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: We drive through the upper Rhône valley to Goppenstein. From there the train transports our van through the Lötschberg tunnel to Kandersteg.
The Stock lift (1 834m) takes us to reach a large alpine valley. After an easy ski-tour, we arrive to the comfortable Schwarenbach mountain inn ( 2 060m). We spend some time learning or reviewing basic safety ski touring techniques.
Vertical gain: 230 m ± 760 ft
Day 2: Continuing up the valley, we ski across the Daubensee lake to the base of the Daubenhorn (2 941 m). We ski tour up a large slope and arrive to the summit cross. The view over Mt Blanc, the Rhône Valley and Leukerbad, the Wallis 4000m peaks, the Oberland range is overwhelming… We ski down some of the way up. On the flat below, we ski tour to our hut, Lammerenhütte (2 501m)
Vertical gain: 1 000 m ± 3 300 ft / Vertical drop: 640 m ± 2 110 ft
Day 3: Several peaks form the Wildstrubel range, spreading over 3 km, and rising at approximately the same altitude. Following the Wildstrubelgletscher, we ski up and down the Wildstrubel Belvédère ( 3 243m). We enjoy a superb panorama over Gruyère and the large Plaine Morte glacier.
Vertical gain: 750 m ± 2 480 ft / Vertical drop: 750 m ± 2 480 ft
Day 4: First we skin up to the pass and then cruise to the summit of the Roter Tots ( 2 840m). The long and scenic Tälli alpine valley appears just below us. We will soon leave the land of glaciers and moraines for the smooth and relaxing mountain pastures during this long ski run leading to the Stock tram (1 265m).
Vertical gain: 340m ± 1 120 ft / Vertical drop: 1 580 m ± 5 220 ft
