THE BACKCOUNTRY EXPERIENCE
Day 1 - Freeride:
Experience powder snow and isolated off-piste under the guidance of a local IFMGA certified mountain guide. The Metro Alpin takes us up to 3200m. Silence surrounds you when you step out onto the Hohlaub glacier. 1600m downhill descent in the secluded grounds of Hinterallalin awaits. But this is not all. The taxi takes you from Saas-Almagell back to the ski resort where more off-piste descents are waiting. Non-stop until the legs burn from freeriding!
Starting time: 8:15 am
Day 2 – Ski tour:
After the exiting runs the day before, day 2 brings you the ascents with skis or split board/snowshoes. Let our mountain guides introduce you to the world of ski touring. After a nice climb, a long and thrilling downhill is your reward.
Starting time: 8:15 am
