undreds of metres above the Simplon tunnel, the car-free resort of Rosswald with its stunning views is only accessible by gondola from Ried-Brig. Although it is high and generally snow-sure, there is now artificial snow-making on all but the highest slopes. The pistes are not extensive and are dominated by black runs. However the resort is good for winter walking, snowshoe walking and tobogganing.
