These calendars of activity are published for information only. Outings will be either cancelled, or replaced by new destinations (depending on regulations in Switzerland and neighbouring countries). All nordic skiing weekends are cancelled; replacement activities will be announced in due time on this webpage and via the newsletter. We encourage all those who won’t be able to join SCIG’s outings, to practice activities (nordic skiing, snowshoeing) in small separate groups whilst meeting the measures announced by the Federal Council (maximum of 5 participants, masks, distances).
