Ski touring in Fiss

Ski touring: the Schlosshotel winter experience

Clip the skins to your skis, take the first step, and watch the vastness of the mountain unfurl in front of you. This is the beginning of one of the most impressive winter experiences you’ll ever have. Ski touring blends mountain fascination with mindfulness while challenging your fitness in the quiet peace of winter. Everything appears new as you climb the mountain via untouched powder slopes, focusing on yourself and the rhythm that will guide you up to the summit. Once you reach the top and view the world from above, you’ll feel proud of your achievement. Breathe in. Rejoice. And look forward to gliding down through open terrain or along the glistening, groomed piste that takes you back to Fiss.

Winter experience

Piste & Ski tour Urgtal

Ski touring is a challenge that enthrals both beginners and experienced skiers at Schlosshotel Fiss. Opt for a tour along the groomed piste if you’re new to the sport and want to acquire the fundamental techniques of climbing, carving turns, and handling your safety gear. Once you’ve mastered the basics, we recommend venturing out into the Urgtal ski touring experience, which provides a fascinating trip through the high valley with a 1.5-hour ascent.

High alpine ski touring

The Schmugglertour in Switzerland is legendary. Traverse the ski area and prepare for two quick ascents before the breathtaking deep snow slopes open up in front of you. If this 1.5- hour ascent is too easy for you, you will enjoy the ‘On Top’ summit trip. Here you can choose between various high alpine ski routes to the top of the Furgler, Glockspitze, Planskopf, or Hexenkopf mountains. Once you’ve completed the approximately 2.5 hours ascent to one of the four summits, you’ll feel like the queen or king of the mountain. What a feeling!

The right equipment and experience

Safety is a top priority

Get informed about the current avalanche alert level before every single trip and before venturing out into open terrain. Please observe the safety rules at all times and bring appropriate gear. Safety equipment, including probes, transceivers, shovels etc., are provided by the local ski school.
