Tour details
The Laucherenstock is a beautiful, popular north slope tour with a wonderful view.
The elongated elevation, which protrudes only slightly from the Ruchstock-Sättelistock connecting ridge, is easy to climb on skis. The rubble of the steep ascent is interrupted by a transverse depression under the summit structure. Once you reach the top, you can enjoy a wonderful view before taking the descent in the snow-covered landscape under your feet.
