WHAT ARE THE DISTINGUISHING FEATURES OF THE SNOW SHOES?
Easy movement on the snow surface
The snowshoes for rent offer a simple opening and closing mechanism. You can simply step into the binding and then adjust it to the desired fit using a buckle. The snowshoes can be worn with simple street shoes. We recommend that you choose waterproof footwear so that you always have dry feet on further hikes.
The snowshoes also have a simple integrated climbing aid. Especially on steeper climbs, you won't slip off and always have firm traction on the snowy ground. This is further enhanced by the widened tread surface. However, the functionalities of snowshoes also have limits, which is why we advise against using snowshoes above a certain incline, especially in the mountains.

THE BEST ROUTES FOR HIKING WITH SNOWSHOES
Cross-country through the snow-covered landscape
In principle, the range of uses for snowshoes in winter in Zermatt is very extensive. Nevertheless, when choosing your route, you should always use recommended or specially designed tracks. Especially due to the masses of snow in winter in Zermatt, an excursion off the marked trails can quickly become risky.
The best-known and most popular tour for a hike with snowshoes is the Panorama Trail from Riffelberg to Rotenboden. The hike in the opposite direction is also very popular due to the varied terrain and the great views.
Another beautiful route starts from Riffelalp and runs in the direction of Findeln. An impressive backdrop awaits you here, as the majority of the hike runs through the snow-covered forest. On arrival in Findeln, the sun terraces there invite you to visit and enjoy the finest dishes and wines.
