Winter is in full swing and Walter is once again going to run a Sunday Skitour for us.
The Sunday Skitours will involve a little bit more of a physical and technical challenge than the Saturday tours. You will need to have joined us on one of the Saturday Skitours before registering for the Sunday Tour. This is a safety requirement to ensure that the Sunday groups are homogenous enough for the guide to plan larger tours with more ascent and possible more challenging terrain.
The location will be made available to participants on Saturday evening before the tour by the mountain guide. The tour will take place regardless of weather conditions. The tour and location will be adapted to suit the prevailing conditions, but be run under the philosophy of no bad weather with the correct equipment.
The tour will be led by a local UAIGM qualified Mountain Guide. (Walter Gubler)
The tours will have in the region of 1500m of ascent under your own power and have some steeper terrain. You must be able to perform kickturns in steep slopes (~40deg. and descend safely in steep terrain. Ascending 1500m with a pace of about 450m per hour is a prerequisite for participating in this tour.
- Fitness level to ascend 1500m (+/-) at a pace of about 450m per hour
- Ability to ski in steep off-piste terrain
- Ability to do kick turns (Spitzkehren) in steep terrain
- Snowboarders must be with a Splitboard and have a level where all the requirements for skiers are also satisfied.
- You must have attended one of our Saturday skitours and gotten the OK from the guide to participate in one of the Sunday Tours.
The tour will run with between 3 and 6 participants.
The tour location will be provided the evening before the tour and be somewhere within about 2 hours drive from Zurich. For those with no cars, we will try to organise car-pooling.
