Freeride Jungfrau Region

Improve your technique and boost your confidence off-piste with a qualified guide who knows the ins and outs of the region. This 2-day freeriding course will treat you to powder as far as the eye can see and prepare you for safe and fun freeriding all winter long.

Tour Details

  • Fitness Level: Sporty
  • Experience Level: Competent

You have previous freeriding experience. You master parallel turns on and off-piste. On the second day you will need to be prepared for slightly steeper runs, however we won’t ski any extreme couloirs or slopes. When snow conditions are optimal, we will use piste skis, otherwise we might hike for up to 1.5 hours with touring gear. No previous ski touring experience is needed.

Day 1: Freeriding in Grindelwald

Meet your instructor in Grindelwald and check your equipment. Depending on the conditions, you will head towards the First ski area (south side) or to the shady slopes below the mighty Eiger north face- either way, there are no bad options here. Glistening snow, alpine views, and fresh mountain air will deliver the right atmosphere for a great day of freeriding.

Day 2: In the footsteps of James Bond..

Today you will visit locations that were featured in an earlier Bond film. At the Schlithorn, you will have several options for freeriding, and will experience terrain a bit steeper than the previous day. You’ll finish in either Mürren or Gimmelwald, depending on which run appears best to finish the day.

 

Please remember that freeriding requires flexibility… We can’t control mother nature, and snow conditions are not always optimal. To ensure that you can experience the best powder, we may hike up to 1.5 hours using ski touring equipment to put ourselves in a better position to ski on good snow.

Choose functional clothing that is moisture-wicking and quick-drying. Dress in layers so you can easily react to temperature changes. The range at our shop in Grindelwald is tailored to mountain tours and our expert staff are happy to advise you on the best clothing for your tour or course.

Lunch is not included in the offer. We recommend bringing bars, dried fruits, nuts, or a sandwich. The amount you will need to drink depends on your individual needs and the length of the tour. We recommend .75 -1.5 liters of water, warm tea, isotonic drinks, or whatever you prefer. We also recommend that you hydrate enough the day before, so your body is well prepared for the tour.

Huts

A mountain hut is not a hotel. Running water is not guaranteed and electricity is not available everywhere, so it is not always possible to charge batteries or phones. If you have special dietary needs, please inform us in advance so we can make arrangements with the hut.

Our tours and courses are led by IVBV certified mountain guides or mountain guide aspirants. We prioritise your safety by requiring regular training to ensure our guides have relevant, up to date knowledge.
