The descent from the Chörbschorn to Stafelalp will be familiar to some from summer biking. Just as much fun as in summer with the bike, is the descent over the long back with the skis!

The ski tour starts in Davos Frauenkirch. First it goes past the church Frauenkirch to NW via Matten and then on the alp trail to Stafelalp. Continue along the wide ridge following the summer path north-west to point 2'363. Now either over the prominent ridge to the Chörbschhornhütte or you bypass it to the east. From the hut, follow the south ridge to the summit.

The descent follows the ascent route. First over the south ridge past the Chörbschhornhütte and then over the long ridge to Stafelalp. From Stafelalp back through the forest to Frauenkirch.

In Frauenkirch there are plenty of free parking spaces at the gravel works (Sertigerstrasse 1), right next to the riding stable in the sand.


On the descent, make sure you stop at Stafelalp and stop off at Berghaus Stafelalp.


Anyone who goes off-piste acts exclusively on their own responsibility and is outside the liability area of the cable cars. The yellow marked freeride slopes are secured but not groomed and not controlled. They can only be used when they are open. We recommend checking the open slopes, the SLF avalanche bulletin and the weather forecast. All liability is excluded.

This freeride route is to be understood as a general indication of direction. Depending on the conditions, downhill routes must be judged and adjusted by yourself. No responsibility can be taken for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the information provided.

The practice of freeriding in the open terrain is at your own risk. Every freerider and tourer is strongly advised to prepare thoroughly, plan their routes and obtain up-to-date information on the snow and avalanche situation. Avalanche situation report and snow info:

All liability is declined for accidents resulting from the use of the published information and route details.

In case of doubt, accompaniment by experienced mountain guides is strongly recommended:  


We recommend the avalanche training centre before the start of a tour.

On the Jakobshorn near the Fuxägufer mountain station in Davos, the correct use of the avalanche transceiver (LVS) can be practised under realistic conditions. The training area consists of a 100 x 100m zone in moderately steep terrain, thus creating a realistic avalanche cone. Use of the training area is free of charge. You must bring your own avalanche transceiver and avalanche probe with you.
