By signing up on this activity, the participants agree that the organiser will not be held responsible in any way.

Our hiking route will be Schwägalp – Tierwis – Säntis. At Tierwis, 2085m, there is a basic rustic restaurant, which appears to be there for hikers only.
This trail is designated by the Swiss Hiking Federation as a "mountain hiking trail". The advice given by the Swiss Hiking Federation for such a trail is as follows (quotation taken from the map):
"Users must be sure-footed, have a good head for heights, be in good physical condition and have mountain experience. Shoes must be solid and slip-resistant."
Cancellation: Adverse weather conditions can make a mountain hike very dangerous, and the weather forecast can be changing all the time. So a cancellation even at very short notice is possible.
