Snowshoeing in Switzerland - naturally in Goms, the mountain village

The wind can carry me for kilometres and kilometres. Sometimes I pile up into huge mounts. I get all effusive if you jump in me. I give way when you ride through me. I blur your vision. I get the smallest crevices. If you get a taste, you cannot get enough of me. Try and describe me and words will fail you. I turn forests into fairylands. If you glide across me, I will swallow all your sounds. Slide over me and I will give you joy. Tour skis love me. Give me a visit. I am your powder snow.

Goms – the true winter wonderland: Dozens of marked out and safe snowshoe treks, countless ski tours for pros, aficionados and beginners
