Information about the off-piste skiing to Theodul Glacier

The descent through Theodul Glacier (Theodule Gletscher) in the Matterhorn Ski Paradise starts from the ski track and it keeps going skirting some crevasses. Traversing on sweet declivities by the side of Mount Piccolo Cervino, the descent keeps going east crossing steeper slopes until it reaches the slope that connects to the glacial "tongues" of glacier Gorner Gletsher.

Once they reach the ravine, the hikers will get the chance to visit some natural ice caves. Following the creek they will reach the bridge over the brook and they will finally go back to the ski tracks that bring to Furi, Zermatt.
