Passo Scimfuss

The road to Passo Scimfuss, a chillout in high mountains

Passo Scimfuss is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.242m (7,355ft) above the sea level, located in the district of Leventina in the canton of Ticino in Switzerland.

The road to the summit, also known as Passo Scipscius, is mostly paved, with some gravel parts. It’s steep and very narrow, with some hairpin bends. Access to the pass (which is neither signed nor geographically distinct) is typically open all year round, with the occasional closure in winters due to dangerous weather conditions.

The road to the summit is steep, hitting a 9.0% through some of the ramps. Starting from Passo del San Gottardo/St. Gotthard-Pass, the ascent is 3.7 km (2.29 miles) long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 148 meters. The average percentage is 4%. The drive offers some really good views over the Valle Bedretto and the surrounding mountain ranges.
