Skitour in Arolla

SWITZERLAND | Today we went to Arolla for a ski tour and also to see if the cascades are already there! But nope, it’s dry and not a lot of ice has been built. We went from Arolla to the Col de la Forclette. It’s around 1000m and around 4,5 km. It was -13 degrees…

Skitouring in Crans Montana

SWITZERLAND | It was snowing the whole weekend and the ski resort is still closed, it couldn’t be better! We skinned 1100m up till Bella Lui and had the perfect first powder of the season! It’s the first layer of snow this winter, so you risk to hit the stones, but it was perfect! Fluffy…

Mini Skitour in Zermatt

SWITZERLAND | The matterhorn – that mountain has a special place in my heart. I love to see this panorama, I feel so blessed and free when I’m there! We tried a little ski tour, the first day till Blauherd and the second day we made it till the Rothorn. Perfect for the beginning of…

First skitour of the season

SWITZERLAND | Today was the very first day of skiing. I was nervous eventhough we had nothing too extraordinary planned. The packing for the tour was already difficult, I couldn’t find my stuff and I couldn’t remember what you actually need. In addition, I wasn’t sure what to wear because I was freezing since a…

Skitouring Castor

SWITZERLAND | We went today high up to the Klein Matterhorn for skitouring. There is still a lot of snow up there! We did the Castor and the weather was beautiful this morning. No clouds, no wind, nice and warm. Unfortunately this changed pretty quickly and we couldn’t see anything on the summit. The weather…

Skitouring Jungfraujoch-Fieschersattel-Lötschenlücke

SWITZERLAND | What a weekend! Saturday evening we went to Grindelwald to the hotel Alpenblick and stayed there over night. Jürg the owner is such a cool and lovely guy, I highly recommend staying at his place. I have never been on the Jungfraujoch before and I absolutely wanted to see it! It is amazing, so impressive…

Skitouring Lauchneralp

SWITZERLAND | We went to Lauchneralp for a short ski tour. Pretty quickly we realized that it was already way too hot (the snow was already soft at 10 o’clock), which made the danger of wet avalanches higher. I walked in a t-shirt and in slow motion, I hate it when it is this hot….

Strahlhorn

SWITZERLAND | Today we went from the Britannia hut up to the Strahlhorn. We did it in 5 hours and were very proud (because we were literally walking in slow motion). Weather was again perfect with no wind at all!! Today I felt better, because we started so early in the morning, before it was…

Alphubel III

SWITZERLAND | We went to the Alphubel on Friday with perfect weather conditions. The weather was stable and supposed to stay like that for the next three days. It was the third time for me to do the Alphubel, but the first time for Carlo. I always struggle with the altitude because you start straight…

Skitouring in St. Luc

SWITZERLAND | This wednesday was the only sunny day the whole week and I was craving a bluebird sky. I can really get mood in bad weather and I hate when it stays like that for a week. So I went to St. Luc to go to the Forcletta, which is perfect in those snow…

Skitouring to the Pfulwa

SWITZERLAND | How I adore those days!! It was bright sunshine even though it was cloudy announced, but then bäm – an awesome day! We did a small Skitour in Zermatt. But this place is so magical,that everything is spectacular. Where: Zermatt Don’t miss: Go and have lunch at Findlerhof. Best location with very nice…

Splitboarding in Crans-Montana

SWITZERLAND | It’s always scary to start something new. It was Nora’s very first splitboard tour. We did the Randopark in Crans-Montana which starts in Aminona and end at the Vache Noire. It’s the perfect first tour, because it’s safe and easy. The whole trail is indicated and well prepared. This is usually our bad…

Gemmi Skitouring

SWITZERLAND | My first skitour after one month of intense yoga was on the Gemmi. The place itself is already spectacular! It perfect for walking with snowshoes or skitouring. It’s the boarder to the bernese Alps. You have so many options there, but the all start in the flat and long Gemmi. 😊 Where: Gemmi,…

Skitour to the Signalhorn

SWITZERLAND | Another beautiful sunny day! It started with the plan to go to the Wildhorn, but unfortunately the road was closed due to avalanche risk. So we quickly changed our plan and went to Eischoll. From the parking lot to the Signalhorn it’s 1700 m difference in altitude 😳 Where: Eischoll, Valais What: beautiful…

Pointe de Tourtemagne

SWITZERLAND | We went to Val d’Anniviers to do the Pointe de Tourtemagne. Somehow I saw it on the map and I didn’t think it would be so spectacular. The surrounding from the hotel Weisshorn is amazing! It was very hot at lunch time, so I basically moved in slow motion.  Where: St. Luc, walk up…

Skitouring to Pigne d’Arolla

SWITZERLAND | What a weekend! We decided to do the Pigne d’Arolla in two days (because I’m freaking slow) and it was amazing!  We slept in the Cabane des Vignettes, which is only partially open during winter. But there is gas and wood so you can comfortably spend the night there. Where: Arolla,the walk up…

My favorite kind of fridays

SWITZERLAND | A day off spend in the mountains is the biggest gift for me! I feel so alive out there. Especially we people I love, how I crave days like this!! Where: Eischoll,we skinned 900m up and then skied for a few hours. The resort is tiny and super cute 😍 What: It’s not…

A hyperactive weekend

SWITZERLAND | This weekend was a hyperactive super sporty weekend. I’m so sore! Saturday we went to Vercorin for a 1000m training (with girls it’s more chatting all the way up ☺ ), then we went indoor climbing for a few hours. On Sunday we did a little training again to go up to Anzère and then…

Mont Noble

SWITZERLAND | After the big rain in lower areas we decided to go ski touring somewhere easy peasy in the forest. Since I have never been in Nax we went there for a skinning session! You start in the shadow in the forest and follow the way up, there is even a sign to Mont…

Ski touring 🎿 to the Wildstrubel

SWITZERLAND | What a day!! One thing one my bucket list is already done! Going to the Wildstrubel, I wouldn’t have thought it is possible so early in the season, but the conditions were perfect! Where: Montana – Plaine Morte, then either go up and down the same way or go down to the Gemmi…
