Leaving the hectic pace behind and experiencing the untouched winter landscape above Arosa - the Füchsli Snow Shoe Trail is perfect for this. It first leads through the forest along the cross-country ski trails and then beyond the forest line. Again and again on the way a unique view opens up over the elongated Schanfigg valley and the mountain landscape of Arosa. On the cosy Prätschalp, one of the first fixed points of the tour, about a third of the tour has been completed: in the warm season around 100 cows are summered here by farmers from Chur. In winter, the Prätschalp offers a break and refreshment.
The snowshoe walker feels like on the "roof of the world" on the next part of the hike, which leads over the Scheidegg via Rot Tritt.
The last part of the trail invites you to enjoy it again: gently downhill it leads you back to Maran, where the free local bus picks you up again.
Tip: Why not do the snowshoe hike on a clear full moon night? When the moon turns the snow under your feet into a sparkling carpet, this is an indescribable experience.
