Tips for winter hikers

  • Wear good waterproof trekking shoes and use walking sticks that make it much easier to hike through snow.
  • Temperature differences during the day can be significant. Warm clothing, sunglasses and suncream will also protect you from unpleasant surprises.
  • Winter can transform nature into an amazing artwork. Keep a camera at the ready to capture images of these winter impressions.
  • However, the charms of the mountain and winter landscape are also associated with several hazards. In no circumstances leave the marked hiking routes!
  • You should also avoid hiking on ski slopes and cross-country ski runs.
