Even though you won’t be alone on a sunny winter weekend, the snowshoe hike from the Toggenburg to Amden is always joyful. Especially on a winter day like this, where deep powder and blue sky complement each other. There are many ways from Toggenburg to Amden or Arvenbüel; this is my favorite:

Starting in Stein we walked along the street towards Stigen. At P. 910 we put the snowshoes on, then instead of taking the normal route up to Stigenrain we crossed the Dürrenbach over to Luchli and walked up to Häderenberg via Weiden and Stofel (where one usually skis down from Vorder Höhi).

Afterwards we followed the ridge to Vorem Platt, Chaltgräben and Vorder Höhi, from where we took the normal route up the east ridge to Gulmen. For our way down we chose the ski route down to Amden Vorderdorf via Hüttlisboden. 

Stein – Luchli - Stofel - Häderenberg – Vorem Platt – Chaltgräben - Vorder Höhi - Gulmen - Hüttlisboden - Amden Vorderdorf - Amden
