Trail details
Description If you want to hike with snowshoes up to the beautiful Blaswald above Ulrichen, start your tour at the former Sust "Zum Loch" at the foot of Nufenen- and Griespass. Passing the small chapel St. Anna zum Loch, the path climbs steeply after the first flat section along the cross-country ski trail. The path zigzags through the snowy mountain forest. The first few metres of altitude difference are quickly covered and offer an impressive view of the mountain village of Ulrichen and the young Rhone Valley.

After the first pre-alps you meet the signpost which marks the descent to Obergesteln. But it is still too early for that. Following the markings, the trail continues to climb up to the landmark wooden cross on Blasenalp. From here you can already see the goal of the tour, the Senntumhitte.

Historical remark: A small ski lift once led across the Blasenalp foothills. At the Senntumhütte you can still see the remains of the pole of the mountain station.
Highlight Pristine natural environment – forest trail – stunning views
