Just behind the car-free holiday resort lies the small mountain lake. In winter its water is used to make snow on the slopes, in summer children love it because of its water play equipment. From Stoos-Seeli the hike leads in the direction of Frontal. The Teufböni moor rests under the thick blanket of snow. Before your eyes lies a panorama that stretches from the mountain village of Stoos to the Schwyz basin and on to the two myths. Finally, the circular route leads back to the village, where the cosy guest rooms invite you to warm up again.

Author’s recommendation

Stop at a cosy restaurant on the Stoos to warm up.
