Hi Snow-walkies,

Due to stormy winds expected in higher elevations, especially in the San Bernardino region, with extreme wind chill factor, we will change our destination: lower elevation, different valley. It will still be chilly, but winds not as strong.

We will take the self-service cablecar from Arvigo to Braggio, and walk up from there. Please notice, at the beginning, there might be not much snow, so be prepared to carry your snowshoes for a while.

Important:
Parking: on the main road, about 300m AFTER the funivia station.
Meeting point: In Braggio, near the small store (coffee) left of the station. Please do not wait in Arvigo. As soon as you arrive, take cable car up to Braggio. Better to have coins (4.- CHF on way up, and again on way down).

Difficulty: WT2 (on a scale from Protected content
Distance: 6.7km
