This snowshoe tour on the Spieser (1649 m) offers us lots of sun and a fantastic panorama from the summit. We move on predominantly south-facing slopes with a moderate gradient. Orientation up to the large wooden cross near the Hirschalpe is completely unproblematic, as we are on the farm track. From the Hirschalpe onwards, it can be a little more difficult to find the way to the summit of the Spieser if visibility is poor and there are no tracks. The Hirschalpe is usually open from Christmas onwards and offers us a cosy place to stop for a break.

Wir haben die Schneeschuhtour mit 2 Kindern (10 und 7) bei Lawinenwarnstufe 1 gemacht und sie war gut machbar. Der Aufstieg auf der Forststraße bis zur Hirschalpe zog sich etwas, aber die Gipfelrunde oben entlohnte uns bei herrlichem Wetter. Auch für die Kinder toll, zumal Gleitschirmflieger über unseren Köpfen starteten. Wunderschöne Aussicht vom Spieser aus.

Keine allzu schwere Tour mit fantastischer Aussicht vom Spiesser. Wir hatten Sonne pur.

Gute Tour mit einfachem Einstieg. Hinter der Hirschalpe sind ein paar anspruchsvollere Passagen, zumindest wenn man selbst spuren muss.
