From the mountain station Schwänzelegg (1778m) it goes down briefly to the signalled start of the lap. One climbs a small wooded back, turns right along the winter hiking trail and then uses the common track again in a short ascending piece. Shortly before Alp Wiesli, the snowshoe trail branches off in a southerly direction to Alp Rona. The view towards Calanda and Surselva is impressive. After a short flat piece, it goes up to the left through a valley, to reach after about 80Hm the highest point of the tour, the Höhsäss (1824m). Afterwards, the tour leads first on a hill through the clear forest, then it goes mainly downhill until one reaches the edge of the forest. Now follow the winter hiking trails of the municipality of Furna to the chairlift Danusa, where the tour ends at the Berghaus Schwänzelegg on the sun terrace.


In addition to the Berghaus Schwänzelegg, there are other places to stop for refreshments on Danusa: the "Patschifig" with a cosy lounge or the "Red Fox" après-ski hut.

The tour can also be done from Furna (starting at the Ronabord or Danusa car parks, toll road).


The marked snowshoe tour leads into the unsecured winter terrain. It is up to each tourer to fully equip themselves and to inform themselves about the snow and avalanche conditions before the tour.

The time indication is a guideline in good conditions for reasonably experienced tourers. Times for snowshoe tours can vary greatly depending on conditions, equipment and condition. Allow enough time.

This description and the marking in the terrain do not constitute a recommendation for inspection. Each inspection decision is the sole responsibility of the individual tourer. An inspection in poor visibility conditions (fog, snowfall) is strongly discouraged.
