Conclusion:

The ski tour on the Stotzigen Firsten is indeed an often overcrowded and popular ski tour in the Realp area. However, it is also by far one of the best and most beautiful tours for beginners and splitboarders in the Realp area.

Thanks to the low avalanche danger, the tour can be undertaken also in bad weather or when the avalanche report does not predict anything good, without huge worries.
