Schwarztor couloir

Schwarztor is a classic ski-tour in the swiss alps.

The ascent is a very long climb, or a very fast ride with the Klein Matterhorn cable car, up to 3883m.

The descent is rather long and begins by crossing the high plateau below the Breithorn, heading towards the schwarztor-pass located in a scenery between two 4000’ers: Pollux and Roca Nero.

A long north-facing glacier\powder descent follows, traversing beautiful crevasses and seracs on the gorner-glacier, eventually passing through the gorner-gorge navigating some more technical terrain down to Furi and back to Zermatt.
