Three memorial paths and an avalanche documentation center with video and image material today commemorate the avalanche disaster of 1954.
Three memorial paths and the avalanche documentation in Hüggen and in the community center in Blons commemorate the avalanche disaster in January 1954 and document the reconstruction and the protective measures that were taken. At the starting point there is a detailed info folder with trail descriptions, but if you really want to learn about avalanches, you should hire a guide.
Starting point for all three trails: Blons (avalanche documentation center in the community center)
Leusorg trail: 6 km, approx. 2 – 3 hours, 260 meters altitude difference
Leads along the rebuilt farms to the avalanche memorial at the cemetery.
Schutzwald-Weg (protective forest trail): 4 km, approx. 2 1/2 hours, 250 m altitude difference
Shows how and where reforestation was done to protect against further avalanches.
Verbauungs-Weg (avalanche barrier trail): 3,5 – 4 km (depending on the route), about 2 1/2 hours, 250 vertical meters
Leads to the places where the catastrophe of that time was triggered and shows mechanical shoring such as snow bridges and sliding snow blocks.
BERGAktiv offers guided hikes along the Leusorg and Verbauungsweg trails.
