Scenic Swiss Resort Ski Tours

Enjoy ski mountaineering through Switzerland's legendary peaks in total safety.

FATMAP

Description

The list of famous peaks in Switzerland is quite staggering - the Matterhorn, Jungfrau and Eiger all sit within the country's borders, along with more than half of the Alps' 4000 metre peaks. There are few spots in Switzerland which don't have epic mountain views, and you'll find none of those spots in here!

On these tours you'll get wonderful views across these famous peaks and also be able to enjoy some ski touring without taking the risk of venturing into untamed terrain. Some of the best views in the Alps, legendary mountains and fresh, cold air - what's not to like?!?!

One final thing - resort touring takes place, by definition, in a ski resort. Before doing any of these tours, make sure that you’re allowed to do so at that time. With grooming machines driving around, and resorts entitled to stop tourers using their runs if the rules are ignored, please stick to the restrictions of each resort. We want to be able to keep ski touring next season and all the ones after that - as on every ski day, the goal should always be to “ski tomorrow”!
