Snowline map  

While at higher altitudes there is at best already snow, the trails in the valley are still free of snow. Our interactive snow depth map helps you to plan your tour. Here you can see at a glance at www.flims.com/schneesituation where you can already expect snow on the paths and trails and where you can still be on the road without getting cold feet.

Der Name "Kulinarik-Trail" weckt Ansprüche - was uns im Restaurant Conn serviert wurde, war diesbezüglich eine pure Enttäuschung
