White Magic Trail (Nr. 143)
This snowshoe hike can be quite a challenge, depending on snow conditions. The route leads 741 vertical metres down the mountain. But walkers’ efforts are well rewarded: the view over the village of Zermatt is magical.

At first the trail leads over the pastures of Alp Hermetji before entering sparse woodland, where chamois may be seen, depending on time of day. In winter, these mammals have a thick, shaggy coat. Hikers who sit down for a while and remain still may well spot one, although chamois do not move about a great deal in winter. Pink poles mark the route approx. every 100 m Chance to observe wildlife along the way Guided tours bookable through the Zermatters
