Guided snowshoeing hike above Davos

There is already a lot of snow in many places, and even more in Graubünden! Plus the weather forecast for this weekend is not too bad, so let’s go snowshoeing!

You probably know Davos for skiing or from the World Economic Forum, but it is also a great place for snowshoeing! Join us for this beautiful, wild and relaxed snowshoe tour on Sunday!

This trip is led by Otto van Andel, International Mountain Leader.

What’s the plan?

Meet Otto at Davos Frauenkirch at 09:50. From there we drive up to the parking lot at Uf da Mälcherna.

We then start our circle snowshoe hike to Chummeralp and keep walking up Chummerberg, at the foot of Schwarzhorn, Tiejer Flue and Fuggarhorn. We aim to go up to 2400m before starting our descent via Stafelalp and return to the car park.

Requirements

To join this event, you need to be a fit hiker. No previous snowshoeing experience needed.

How to get there

If you are traveling from Zurich by public transport, we recommend you to take the following:

-Zurich HB 07:07 – 09:47 Davos Frauenkirch
-Return from Davos Frauenkirch in the afternoon

The hike is adapted to the avalanche danger / subject to change. Therefore we recommend you to book your train ticket on Saturday once we can confirm the exact destination.
