Transfer from Zurich to Göschenen, where we join the guide at the hotel, discuss the week ahead and check our equipment.
From Göschenen, a short transfer by taxi takes us higher in the valley, to 1300m. From there we climb to the Voralp refuge at 2130m.
Ascent of Sustenhorn 3500m after passing by Sustenlimi at 3089m. Descent to the Tierbergli refuge at 2800m.
Today is a long one: first up to Tierberglucke (2990m), then a 1000m direct descent on the Triftgletscher. Steep climb to Sacklimi (2660m) with the skis on our packs. Short descent, then a skin up to the Trift refuge at 2520m.
Ascent of Wyssenollen (3400m) then of Dammastock (3630m), the main summit of the massif, then return by the same route.
From the Trift refuge we go up to Undritriftlimi (3080m.) Here we have two options available to us to get to the Albert Heim refuge at 2550m: either via Tiefensattel (3400m) and then with one or two rappels down onto the Tiefengletscher, or to go down directly on the Rhonegletscher to Furkapass then up to the refuge from Tiefenbach (2106m).
Ascent of Lochberg (3070m), then a long and beautiful descent to the starting point towards Göschenen.
Transfer back to the Zurich for your return trip.
