Bruno Berthold

is delighted when he can inspire enthusiasm in his guests for snowshoe hiking.

In spite of his 86 years, Bruno Berthold is still to be found at the head of the group. He always moves to the front anyway because he’s a mountain guide and takes people out on snowshoe hikes in winter. He used to climb the summits in summer and ski down them in winter when he was younger. That he now prefers to go hiking in winter is his tribute to his age. And a real stroke of luck for his hiking guests because hardly anyone knows the mountains around the Klostertal as well as Bruno does.

The powder snow glistens. When out on your snowshoes, you’re right in the middle of nature – surrounded by mountain panoramas.

“Hiking on snowshoes,” says the old man with the young eyes, “is not an extreme sport, it’s actually a pastime that anyone can take up.” As a leisure activity it is a fairly recent trend but it’s definitely not a new invention. “It used to be only farmers who had to climb to the mountain meadows on snowshoes in winter to collect the hay that they had stored there.” He has covered his favourite hike through the fascinating ‘moonscape’ to the Muttjöchle countless times. The snowy landscape, the powder snow glistening in the sun, the wonderful silence and wide vistas – that’s pure winter fun for him.
