We start on the Oberalp Pass at the lighthouse, a copy of the former lower fire of Hoek van Holland. It has been standing here since 2010 and symbolizes the connection between the source and the mouth of the Rhine.

We don't have to worry about creating a good ascent track, usually someone has already pre-groomed it. And we are not traveling alone! With the sun on our faces, we ascend in a southerly direction to the Crete, where we change from the north to the south side. Here there are a few meters of descent, which we master with the skins under the skis. After that, there are still a few hairpin bends to the summit.

We have decided to descend over Lake Toma, which is why we are now going down a few meters of altitude again. You never know if you should leave the skins on or not! Because in good conditions, the ridge to the Fil da Tuma can be mastered with skis. Otherwise, wearing is announced. After this airy passage we swing down to the snow-covered Lake Toma, a special experience if you know the place from the summer. Where the water leaves the lake, our descent continues, to the plain Plidutscha and on to Chamut.

Option 1: Departure on the east side via Nurschalas Grondas to Alp Milez

Option 2: Departure on the west side via Pazolaälpetli to Nätschen and Andermatt


The water of the young Rhine leaves the lake through a steep gully that runs down to Plidiutscha. This is passable in good conditions and an absolute insider tip. Yelp!


On the valley run to Tschamut, switch to the valley floor, because the galleries on the pass road above Tschamut no longer exist.


Safety equipment required


From the Oberalp Pass in a southerly direction to the Crete, and then from the south side to the summit. Continue south over the ridge to Fil da Tuma. Departure to Lake Toma and down to Plidutscha.From Alp MIlez you can drive on the pass route to Tschamut or you stay on the right side of the valley and drive along the Rhine to Tschamut. This gives a small ascent of about 10 minutes.
