There are two routes to the cross-country trail from the mountain station of the Riederalp Mitte cable car: either follow the path opposite the station that leads up past an isolated chalet, or head west as far as Hotel Riederhof and take the small road to the right of the hotel. Do your laps in the skating style on this one-kilometre cross-country ski trail, and feast your eyes on the magnificent mountains.

There is no charge for using the Bux cross-country ski trail!

Safety information

Winter sports report   

  • The use of the trails is at your own risk.  
  • Use only marked trails and follow all markings and signs - for your own safety, for the protection of the landscape and in respect of wildlife. 
  • Be considerate towards other cross-country skiers.  
  • Every cross-country skier, especially on downhill runs, must adapt speed and behaviour to his ability and visibility.  
  • In classic running tracks and on the piste for free running technique, you run on the right side of the piste with an appropriate safety distance to the front runner.  
  • If you stop, you step out of the cross-country ski run.  
  • Weather conditions in the mountains can change very quickly and without warning. Appropriate clothing is very important. 

Equipment

We recommend:  

  • Good cross-country skiing material 
  • Weatherproof (waterproof and windproof) warm clothing and headgear 
  • Sunglasses 
  • Good sun protection, even in cloudy weather. UV rays at high altitudes can be very strong, especially in winter.
