Ski tour in alpine ambience for all those who enjoy downhill skiing more than downhill skiing in open terrain. Alpine experience (WS) is required for the ascent to the summit.

This ski tour leads on the sunny side of the Lötschen valley to the first peak of the ridge chain between the Lötschen pass and the Jungfrau region. Thanks to the Lauchernalp ski area, there are convenient ascent options and numerous downhill options. This tour leads via the Lütschenpasshütte to the foot of the Hockenhorn. The last two kilometres of the approach to the Lötschenpasshütte and the traverse past the Hockenhorn to the Hockenhorngrat mountain station are usually prepared (information can be found on the homepage of the Lötschenpasshütte). For the ascent of the summit peak, experience in scrambling with crampons is required. This is followed by a long descent on the wide, quiet pistes to Lauchernalp. On the way, you can stop for a bite to eat at the Lötschenpasshütte, which is full of views, or at Lauchernalp after the tour.
