Wonderful snowshoe trail from the Wispile mountain station via Chrinepass to Lauenen
If you've had enough of powder snow here, switch back to the winter hiking trail and follow it via Chrinetritt and further down to the Chrine alpine huts. This is where the winter hiking trail to Gsteig and the signposted snowshoe trail to Lauenen separate. This is followed by a short ascent to the Chrine, the well-known transition between Gsteig and Lauenen. This is followed by a wonderful descent through a snow-covered fir forest. In this area, the trail mostly follows the course of the summer hiking trail. In the Brüchli area you leave the forest and enjoy a beautiful panorama of the opposite Lauenehore and Wasserngrat. Further down, at the ski lift mountain station, you leave the quiet winter landscape. At the edge of the ski slope (attention skiers) the trail leads down towards Lauenen. The Hotel Alpenland with its beautiful terrace and the magnificent panorama welcomes you to a well-deserved stop at your destination.
