The Madrisa round trip starts in Klosters village. From there, the gondola lift on Madrisa, the new Schaffürggli chairlift and the Madrisa lift are used to reach around 2500m. From the Madrisa ski area you cross eastwards to the Schlappinerjoch (2203m) and then drive north down into the Valzifenztal. Through this valley you reach Gargellen (1420m) in the Montafon (Austria). A chairlift (Schafbergbahn) and a ski lift (Kristallbahn) take you back to an altitude of 2200m. A short descent northwards along the valley run to Gargellen is followed by a 45-minute ascent to the St. Antönier-Joch. Touring equipment is required for this ascent.  

A wonderful descent through the Alpeltitälli to St. Antönien concludes the Madrisa round trip. What is a fantastic 3-day tour in summer can be experienced effortlessly in one day in winter.

After a well-deserved break in one of the cosy restaurants in St. Antönien, Postbuses drive to Küblis. There you can take the Rhaetian Railway back to Klosters Dorf.


Round trip tickets are available directly at the valley station of the Madrisa cable cars in Klosters.


Anyone who goes off the slopes acts exclusively on their own responsibility and is outside the liability area of the mountain railways. The freeride slopes marked in yellow are secured but not groomed and not controlled. They can only be driven on when the vehicle is open. We recommend that you check the open slopes, the SLF avalanche bulletin and the weather forecast. Any liability is excluded.

This freeride route is to be understood as a general direction. Depending on the conditions, departure routes must be assessed and adapted themselves. No guarantee can be given for the correctness, completeness and timeliness of the information.

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

For accidents resulting from the use of the published information and the route information, any liability is rejected.

In case of doubt, the accompaniment of experienced mountain guides is strictly recommended:


We recommend the avalanche training center before departure.

On the Jakobshorn near the Fuxägufer mountain station in Davos, the correct use of the avalanche transceiver (avalanche transceiver) can be practiced under realistic conditions. The training ground consists of a zone of 100 x 100 m in moderately steep terrain and thus represents a realistic avalanche cone. The use of the training ground is free of charge. Your own avalanche transceiver and avalanche probe must be taken along.
