Winter

… for ski and snowboard tourers

Swooshing down the slopes is simply wonderful! However, more and more winter sports enthusiasts are drawn to the idea of walking uphill first.

Ski touring on Spiga-slope Nr. 1

On Flumserberg, skiers and snowboarders can use the prepared and signposted Spiga-slope Nr. 1 - Thursday to Saturday even at night.

Ski touring on the slope during the day

Daytime ski tours are only allowed on Spiga-slope Nr. 1 between Tannenheim, Spiga and Prodkamm. All of the other pistes will be closed to ski tourers by day and night. The ascents must be made in succession at the side of the piste. Attention must be paid to skiing operations, which will have priority.

The offer for daytime ski tours on the piste is valid from the opening of Spiga-slope Nr. 1 until the closing of the Spiga piste at the end of the relevant winter season. Piste Nr. 1 will be closed from Sunday to Wednesday from 17.00 until 08.00 o'clock.

Ski touring on the piste at night

In general, all of the pistes on the Flumserberg are closed from 17.00 o'clock onwards for winch preparation. Mortal dangerexists here!

Piste Nr. 1 from Tannenheim via Spiga to Prodkamm is open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays until 21.00 o'clock and it can be accessed and skied by tourers. The last guests are asked to leave via piste Nr. 1 at 21.00 o'clock. All of the other pistes will be closed for grooming from 17.00 o'clock and they must not be walked on or skied on. Piste Nr. 1 will also be closed to ski tourers in the evening outside these special times.

Rules
  • Ascents and descents are at your own risk and responsibility
  • Ascents only on Spiga-slope Nr. 1, at the side of the piste and in succession
  • No crossing in blind spots
  • Take special care on crests, narrow pipes and steep slopes
  • It is essential that you abide by the piste instructions and those issued by the rescue services.
  • Ascent and descent at night with headlamp switched on
  • Only use freshly groomed  slopes in the edge areas
REASONS AND DANGERS
  • Very high risk of injury exists if the rules are ignored
  • Piste preparation often takes place using cables, which are not always visible
  • The cable buries itself in the snow and soars upwards when pulled
  • Frozen lanes in freshly prepared slopes can become an accident trap the next day
  • Protecting wildlife
