Highlights

 
  • Ski tour on the truly stunning and epic Fluebrig Massif (2092m)

  • See gorgeous views out over the Lake of Sihl and the Lake of Wagital!

  • Ascend and descend in some of the freshest and best snow possible

 

I will guide you on this truly special day of ski touring, where we will ascend and descend on some of the freshest powder imaginable to the Diethelm summit on Fluebrig in the Schwyz Alps, a marvelous, pretty and exquisite location full of picture-perfect scenery such as tree-lined alpine forests, peaceful and tranquil lakes and some of the best skiing conditions in the country.

Fluebrig is a mountain massif nestled within the Schwyz Alps, and is located close to the village of Unteriberg. Its highest summit is Diethelm (2092m), and this provides sweeping panoramic views over 2 amazing lakes in the valleys below, the Lake of Sihl and the Lake of Wagital.

We meet in the morning at the Siebnen-Wangen train station, and from here we drive to the starting point of the tour, the Lake of Wagital.

We then begin our ascent of Fluebrig, which initially begins at a more leisurely pace, with the landscape and terrain being gentler, before we hit steeper ground entailing several hairpin bends.

We reach the Alp Fluebrig (1589m) shortly after, and then go for the summit of Diethelm, which contains a nice flat bit at the top which allows us to take in and bask in the glorious and special views over the lovely scenery below.

We then begin the descent in earnest, winding our way back down to the lake, with the views and scenery along the way reminiscent of the epic fjords of Norway.

We finish back down at the lake, happy and content at the rewarding journey we have just completed.

This day of ski touring will give you lifelong memories to cherish – book now to grab this unique opportunity!

    Arrival by public transport/car to the train station Siebnen-Wangen.

    From Siebnen-Wangen we will drive to the rear of Lake Wägital. From a distance we can see the mighty massif of the Fluebrig. First it will be leisurely terrain, then suddenly steeper with some hairpin bends as we reach the Alp Fluebrig 1’589m. From there we go up to Diethelm 2’092m. From the ski depot up there we climb over a few steps (chains) and finally flat to the summit cross. The sweeping descent back to Wägitalersee is unique and is similar to the fjords in Norway.
