Planning Ski and Freeriding Tours

Hier you can find helpful information for your tour in Disentis Sedrun.

Route planning

Use the information from the avalanche bulletin and the weather forecast to plan your tour well. If you keep your eyes open in the backcountry and are able to refrain from taking on a tempting but risky slope when necessary, you will put yourself and others in less danger. Being considerate of flora and fauna is also part of the rules of conduct for backcountry skiers. Avalanche knowledge and familiarity with appropriate behaviour in high-Alpine areas are required for planning the right route.


Apart from well-maintained touring gear, you also need to take along special avalanche equipment. An avalanche shovel, avalanche transceiver device, avalanche probe or a ski-pole probe should always be included as standard gear.

Powder only - safety first!

You are solely responsible for yourself and your actions. Therefore, we ask that you do not leave the marked pistes without the necessary safety equipment (avalanche transceiver, shovel, ABS balloon, probe). As the ski area has many different levels of exposure and the conditions are constantly changing, caution should be exercised at all times. We recommend that you check the SLF avalanche bulletin before setting off. It is updated daily and is shown at the following locations:

  • Valley cable car station, S. Catrina 1225 m
  • Mountain cable car station, Caischavedra 1860 m
  • Mountain restaurant Lai Alv 2505 m
