Introduction course – Your insight into the world of hairpin turns and powder snow

Stotzigen Firsten, Winterhorn, Schafberg or perhaps a ski tour in the Riemenstaldnertal? Uri and the neighboring cantons offer many possibilities for first-class beginner courses. We offer our beginner tours according to the five “Golden Rules” for a successful day on the mountain: sunny location, dream view, snow-safe, avalanche-protected, awesome descent!

What awaits you at one of our beginner courses? First, a basic introduction to the material and the ascent technique, because first of all you have to reach the summit. Then a practical tour with an exciting ascent that will reward you with beautiful views. Finally, a descent in deep snow with addictive potential, because there is nothing better than drawing your own tracks in deep snow!  

Splitboarders are welcome, as the tour does not include steep traverses.

Beginner Skitour Introduction

The view over the mountains of Uri is absolutely brilliant: this is what your first ski tour has to look like! End of the adventure around 16:00.
