A demanding ski tour to the Ferdenrothorn against a uniquely beautiful wintery backdrop.
From Ferden, climb towards the Kummenalp before continuing on towards the Ferden Pass. The route then rises somewhat more steeply, following the edge of the ridge. You can keep your skis on until around 50 metres below the summit and then, depending on snow conditions, use crampons and picks to work your way along the remainder of the ridge. The Ferdenrothorn is a striking and unique mountain, particularly when seen from the Lötschental Valley. Its eastern and north-eastern faces are folded in waves, making the mountain unmistakeable. Soak in the wonderful view over the Lötschental Valley.
