The Gorihorn (2,986 metres above sea level) can be reached from Tschuggen on the Flüela Pass road. The almost 3000-metre peak is characterised by a wonderful panorama and a rewarding descent.

From the Tschuggen car park, the ski tour to the Gorihorn starts first along the summer path up the Tschuggenberg. After this rather steeper start, the route now flattens out in a north-westerly direction through the Tschuggentälli. The prominent rocky crags (point 2'751) are then bypassed to the north by the hollow. Through the valley basin further east to the saddle of the Gorihorn. In the steep slope, crampons are often helpful. In the saddle, a ski depot is recommended, so that the summit slope can then be covered on foot.

After the varied ascent you will be rewarded with a wonderful panoramic view. The descent is along the ascent track back to Tschuggen.

Author’s recommendation

After the tour, the Gasthaus zum Tschuggen is an ideal place for reinforcements.

Safety information

Anyone who goes off-piste acts exclusively on their own responsibility and is outside the liability area of the cable cars. The yellow marked freeride slopes are secured but not groomed and not controlled. They can only be used when they are open. We recommend checking the open slopes, the SLF avalanche bulletin and the weather forecast. All liability is excluded.

This freeride route is to be understood as a general indication of direction. Depending on the conditions, downhill routes must be judged and adjusted by yourself. No responsibility can be taken for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the information provided.

The practice of freeriding in the open terrain is at your own risk. Every freerider and tourer is strongly advised to prepare thoroughly, plan their routes and obtain up-to-date information on the snow and avalanche situation. Avalanche situation report and snow info: www.slf.ch

All liability is declined for accidents resulting from the use of the published information and route details.

In case of doubt, accompaniment by experienced mountain guides is strongly recommended: www.bergfuehrer-davosklosters.ch

Equipment

We recommend the avalanche training centre before the start of a tour.

On the Jakobshorn near the Fuxägufer mountain station in Davos, the correct use of the avalanche transceiver (LVS) can be practised under realistic conditions. The training area consists of a 100 x 100m zone in moderately steep terrain, thus creating a realistic avalanche cone. Use of the training area is free of charge. You must bring your own avalanche transceiver and avalanche probe with you.
