Skitour to the Tochuhorn

Ski Tour

Tour description


Simplonpass – Starting on the Simplon Pass at 2,005 m, head west over the plateau at the hamlet Hopsche into the traverse on the southern slope of the Tochuhorn. Then turn northwest and continue to climb (in zigzag) the valley between Tochuhorn and Straffelgrat. You will reach the summit on a steep path over the broad east ridge.


Simplonpass – The descent is via the ascent route. This may vary depending on the risk assessment.

Bielti / Simplonpass – Alternatively and only if the conditions are good and safe a different descent route is possible. At the location of the traverse below the Tochuhorn you may ski down to the Bielti. This will require an ascent (approx. 30 minutes) back onto the Simplonpass at the end of the tour.
