Freeride Andermatt, Felsental
open slopes and playful terrain
The Felsental was probably one of the first off-piste variants to be skied on the Gemsstock and today belongs to the standard inventory of Freeride Andermatt. If you ski down the Sonnenpiste, you will immediately spot the spacious terrain on your left. Wide, gentle slopes invite you to surf. The Felsental is often among the first variants to be tracked after snowfall. The moderately steep terrain usually allows this. Nevertheless, the line has to be carefully chosen so as not to provoke an avalanche. In the lower part, the Felsental becomes more versatile. Small hills, couloirs, short steep steps, ditches and bushes alternate and invite you to play.
There are countless variants in the Felsental: For the left and middle variants, leave the prepared slope on the St. Annafirn and cross out as high as possible to the left. In the past, some of the left-hand variants allowed you to ride down to Hospental. Today these options are restricted due to a wildlife protection zone. It is important to respect this. For the right variant via the Bärenhang, branch off further down to the left from the Sonnenpiste, where you have to climb a few meters. This right variant is particularly worthwhile in combination with the Vorgipfelcouloir. All variants come together at the end and lead back to the valley station on the right side of the striking trench. Depending on the snow tracks, the skis have to be carried a few meters.
