Ascent Trip Report

This is a rather dull walk up a ski area maintenance road. We wanted to start at the end of Gstaad Road, but a sign there warned that the area behind it was closed to uphill hiking. We didn’t know if this applied outside of ski season, but to be safe, we headed back into the neighborhood, parked at the end of Zermatt Road, and took a trail from there. This brought us out to the bottom of a chairlift with no warning sign. On the way down we were targeting a particular geocache, and after grabbing it we decided to just plow straight down the hill.
