The Brunnistock is a popular, classy little skiing mountain. The summit rises up steeply along the eastern edge of the wide Blüemlisalp snowfield, which is an ideal surface for ski tours. Please take care on the snow cornice at the summit as this looks harmless but is actually quite dangerous. The end of the ridge summit, around 80 metres from the cairn, is a great place for views down into the Reuss valley. Take time to enjoy these before heading off down through the powder snow!
Safety tips for off-piste skiing
Please note that you are skiing at your own risk!
It is essential to carefully plan a skitour. Base your planning on maps, and make sure you listen to the avalanche warning service and the weather report.
The safety equipment and clothing are essential safety factors.
Anyone skiing off piste needs avalanche equipment (avalanche search equipment, probe, avalanche shovel, First Aid kit)
The skiing and mountain guides are familiar with the spots and terrain and ensure that you safely reach your summit and then back home.
