Freeride Andermatt, Ober Geissberg
The descents on the Ober Geissberg border directly on the glacier descent and are among the classic freeride variants on the Gemsstock. After snowfall, they are quickly ridden and tracked flat. Thanks to the very diverse terrain and the countless small variations, the local freerider or mountain guide often finds hidden corners that are less tracked.
If you are looking for the wide, open slopes, you will find such terrain on the beautiful, gently-sloping, northeast-facing slopes above the Luterseeli. If you like it steep, you can ride towards Lutterseeli directly via point 2465 if the conditions allow it. If you are looking for the extreme, you can ride the north-northwest slopes above the Luterseeli and thus find pretty much the steepest terrain that the Gemsstock has to offer. Here, however, it is extremely rare to find traces and whoever looks at these slopes quickly understands why. They are withheld for experts, a fall could have fatal consequences.

Some variants can only be reached if you traverse high up on the Ober Geissberg. To do this, leave the Gurschenfirn and traverse at a height of approx. 2700 to the right until you reach the flat section behind the point 2622m. From here many attractive descents start: open slopes, steep slopes, small cliffs, couloirs or whatever the heart of the freeriders desire.
