Already a few metres after the start the timber line is crossed. On the entire tour a fascinating sight can be enjoyed: from Grison and Glarus to Liechtenstein and Austrian Alps. Thanks to the height it is assured, that the Alpine landscape can be for sure experienced in wonderful white – and that the snowshoes are not packed for nothing.
The restaurant Laufböden is ideal for a break with its view to the mountain landscape Tectonic Arena Sardona. With this name the Glarus thrust has been included into the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here it is clearly visible, how the rock strata have been ridging and folding during the formation of the Alps. A chairlift leads back to Pardiel.
Snowshoes can be rented on site: Rental Shop Mullis, Bergstation Pardiel, 7310 Bad Ragaz
