Airolo/Bedretto lift-based freeriding

  • December 29, 2013 · 10:00 AM

Anyone up for exploring a bit on the south side of the Gotthard? Airolo is supposed to have some good treeruns and loads of snow. Not sure whether I'll drive or hop on the train, but if I drive I have room for the usual 2 passengers.

    Looks like I just barely missed out on a trip to the place I've been wanting to ride for the last 3 years! Any chance of you guys hitting Bedretto again this season?

      The title is a bit misleading as we actually ended up doing a tour up Hagelstock in canton Uri ;)

      @bernk, it seems that Airolo (or anything else on the south side of the main alp ridge) is a very good call for days with southern weather. Airolo gets insane amounts of snow on that kind of weather. I had problems finding good treeruns when I was there just after christmas tho, but I do know of some other hidden gems in Ticino... Will try and set up a weekend trip sometime this season.

    Hi guys, I'd be up for it too. Just some questions. Am I looking at the right thing here: http://airolo.ch/en/cableway/winter/the-mountain/lifts-and-slopes.html
    ? If so then do you have some secret knowledge about the place opening more lifts tomorrow ;) or do you plan some ski touring?

    On the logistics side I'd need a lift too. I also have a car so if it makes more sense to start from my place and pick you up on the way then we can take my car. Steen, do you still live somewhere close to Triemli? I live close to siemens tram stop so Triemli is on the way. Trond, where could I pick you up should we go with this option? Let me know what do you prefer guys.
