Central Switzerland: panoramic snowshoe hike
Sign-posted snowshoe trails accompany beginners and inexperienced skiers through the unspoiled alpine snow landscape. From the starting point at Rigi Kulm, beautiful trails of about 1 to 2.5 hours extend through the Chäserenholz area.
Snowshoeing does not require any special technical skills and can be practiced by anyone, even on the prepared winter hiking trails.
The necessary equipment can be rented at the Rigi Kulm Rental Centre and at the Rigi-Sport-Kiosk Rigi Kaltbad.
For your information
The current operating status of the cable cars and hiking trails can be found here.
In order to let our next generation could also enjoy the beauty of the Rigi, we would like to ask you to dispose of your own waste in the waste bins which are located at all the stations of RIGI BAHNEN AG. Thank you.
