Big Runs - Freeride in Disentis

Big Runs - Freeride in Disentis

Freeriding in its best! Disentis offers brilliant off piste skiing accessible directly from the ski lift. However we have also the skins with us providing even more the possibilities for cool Runs.
Our "Big Runs" tour corresponds to the modern Freeride: We combine the lifts of the Disentis Skiing area and skinning to access to the best lines. For doing that Disentis is simply ideal: Lots of snow, lots of good terrain to ride and considerably less freeriders than in other areas that quality in the Alps.
In the evening we return to Disentis and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the legendery “Swedish Bar” Nangiala. We use that place also for our lodging.

MEETING POINT: We meet at the ski lift at Disentis at 8:30 on the 1st day. Security check and we start the search for the best lines to ride the area of Disentis.

DAYS 1-4: The ski resort of Disentis has a vast potential for riding off piste. You can access long runs directly from the lift. Nevertheless Disentis has much more to offer, if you go furter than just to the lines that you reach from the lift. During the 4 days we want to exploit the full potential – runs directicly from the lift to valley as well as skinning out of the skiing area and then taking nice lines down.

DEPARTURE: On the fourth day we will say goodbye to about 4pm.
