Beautiful and popular ski tour from Sertig Dörfli to the Gfroren Horn (2747 m. a.s.l.) with a challenging descent and a magnificent view into the Sertig valley. Very steep and strong sunshine.

From Sertig Dörfli (1861 m. a.s.l.) follow the Felabach to the NE up to approx. 2100 m. a.s.l., then turn to the SE and climb steeply up the pronounced stream ditch. At about 2260 m. a.s.l. one crosses to the right onto the ridge of the Dörfji-Augstberg. Continue to the small lake (approx. 2470 m. a.s.l.) and over a small ramp north of the rocks of the Gfroren Horn to the final slope. Over this steeply to the E ridge. Via this ridge on foot to the summit. The descent then leads along the ascent route back to Sertig Dörfli.

Note: The avalanche danger from the steep slopes of the Tällihorn must not be underestimated, especially due to the strong sunlight.

Author’s recommendation

After the tour, be sure to stop at the restaurant Zum Bergführer and enjoy the local delicacies.

Safety information

Those who go off-piste act exclusively on their own responsibility and are outside the liability of the mountain railroads. The yellow marked freeride slopes are secured but not prepared and not controlled. They can only be used when they are open. We recommend you to check the open slopes, the SLF avalanche bulletin and the weather forecast. Any liability is excluded.

This freeride route is to be understood as a general indication of direction. Depending on the conditions, downhill routes must be assessed and adjusted by yourself. For the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the information can not be guaranteed.

The practice of freeriding in open terrain is at your own risk. All freeriders and tourers are strongly advised to make thorough preparations, plan their routes and obtain the latest information on the snow and avalanche situation. Avalanche situation report and snow information: www.slf.ch 

No liability is accepted for accidents resulting from the use of the published information and route details.
