Free Touring Andermatt

Short ascents, long descents (CH) | 2 days

Wide slopes, fresh powder snow and endless turns! We'll combine short ascents with long descents, escape the hustle and bustle in untracked, forgotten valleys and pick the perfect line for you. Andermatt is a mecca for free touring. Using ski lifts, we’ll quickly gain altitude and, thanks to our skins, reach exciting transitions, beautiful peaks and, above all, plenty of untracked powder snow.

Program

Day 1Individual arrival in Andermatt and welcome. After avalanche transceiver/safety training, you will head out towards the Oberalp Pass, Nätschen or the Gemsstock! The guide will decide on a suitable tour depending on conditions.

Day 2Whether from the Oberalp Pass to Piz Cavradi and over dream slopes to Tschamut, from Gemsstock to Rotstock and into the Unteralptal Valley, or even from the classic Pizzo Centrale via Guspis to Hospental - a wider range of options is hard to imagine. And by the end of the day, we're sure to have more descents than ascents behind us. (Distance: 4-6 km; Duration: 2-4 hours; Ascent: 700 vertical meters).
