Both winter hiking and snowshoeing offer a different perspective on winter in Meransen. Yet, what is the difference between the two winter sports? Winter hiking means to walk along groomed hiking paths, while snowshoeing entails moving freely in open terrain with snowshoes. The shoes specifically designed to walk on deep snow may at first glance look like a tennis racket, yet they allow you to leave your
tracks in untouched snow fields without sinking in. Follow in the tracks left by animals in the snow and stumble onto the most beautiful views not even postcards could match. We have snowshoes and hiking poles to rent for you for free. You may also like to get yourself some crossblades. These make for an extra rush of adrenaline as you cruise down into the valley of Meransen: try them out now!
