best season

All snowshoe trails on the Axalp start at the Axalp/Sportbahnen bus stop. Behind the Axalp Stübli restaurant, the snowshoe trail follows the famous summer “woodcarving trail”, which in winter is covered with a deep layer of snow. A little caution is advised along the “Gausband” ridge. Otherwise, the track runs through untouched forests and over glittering snow fields to the mystical Hinterburgseeli. The same easy track will take you back to the start of the trail on the Axalp.
