The best powder south of the Alps and mind-blowing descents.


A sense of freedom, adrenaline, solitude: freeride in Airolo reigns supreme!

A freerider's morning starts early in Airolo: nothing is better than fresh snow! Try setting off from Pesciüm, which you can get to in just 7 minutes by cable car; from there you can enjoy your first off-piste descents of the day, protected by the woods, which will allow you to safely have fun even in poor visibility or bad weather conditions.

A second cable car will then take you even higher: up there, when the sun shines, you can take delight in more open and exhilarating pistes. Thanks to its optimal position, the risk of avalanche in Airolo is often lower than the North of the Alps: that being said, we still recommend you always consult the weather forecast on our website, as well as the latest updates on the state of the slopes.

Avalanche Training Center

Learning how to handle emergency situations while waiting for help can make the difference between a tragedy and a story with a happy ending.

The Avalanche Training Center is open to everyone for free and is only a 10-minute walk from the Pesciüm middle station on the way to Val Bedretto. It is located at the beginning of the N.453 Swiss Mobile Route.
Thanks to the 8 transmitters, different critical situations can be simulated, including searching for avalanche victims that are buried under thick layers of snow. The transmitters come with a reactive surface that automatically responds to the prodding of the probe: whatever is found is transmitted to the control unit which indicates the finding on a screen and confirms it with an acoustic signal. Search times for each transmitter are also indicated and the control unit has an activity counter that can be read at any time.
