Ski vacations Disentis – the idyllic free-rider Mecca!
VorderrheinThe Surselva Valley, as this landscape of the upper Vorderrhein is named in Rhaeto-Romanic, is located between the source of the river Rhine at the Thomasee and the Flimser Forest. It comprises various valleys, e.g. the Valsertal and Lumnezia. Approx. 1,800 hours of sun per annum and very good snow conditions are the best qualifications for a fantastic skiing holiday. This region is especially popular with free riders. The signed ski routes aside the prepared pistes are ideal for experts. But also beginners and families can run wild here, as the prepared pistes mainly consist of easy and intermediate runs.
Disentis is located in the Surselva Valley in the canton of Graubünden, where the Medelser Rhine and the Vorderrhein flow into each other. The cosy, growing resort is situated at 1,150 m altitude, quite a bit away from the pulsating resorts and is known to be the centre of the Rhaetro-Romanic language. The ski area reaches up to nearly 3,000 m and is an insider's tip for free riders and boarders. 60 km of vast, prepared pistes as well as countless deep powder snow descents are a guarantee for lots of diversity. A cultural highlight is a visit to the widely visible monastery, the oldest Benedictine abbey in Switzerland. Also one of the oldest sheep wool processing factories of Switzerland is worth a visit. In the Bündener Highlands you will find many culinary specialties,as for instance Capuns alla tatta, Bizzochels or Maluns, which you must give a try! Extraordinary activities like heliskiing, snowtubing or building Igloos round off a vast offer of leisure time activities.
