Snowshoe Tour Taster Course
Snowshoeing is child's play, and it's even easier with an introduction to the right technique.
In connection with a beginner's tour (approx. 2 - 2.5 hours), Kathi will explain to you some basics in the areas relevant to snowshoes, such as walking technique, material, equipment, avalanche report (where do I get the latest information from), risk assessment, what to look out for in nature, especially in wildlife rest and protection zones, what is the best technique in steep terrain, etc.
Snowshoes and poles can be hired from Kathi for CHF 18.00 per person.
