The descent from the Chörbschorn (2,650 m above sea level) to the 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!

Start from the Strelapass (up to here with the cable cars). From the top station of the top lift westwards to the Steintälli. Passing the Strelasee to the east and along the summer path to Latschüelfurgga. Continue along the summer path. To the west you bypass the NW slopes of the Wannengrat and reach the saddle (point 2'451). Now follow the northeast ridge to the summit of the Chörbschhorn.

The descent over the south ridge past the Chörbschhorn hut. Then over the long ridge to Stafelalp and from there through the forest to Davos Frauenkirch.


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.
