Snowshoeing is booming. Especially in Covid 19 times. No wonder: distance and activities away from the hustle and bustle are in demand like never before. And the best way to get to where the snow-covered mountains of Davos Klosters are at their most unspoilt is on snowshoes. By the way, if you can walk, you can also snowshoe. Simply strap the snowshoes under your winter boots, take the poles in your hand and the adventure in Davos Klosters starts practically from the hotel door - from the summit tour to the leisurely hike on the valley floor.
The marked and secured summit tour on the Jakobshorn is particularly popular. It leads past the Stadlersee lake up to Rossboden at over 2,600 metres above sea level. Another tip is the alternative snow sports area of Pischa for snowshoe hiking. From up here you have a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and valleys. And on Madrisa, the signposted Zügenhüttli snowshoe trail tempts you with a magnificent view of Klosters and a break in the restaurant of the same name.
Not only on the mountains, but also in the valley there are beautiful tours to be had. In Davos, new snowshoe routes have been created on the Wolfgang (Wolfgang Trail) and in the lower section (Tinzenblick Trail, Landwasser Trail, Wildboden Trail). The routes are between two and five kilometres long. The starting and finishing points are also easily accessible by public transport. Two new routes have also been added in Klosters: the 3-Village Trail and the Alpenrösli Trail.
For all those who have no avalanche or snow knowledge, but still want to go high up, we recommend a guide. They will guide you safely off the marked trails through snow-covered forests and untouched winter landscapes. Incidentally, snowshoe hikes at full moon are a special nature experience - best combined with a typical local dinner in a mountain hut.
The unexpected appearance of a freerider can be problematic for wild animals in winter: an escape costs a lot of energy, which is then lacking to survive. Four simple rules help.
Freeriders are happy about a lot of fresh snow. For wild animals, on the other hand, this means one thing above all else: a naked fight for survival. Because what deer, deer, chamois and ibex normally scrape out of the snow to eat is now under a thick blanket of snow. Wild animals are therefore forced to use their energy sparingly. If they are disturbed and forced to flee, their survival is at risk.
