Betelberg Lenk family paradise

Fun in the snow for young and old

The bijou Betelberg ski resort is family-friendly and famed for its wide and open pistes, which are perfectly suited to families with children and for beginners. Non-skiers can also expect a variety of activities on offer: three toboggan runs and several winter walking trails, as well as cosy snow bars to relax in. Fans of cross-country skiing will also find what they’re looking for with the Haslerberg–Betelberg high-altitude trail. 

Travel comfortably by train to Lenk. The gondola lift will then take you up the Betelberg.
