best season

This beautiful snowshoe tour begins on the Jaun Pass and takes you on a circular hike around the Bäderegg. It is suitable for hikers who have had the benefit of some snowshoeing experience.

The marked Jaun Pass trail leads across snow-covered fields and through snow-clad fir forests below and to the south of the Bäderhorn summit. The sight of the distinctively jagged Gastlosen ridges is without parallel. Equally gripping are the views into the lower Simmental and to the Bernese Alps. Since the snowshoe trail crosses areas at risk of avalanches, it may sometimes be closed. The following applies: please observe the trail route markers and check current avalanche warnings before you set off.
