What are the characteristics of snowshoes?

Wading through the snow

Snowshoes have a very characteristic shape. Due to the large surface area, you won’t sink into the deep snow when you are wearing snowshoes, staying on the surface instead. This means that, even if there are masses of snow on the ground, you will be able to move gracefully through the winter countryside. The binding is mounted to the middle of the snowshoe.

You can use snowshoes wearing traditional street shoes. However, we recommend going with waterproof shoes. The bindings can be individually adjusted and tightened late if they happen to be too loose. Furthermore, all our rental shoes are equipped with a climbing accessory that gives you a sure footing even when you are negotiating steeper terrain. The teeth dig into the snow, allowing unrestricted mobility, even on icy patches.

Popular snowshoe tours in Lenzerheide

Trudging through a glorious natural setting

In and around Lenzerheide, numerous snowshoe tours invite you to enjoy sporting activity in the fresh air together with friends or family. Choose between easy routes and challenging tours.

The Scharmoin snowshoe tour is 2.2 kilometres long, leading next to the pistes before branching off to a scenic plateau below the Parpaner Rothorn. A full tour, it is suitable for all abilities and easy to complete.

Meanwhile, the Val Sporz snowshoe trail is more challenging. Taking 2 ½ hours from start to finish across constantly changing terrain, stamina being an important factor. Especially the steep descent at the end of the hike is only suitable for snowshoers who have already gained some experience in the sport.

A shorter, though no less challenging hike awaits you at the Era Vedra. In this case, your starting point is the valley station of the Rothornbahn, leading you on foot to the Scharmoin mid-station. At the start, roughly 500 vertical meters separate you from the final goal of this snowshoe expedition. However, the trail does not lead you next to the busy pistes, but rather through the forest, making this particular route a very popular choice.
