Endorphin rush on the mountain

Take a deep breath and head off. Momentum happens automatically, with powder snow flying up on both sides. It’s like you’re surfing. No, even better: it’s like floating. The slight hint of fear before you headed off? Forgotten. A glimpse back at the freshly skied line in the deep snow. Overwhelming happiness. That’s how it feels on a freeriding descent.

Which of us has never seen the daring videos on YouTube where freeriders ski down pristine, untouched slopes? It is perhaps the dream of everyone who has been infected by the ski virus. One thought begins to nag: “I want to do that too.” That’s how the desire to ski just as freely off-piste – and become a skiing hero – begins for many skiers. Here’s your opportunity: try freeriding.

Freeriden in Davos Klosters

3 Bahnentour - Davos Klosters, Arosa/Lenzerheide, Tschiertschen

Still want more? Then why not tackle the 3 Bahnentour? It gives Freeriders access to an unforgettable day-long tour. Tickets are available at the valley station of the Parsenn funicular in Davos or at the Gotschna funicular railway in Klosters for CHF 88 per person.

First head from Davos or Klosters up to the summit of the Weissfluh where the powder fun starts with a steep descent to Sapün. This route became originally known by Sherlock Holmes’ inventor Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. We recommend taking a short coffee break in the Heimeli. Hint: whilst you’re drinking your coffee, check the train connection to Langwies, as the train ticket to Arosa (RhB 2nd class) is included in your ticket. Follow the groomed track from Sapün (note the shared use of the track). From Langwies, take the Hörnli Express directly to Arosa. This is where the well-known ski safari starts with an unsecured descent from the Hörnli, past the snow-clad Lake Urdensee and the myth-enshrouded Geisterhang. The trail continues past the Urdenalphütte lodge on to Löser and to the Clüs, from where the slope leads directly to Tschiertschen. Take the two chairlifts and the draglift up to the Jochalp. The last unsecured descent leads to Parpan via the Schwarzwalk forest and the Ausserberg and Innerberg where the freeride tour ends. A ski bus, included in your ticket, takes you on to Lenzerheide. The post bus (important: not included in your ticket) transports freeriders safely back to Davos Klosters.

Personal responsibility & guided tours

With the 3 Bahnen tour you are off the controlled slopes and act on your own responsibility. The mountain railways company do not accept any liability. We recommend that you bring appropriate equipment with you and book a guide. Please be sure to respect the game reserves during the tour. Tip: The Davos Klosters mountain guides offer the tour every Monday in their winter programme (in German).

Five tips
for freeriding


Safety first: Be sure to follow the avalanche bulletin

As tempting as the white splendour is, it can also be deadly. Therefore, plan your freeride tour carefully in advance and consult the current avalanche bulletin. Because the terrain off the slopes is neither marked nor protected from alpine dangers.

guided tours and guide

Snowboarders and skiers must expect an avalanche off-piste at all times. The mountain railway company is not liable for the associated risks. So be on the safe side and register for a guided tour with a guide. Tip: Every Tuesday and Thursday the Davos Klosters mountain guides offer a ski touring trial course on Pischa.

Pischa is one of the largest and sunniest freeride areas in Switzerland. Freeriding takes place on Pischa in untouched terrain. No slopes are marked, groomed or protected from alpine dangers. A paradise for original skiing.

  • Wildlife areas & wildlife reserves

    The unexpected appearance of a freerider can be problematic for wild animals in winter: an escape costs a lot of energy, which is then lacking to survive. Four simple rules help.

    Freeriders are happy about a lot of fresh snow. For wild animals, on the other hand, this means one thing above all else: a naked fight for survival. Because what deer, deer, chamois and ibex normally scrape out of the snow to eat is now under a thick blanket of snow. Wild animals are therefore forced to use their energy sparingly. If they are disturbed and forced to flee, their survival is at risk.

    4 rules while being out there

    • Respect designated wildlife areas and wildlife reserves
    • Stay on paths and marked trails in the forest
    • Avoid forest edges and snow-free surfaces
    • Keep your dog on a lead, particularly in the forest
