Skiing in Gstaad

200 kilometres of great pistes, nestled in the mountains between 1,000 and 3,000 metres above sea level.

Destination Gstaad is famed for its great ski adventures on varied, idyllic pistes. Charming chalet villages adorn the entry points to the various sub-sections of the ski resort: friendly village ski-lifts, kilometre-long descents and the only glacier ski region in the Bernese Oberland, where winter sports are available from late October until early May.

The RegioExpress Lötschberger will take you from Berne to Zweisimmen in just 80 minutes without having to change trains. Zweisimmen, Sannenmöser, Gstaad or Glacier 3000 - these are just a few of the ski resorts that are part of the Gstaad destination. The 200 kilometres of ski slopes offer the right experience for every skier: Glacier 3000 offers a glacier feeling, while fans of ski arenas will find the Rinderberg, Lengebrand, Saanerslochgrat, Hornberg and Horneggli just right. The Eggli-La Videmanette area is recommended for connoisseurs. The Tiger Run, the steepest slope, is on the Wasserngrat. The ski safari Rinderberg Ronda combines three mountains and valleys without using a piste or cable car twice.

Klangpiste - experience alpine authenticity in the snow as you please

The Klangpiste between the middle and valley stations on the Saanerslochgrat provides even more fun for skiing. On elements such as milk cans and cow bells, skiers can produce sounds to their heart's content. They do not represent typical musical instruments, but create a direct link to life and business on the mountain.
