Ski touring under the moonlight

You will meet your guide at our shop in Grindelwald and then drive up to Oberer Gletscher. We will park the minibus and begin our moonlit ski tour from there. You start off on mellow hills, and occasionally use the ski piste to make progress more easily. At the Stepfi Hut you will take a break and admire the views of the mighty Wetterhorn illuminated by the full moon. After the break you will continue climbing until you reach the summit of Chiemattenhubel at 2028m on the watershed between the Grindelwald and Rosenlaui valleys. A powdery descent will lead you back to the Stepfi Hut, and from there you will follow the piste back to the minibus.
