Heli-Skitour Alphubel 4206m

Inquire Booking

This option is definitely the most convenient way to climb the Alphubel. It has the particular advantage of being flexible when lifts and huts are not yet open or have already closed. We fly with the helicopter from Zermatt to the Alphubeljoch 3836m.

From there we climb 400 meters through the steep east couloir with numerous kickturns to the summit. The impressive descent of 2,400 meters over the Fee Glacier to Saas Fee is one of the most beautiful ones in the region.

Best time:  March - May
