Above the upper Rhône valley, as an extension of the Bernese Oberland range, the Wildstrubel is composed of beautiful 3 000 meter peaks from where we can admire amazing surroundings. A ski tourer’s paradise with an endless choice of routes and skiable peaks of all difficulties. The area’s profile allows flexibility in the program, which can easily be adapted to snow conditions and group preferences.
Day 1: After a two-hour drive in our minivan from Chamonix, we arrive in Leukerbad, where we ride up the Gemmi cablecar. From there we ski across the Daubensee lake to the foot of the Dauvenhorn (2941m; 9 700 ft)), and ski up and across to the cross at the summit. The view down Leukerbad, the Rhône valley and the Wallis great 4000 m peaks, Mont Blanc and the Bernese Oberland is just breathtaking! We ski back to the route split and head up to Lammerenhütte mountain hut (2501m; 8 250 ft).
Vertical gain: 900m/2 970ft Vertical drop: 600m/1980ft
Day 2: The Willstrubel range spreads along 3 kilometers at an average altitude. We ski tour up the Wildshtrubegletscher and reach Wildstrubel peak ( 3243 m/ 10 701m). At the top, the view is incredible: the alpine bowls lead to the “Gruyère” right next to the large glacier of Plaine Morte. We ski back to the Gemmi station and ride the cablecar back down to Leukerbad. We drive back to Chamonix in a minivan.
Vertical gain: 800 m/ 2 640ft Vertical drop: 960 m/3 168ft
