    looking for any info on skiing these spots while in a low visibility scenario? Are there good trees up relatively high or is this place a no go during a snowstorm?
    Thanks

    @escjones almost all tree runs at Zinal are wild Schutz protected. Since they built the connection between Zinal and Grimentz almost all tree runs are forbidden. They used wild Schutz as an interchange to make the connection possible. When they catch you you get a fine of SFR 550,00 per person!

    There are still some possibilities above Grimentz.




    May the powder be with you.

    @escjones, when there is enough snow the tree runs in Grimentz aren't that bad. But there are better places to go in that region.
    May the powder be with you.

    @ecsjones I can recommend Evolene in that region if the weather is bad. Real nice.
    Also on the other side of the mountain from Grimentz, you have Vercorin that holds some nice treeruns.
