 Disentis - Off Piste Heaven in Switzerland!


 
Disentis is certainly not a classic snowboarding location in Switerland. Snowboarders will look in vain for a terrain park and winter athletes who are keen on groomed terrain are almost just as inexistent. Because in Disentis its all about powder!
 
On a fresh-snow day you don't even have to arrive on the mountain to get that Disentis is a freeride resort as you will already share the gondola up to the resort on 2833m with people who know exactly what awaits them on the mountain. Boarders and skiers alike are excellently equipped with avalanche safety gear like shovel, probes and transceivers. A striking fact is that there are locals among the snowboarders. So if you want to find out about the most breathtaking descents just tag along with the Swiss. The terrain from "Pez Ault" to "Lai Alv" is certainly a freeride dream come true! You have an infinite choice of steeps with some beautiful cornices. However before you venture into ungroomed terrain make sure you check out the avalanche danger or book an experienced mountain guide who knows the region well.
