This wonderful circular tour starts at the middle station of the Stand Xpress and follows the Metsch snowshoe trail to the edge of the forest. From here, this trail climbs along the edge of the forest to the Metschmaad 6-seater chairlift, which is just a few metres from the Iglu Bar and is easily accessible on snowshoes. The route is relatively flat on a snow-covered road towards Bühlberg before the descent on the Metsch snowshoe trail leads through remote fields back to the middle station

  • Approach

    Take the Simmentalstrasse to Lenk and continue straight on to the Stand Xpress valley station.

  • The bus takes you comfortably from Lenk railway station to the Stand Xpress valley station and then to the starting point of the tour at the middle station.

  • Free parking is available at the Stand Xpress valley station.

  • This Snowshoe Route is signposted.

  • The tour is signposted. For snowshoe tours, the appropriate equipment and the necessary expertise (avalanche awareness, alpine skills) are mandatory! If you have no experience in assessing the avalanche situation in open terrain, it is better to go on a snowshoe tour with a trained mountain guide.

  • After the ascent, you will find the Iglu Bar near the Metschmaad chairlift, or the Bühlberg restaurant at Bühlberg, just a few minutes from the route.
