The Waldegga Trail in Gspon is special for many reasons, including the pure sunshine, enchanting views and all-round relaxation in a snow-capped winter forest. Although above all, it's still possible to hike it when many other snowshoe tours are no longer feasible.

On the Waldegga Trail in Gspon ob Staldenried you’ll follow in the footsteps of football legend Ottmar Hitzfeld, who lent his name to the highest football stadium in Europe, situated at around 2,000m above sea level. This is a fairly steep trail, and is therefore aimed at snowshoe hikers who have experience on similar terrain and are in good physical condition. Once you’ve passed the Waldegga ski lift, the high-altitude hike takes you through a stone pine and larch forest towards Sädolti, with the peaks of the Bietschhorn, Aletschorn and Finsteraarhorn visible in the distance. The trail then continues up to Seewjini, where the forest becomes sparser. Eagle-eyed snowshoe hikers might even catch a glimpse of a wood grouse. Later on you can watch the ski pros tearing down the slopes before heading back down to the football stadium and the cable car station.
