Alp-Style Macaroni & Cheese high above the Schächen Valley

The sunny terrace of the Biel-Kinzig ski area above the Schächen Valley invites you to some nice winter walking, as there are many cleared and tended walking and snow-shoe trails.

If you don't want to tramp uphill to Wiltschi from the Biel cable car station, you can start by taking the cleared road toward Ratzi and then turning left toward Ruogig/Eggberge just after the base of the chair lift.

Otherwise the snow-covered summer trail goes straight up and then to the left near the Edelweiss hotel. In less than an hour you have reached the back of the Selez Valley where there is a lovely family-run alp restaurant with a cozy dining area and also a great view terrace. After the best Alp-style Macaroni & Cheese (secret recipe!) with apple-sauce or pork steaks, you can enjoy a few ZZZ's in the sun in their reclining chairs.

Depending on snow conditions, you can walk on to toward Eggbergen via the little Flesch Lake and from there down through the forest, or to the left up to the Hüenderegg look-out, which is recommended. You get fantastic views all the way South over the Uri Alps and Northwest to Lake Lucerne.

From here a bit of "wading" might be required, or you can walk back down to the Fleschsee junction or even back to the Ruogig cable car station.

**Note: if there has been little snow and warm days, then the surface of the trail can be quite icy.
