mountain wilderness switzerland, founded in 1994, is an Alpine protection organisation, working towards increased respect for the mountain world. We wish to protect the original nature of the mountains and advocate nature-compatible winter sports. We are the mountain party. .
Aims and Campaigns:
• Nature-compatible winter sports – for a respectful approach towards nature. By developing rules of behaviour for a respectful approach to the mountains, we do all we can to make sure that winter sportsmen and women use the very asset they rely on – the untouched mountain landscapes – in moderation, instead of destroying them.
• Protection of the wilderness and the natural mountain landscape: with our campaign for more peace and quiet in the mountains (ban heliskiing, ban off-road), with our demand for the demolition of unused buildings and with our opposition to further development of new areas of terrain we are campaigning for an intact mountain world. .
• we inform, sensitize and intercede
• we work out measures which lead to solutions
• we support environmental education
• we support exemplary contractors
• we observe developments in the outdoor area and make critical comments where they go against protection objectives or the ethical principles of nature-friendly winter sports.
In the mountains you can experience real wilderness – hiking, climbing or on skis or snowboards. mountain wilderness switzerland offers you specific tours, tips and a collection of important links to tours, so that you can travel around in the mountains safely and in harmony with nature.
On request, we can offer other net participants advice, give a presentation and provide up to date information and contacts in the field of our work.
