Two Lift Wonder at the Simplon pass
Rothwald is situated at the de Simplon pass on an altitude of 1750 meters. Time stood still here, not only in the village, but also in the ski area. There are two drag lifts. The first one takes you to the center of the area. From here you have a vertical drop of 450 meters for wonderfull forest skiing. The second drag lift brings you even to a higher altitude. From here you find great opportunities for tour skiing. Mäderlicka, Hohturo, Bortelhorn and Wasulicka are famous summits and the views on the surroundings are outstanding. Ask the ski patrol for possibilities. They are willing to help you. A true diamond !
Rothwald is situated just under the top of the Simplon pass on the border of the northern and the southern Alps. The north alpine ridge prevents snow to fall here from the north. A powerful Genua low however brings snow from time to time. Check the weatherstation of the SLF. The best snow arrives from the west when the weather fronts move from Wallis to Ober Wallis. The fronts are trapped in the narrow valley and are forced to leave their snow in Rothwald.
With bad weather
The first drag lift of Rothwald has a track through a fine forest. In bad weather conditions you’d better stay here. Check the road conditions up front. Stormy weather can spoil your day too.
