Breithorn can be rated as the lightest 4000 in the Alps. In any case, thanks to the support of the Klein Matterhorn cable car, which transports ski mountaineers up to 3880 m. From the cable car station (beautiful viewpoint) to the glacier plain below the summit, which can be often reached on skis. In good conditions, it is worthwhile to continue to the Schwarztor saddle and drive descent back to Zermatt. The second variant of the freeride is the descent from the Unterer Theodulgletscher. This descent is simply great up to Seehöre 2400.

The height profile indicates the slope of the hill. If you mouse over the curve, you will see the slope for this concrete position on the hill, which is also represented by a red drop on the map. The vertical color zones under the curve (see explanations above the profile) inform the slope which has impact on avalanche danger.

Important warning: The information and data provided on Skitour.Guru has been compiled with great care. The use of all information is at your own risk. Personal experience and knowledge of a current state of slope are very important in addition to generally useful informations for the risk assessment. Itineraries of ski tours may vary from the ones mentioned above depending on the current snow conditions or terrain changes (eg glacier). Careful planning and assessment of the avalanche danger for specific slopes before each ski tour is crucial. The pictograms in the tour map mark the usual key points. In general, GPS device is a helpful friend, but in the end, it is always the person, who decides over the route line in the terrain. The height profile shows us the slope. The cited duration data are indicated, rather intended for slower ski tourers and include the movement time without pauses.
