Free Touring Davos

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. Davos 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.

Day 1Individual arrival in Davos and welcome. You’ll receive avalanche transceiver/safety training and then it’s time to go! Parsenn, Strela, Rinerhorn and Jakobshorn, Pischa or Madrisa. The variations are as infinite as the number of ski resorts! The guide will decide on a suitable tour depending on conditions.

Day 2Whether from the Strela Pass to Chröbsch Horn and down to Davos, from Pischahorn through Matjisch Tälli and along the Flüela Pass Road, or perhaps from Madrisa over Schlappinerjoch to Gargellen and back. You'll be spoilt for choice and, by the end, you're sure to have more descents than ascents behind you. (Distance: 4-6 km; Duration: 2-4 hours; Ascent: 700 vertical meters).
