Hiking trails in general
Most of the hiking and mountain trails in Obergoms are still snow-covered above 2000 m. For this reason, markings and signals may still be hidden under the snow or may not yet have been installed. Great care must be taken when crossing snow fields and avalanche cones. We recommend good equipment, hiking poles, hiking maps or detailed hiking documentation for the hike.
The considerable amount of snow last winter has left its mark. Those responsible for the hiking trails are trying to repair the network of hiking trails as well and as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding!
Sincerely, your Obergoms
