I keep you warm. I make sure you do not slip. I like being stored in a warm place. I hate being left in a damp cold corner. Nice weather is okay with me but what I really like is stormy and snowy weather. Snow is my greatest pleasure. I do not mind mud. Take me outside every day! Use me to step on solid ice. Jump into the powdery snow. Just do not throw me in a corner. Moving me does never harm you. What I like will be fun for you, too. Put me on and go out into nature. I am your winter boots.

Goms – the true winter hiking paradise: 86 kilometres of marked winter hiking trails, accessible almost entirely by the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway (MGB)
