Full moon backcountry ski tour on the secured Grauberg slope from Flims-Dorf up to Segneshütte

What is the "The Moonwalk"?


A popular sports event for everybody: Guests, locals, season staffers, and all other sports enthusiasts in the region. To participate is the main thing, arrival at the top is the goal (no time keeping, no ranking).

 

It is a special experience to be out and about in an alpine surrounding at night. And this is as safe as possible, even in not so favourable conditions (clouds, precipitation, snow conditions, danger danger of avalanches).

 

By the way: Already back in the 1930s, the hoteliers from Flims put on their skis and walked up to Segneshütte after work. The nights at the hut became a legend...

 

The Grauberg slope is especially closed for us, and is monitored by the professionals from the Ski Patrol.
