Description

Andermatt and Disentis are two amazing freeride skiing spots in the Swiss Alps. Both of them offer the best ski lifts to reach up to the top of their highest mountains.

During this 3-day freeride skiing tour we’ll be based in a hotel in the cozy village of Andermatt. We’ll enjoy 1500 meters of vertical runs in the best mountain of the area: the Gemsstock.

Nätschen, another perfect skiing spot in Andermatt, will give us the option of reaching the Oberalp Pass by train. It’s a short 10-minute ride. Once in here, the Oberalp-Sedrun Lift System awaits. We will discover a great freeride skiing area with snow of high quality and perfect slopes.

Here most of the runs are way more gentle and open tan on the other side of the pass. Also, safe lines are easier to find in this area.  It offers amazing skiing, specially on days with high-avalanche danger or on snowy days.

Of course, at least one day we must go to Disentis. It has a peak, Piz Ault, with runs of over 3000 meters. Besides, Val Strem or Val Acletta guarantee vertical drops of more than 2000 meters.

There is a last spot that requires a 1-hour hike but it’s considered the best freeride run of the Alps. It is the Stalden Glacier with a vertical drop of 2400 meters!

This freeride skiing trip was designed for experienced skiers with good off-piste skiing technique in all type of snow. Besides, you need to be in good shape, as we will climb on skins for up to 1 hour, or maybe more in rare cases, depending on the conditions at that time.

Book your place now, next departure date is January 30th 2018! Contact me as soon as possible and we will start planning this freeride adventure together.

I also offer a great guided freeride skiing tour in Lotschental, and an amazing freeride traverse from Chamonix to Courmayeur. You should check them out!
