Classic in the Gotthard region. Easily accessible, snow-sure, quite avalanche-proof and yet a "full-blown" day hike (WS).

The Stotzigen Firsten hardly attracts any visitors in summer, this long ridge south of the Furka Pass road is too inconspicuous. On the other hand, the summit offers a great view of the wild climbing peaks in the Gotthard region. In winter, the Stotzigen Firsten, together with the Winterhorn, is one of the top destinations around Andermatt. The ascent over the long broad ridge is practically avalanche-proof and easy to master even for persevering beginners. Another advantage of this tour destination is the good accessibility by public transport and the winter-suitable road extension to Realp. However, if you want to enjoy untracked powder on the descent, you'd better get up early!
