The tour starts at the Barralhaus and leads to the Alte Spittel building with a short climb. The building constructed by Kaspar Stockalper was originally a hospice. The top three floors were the Stockalper family's summer residence. Below, poor travellers were accommodated and catered free of charge.
The trail then crosses the Gampisch high plateau, which is used for farming during the summer. The track then leads to the Barralhaus, which attracts the attention of visitors with its dimensions of 7x120 meters. It was built by Pastor Pierre Barral as a holiday home for his students. However, Barral went bankrupt before the building was completed. Today, the Barralhaus belongs to the army but is no longer used.
The cross-country ski run is not prepared every day. Up-to-date information on the condition of the cross-country ski run can be obtained from Brig Simplon Tourism.
