Off-piste riding gives skiers and snowboarders an unbeatable feeling of freedom. Experience this in Zermatt by ascending and descending some of most beautiful slopes of the region, and by taking it up a notch with a heliskiing expedition.
Off-piste riding is synonymous with higher risks of Alpine hazards, such as crevasses and avalanches. It is essential that you do not venture alone and always hire a local guide to help you navigate through the dangers and advise you regarding the current mountain conditions. Be very honest about your skiing/snowboarding level, and if you have never skied on powder snow before, take an introductory course on freeriding. This is a lot of fun and will enable you to master the practice before being able to enjoy more intense expeditions.
