Degree T2

Degree of difficulty

When it comes to sporting activities in the mountains, various difficulty scales have been established. These indications are given according to the discipline (snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, mountain hiking, mountaineering or climbing) and provide information on the characteristics and conditions of the terrain.

At Les Celliers de Sion, our outdoor activities take place on a signposted route through the heart of our Clavau vineyard, whose degree of difficulty is T2.

Degree T2

Degrees of difficulty for hiking activity in Switzerland range from from T1 to T6. Level T2 is a course of moderate difficulty.

The paths and trails on the T2 route are continuously marked out. The terrain can sometimes besteep or rocky, which is why we use trekking boots are recommended.

The terrain is signposted to FSTP standards if it contains white red and white indications, as found on our signs along the route in the Clavau vineyards.
