Free Touring Andermatt Guides

Discover the wild side of the Gemsstock! Starting from 3000m we ski off the backside of the Gemsstock and begin ski touring from there. On the first day we take the time to learn ski touring skills, and of course enjoy some great descents. The second day we plan a longer more advanced tour. The goal: Finding the best descents with short ascents! Great for split boarders too!
