3 Ways to Zeniflue – Classic Freeriding Ski Tour from Weissfluh Peak

Zeniflue is an easy touring peak only a “few minutes” away from the Parsenn ski area.Zeniflue (viewed from East)
The desent on the North side (back side of the picture above) is initally quite steep (see picture below), but often provides virgin powder down to the Barga Huts at Duranna Pass. IMG_2360
PS: If there are many tracks already, you will always find virgin powder West of the normal descent route on the map. The climb back to Duranna Pass is then a bit longer. See pictures from that West descent here.

There are 3 ways to get to Zeniflue (see map below). The longest tour with a 1.5 to 2 hours ascent is via the Weissfluh East Ridge and Haupter Huts, the best (most downhill vs. uphill meters) is via the well known Diretissima descent on the North face of Weissflue peak (leaving the groomed slope after about 200 meters, the entrance is not always easy to find).

The shortest route is via the the very steep couloir dropping to the East from the Weissfluh East Rigde. Not much skiing here until you start the climb to Zeniflue.

Here are a few pictures on the route Weissflue East Ridge – Haupter Huts – Zeniflue – Duranna Pass.
