Tiermatti cross-country ski trail



7.98 km long
Cross-Country Skiing
The cross-country ski trails in the Diemtigtal lead you through forests, along icy mountain streams and over snow-covered mats on 22 kilometres of classic and skating trails.

The circuit between Grimmialp and Zwischenflüh offers various starting points and lets you put together your own tour as you wish. The Diemtigtaler cross-country trails lead you along mountain streams, through snow-covered forests and over untouched meadows and let you glide weightlessly and rhythmically through the snow.

The Tiermatti trail leads over flat, technically easy terrain. On the one hand, the trail runs along the huge debris cone of the Balmigraben, where the farms of the Thiermatten (now Tiermatti) are located, and on the other hand in the area of a silted-up former lake, the Seebode. It is the sunniest of the three Diemtigtal cross-country ski trails.

The circuit starts at the Geissboden school (Schwenden) and leads over Seeboden in varied loops to Tiermatti. After a short descent, you reach the turnaround point in Staldenmaad before climbing back up towards Grimmialp on a new route. Back in Geissboden, a short extension leads you to Buechi before you finally return to the starting point. Follow the tracked trail and the turquoise signposting.
