Freeride in Val d'Anniviers

Val d'Anniviers, surrounded by some of the highest peaks of the Alps, offers great offpiste terrain. In this beautiful valley, the best runs are reached by using your skins. Thanks to this you can find good skiing even days after the last snow fall. Also "powder stress" doesn't seem to exist here. Often you have to deal in this valley with an old snow avalanche pattern due to its dry clima. But thanks to the huge snow dumps in January 2018, things are different now!

Early winter powder

After a really good winter start in November we experienced a snowy December in the Swiss Alps. Great about December offpiste skiing are the facts, that sunny slopes stay powdery and you don't have to share the snow that much. January also brought lots of snow, but unfortunately it was often windy and we had to deal with a high snow fall level. So chasing for the best snow was not always easy.
