In ear­lier times, the ham­let of Zinal with its typ­i­cal chalets of larch wood, bronzed by the sun, served as a sea­sonal home for the farm­ers of the Val d’Anniviers. For a few weeks each spring, they would base them­selves here with their live­stock before mov­ing up to the high alpine pas­tures for the summer. Today, the pretty Valais vil­lage below the mighty Zinal Glac­ier lives mainly from tourism.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays between November and March, this day trip is led by our guide Stephane Albasini. In fact, the trip can be taken on any day as long as you give plenty of notice.
The group meets at 9.30 in front of Zinal tourist office and returns to the station at 16.00. Make sure you pack a picnic for lunch! Snowshoes are available from the two sports shops in Zinal.
