From there, it's a leisurely 600 m ride downhill towards Muotathal. Then there is an easy, but barely noticeable ascent of about 400 m and then it's almost straight on back to the starting point at the beginning of the mountain village Stoos.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator

Author’s recommendation

Visit to the Fronalpstock. (Ascent on the edge of the piste possible with snowshoes or by chairlift).
