The name already makes it clear: This snowshoe tour on the panoramic high plateau between Weisshorn, Prätsch and Litzirüti is not strict - and therefore the ideal introduction to the nature experience of snowshoe hiking. In summer it is one of the highest 18-hole golf courses in Europe. Despite its cosiness, the alpine mountain panorama is a must: As you trudge over treeless sections and through light fir woods, the view of the Arosa mountain world becomes clear again and again. Tjejer Fluh, Hauptij, Brüggerhorn, Weisshorn, Hörnli, Erzhorn, Schafrügg or the highest peak of the Plessur Alps, the Aroser Rothorn, can be seen from here. The area, which is roamed on quiet soles, can be described as one of the most beautiful viewing platforms in Arosa. The trail can be reached comfortably with the free local bus.
