The focus of this snowshoe trail is the impressive Bonistockfelsen, which offers an imposing view.
After a few metres on the winter footpath, the trail starts behind the Hotel frutt Lodge & Spa. Strap on your snowshoes and tackle the ascent to the Bonistock. The trail takes you steadily upwards along the mountain ridge and offers great views of the Melchsee-Frutt high plateau.

Spurred on by the natural beauty, you reach the highest point of the tour. Enjoy the incomparable panoramic vista. From here you continue past the Bonistock chairlift terminus to Chringen. The challenge posed by the passage over the Chringen depends on the snowdrifts. Having mastered the crossing, you tackle the leisurely descent to Tannalp. Take a break and enjoy the peace and quiet, or fortify yourself in the restaurant for the return leg.

Return alongside the cross-country ski circuit by Lake Tannen and continue below the Bonifelsen to the Panorama Lift. Climb aboard - 40 metres above Lake Melch, the views of the Alps are even more impressive. The walk back to the cableway terminus is not long - soon you will be going home with a head full of memories.
