This event is sold out, but we have another similar one on 25 February. Here is the link to the event page.

You want to start splitboarding or ski touring and need some introduction on an easy but really nice tour? This tour is specially designed for splitboarders / snowboarders and therefore has no flat parts. Skiers are of course more than welcome to join.

This tour is led by Niki Huwyler, certified winter sport instructor.

What’s the plan?

You meet Niki at Flumserberg, Tannenboden at 09:30 and take the cable car up to Maschgenkamm.

Easy tour with 500-600m ascent. We also find time to look at the avalanche danger assessment in the terrain, for this we apply the reduction method, the single slope assessment and interpret the avalanche bulletin.

Return to Flumserberg, Tannenboden around 15:00.

If you are traveling from Zurich by public transport, we recommend you take the following:
