Inquire Booking

Ready for a good challenge? Are you acclimatized, physically fit and experienced in ski touring, then take a closer look at the Alphubel.
Real alpinism, roped up to your Saas-Fee Guide, you will pass along deep crevasses up to a steep couloir. After several kick turns on ski crampons we will reach the top. The Alphubel is one of the most difficult ski tours in the valley of Saas. You will be rewarded with 2400 meter fall line skiing to the village of Saas Fee. After the ski lifts in Saas-Fee close we still can do this tour starting from the Britannia hut.
