In a paradisiacal snowy landscape, the Simplon Pass offers a cross-country ski run prepared for classic skiing as well as skating. The historic pass crossing is also open in winter and an ideal recreational area with great snow guarantee.
The cross-country ski run is situated on the south side of the pass and offers ideal training conditions thanks to its altitude of 1850 m above sea level.
The tour starts at the Barralhaus and leads to the Alte Spittel building with a short climb. The building constructed by Kaspar Stockalper was originally a hospice. The top three floors were the Stockalper family's summer residence. Below, poor travellers were accommodated and catered free of charge.
The trail then crosses the Gampisch high plateau, which is used for farming during the summer. The track then leads to the Barralhaus, which attracts the attention of visitors with its dimensions of 7x120 meters. It was built by Pastor Pierre Barral as a holiday home for his students. However, Barral went bankrupt before the building was completed. Today, the Barralhaus belongs to the army but is no longer used.
