This ski tour is suited for beginners and skiing pleasure-seekers. However, it has to do with a prestigious form of this sport: skiing away from the prepared slopes and far away from the pistes. Therefore, a mastery of parallel ski turns in every type of snow is a precondition.
The climb from Fluhalp (2,616 m) to Pfulwe (3,314 m) lasts about two hours. Once at Pfulwe, one has a panoramic view of some of the most impressive four thousand-metre peaks in the Alps: Allalin and Rimpfischhorn, Monte Rosa Massif, Matterhorn, Dent Blanche all the way to the Weisshorn. The effort climbing was worth it, because there is now a downhill run with a drop of about 1,100 metres through powder snow to (2,214 m) and then further down until one is at Täsch. From there, one can take a taxi or the shuttle train back to Zermatt.
We recommend a guided tour a with mountain guide who knows well the place. Further information and mountain guide agency: www.zermatters.ch
Crampons, climbing harnesses and helmets can be rented in different sport shops in the village.
Important! Requirement: parallel turns in all types of snow, good physical condition
