Freeriding at Schilthorn in the heart of Switzerland

Last weekend we got a change to visit the Schilthorn-Mürren area. We got pretty much perfect conditions to explore this freeriders' mecca. We found endless possibilities for easy lift accessed freeride with nicely formed playful lines. Just with little hiking you have a playground for your own. Don't tell anybody ;-) Truly a special place!

Magic! 
Special thanks for Sascha, Rolf and Stefan for guiding us around. And warm thanks for Hotel Eiger for accommodating us. For anybody visiting Mürren I would  highly recommend the Hotel Eiger!
