The start of the Jörisgletscher round tour is at Tschuggen in the Flüela Valley. Follow the pass road, which is closed to motor vehicles, until just before the Rossboden. From there you climb up to 2,349 m. From there the route heads east under point 2,507 and east of the mountain range with point 2,712 rather steeply into the Winterlücke and further on to the saddle south-east of point 2,940 m. The first ascent is completed. Now it is time for the beautiful descent over the Jörigletscher to the Jöriseen. From there the route goes up to Wäschuchi (ridge gap south of point 2'771). This is followed by the second descent through the Müllersch Tälli to the Flüela Pass road and on to Tschuggen.
Safety informationAnyone 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
Tips, hints and linksExpert information and certified mountain guides are offered by the Davos Klosters mountain guides.

EquipmentWe 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.
