The Snowshoe Route Bidanätsch leads from the Gadastatt mountain station of the Vals sports lifts into a varied winter landscape. For the approximately 5.6 km long, continuously marked route, three hours of walking are to be taken into account. Open fir forests, wide alpine areas and an extensive mountain panorama surround the snowshoe hikers on their less than steep march at an altitude between 1800 and 2000 meters above sea level.M. The route is divided into a small round (Gadastatt to Kristallloch) and a big round (round trip from Kristallloch).


Take a leisurely break in the panoramic restaurant Gadastatt. Enjoy the beautiful mountain panorama on the terrace when the sun is shining.
