Blatten–Belalp ski resort
Insider’s tip in Valais: The ski resort is 3,118 metres above sea level and features 60 kilometres of demanding slopes.
An attractive winter hiking trail with breathtaking views leads from the gondola cableway all the way up to the Belalp resort. From there, the trail continues to the Aletschbord viewpoint where the historic Hotel Belalp is located. You’ll then move on to the Tyndall Monument, which offers a fantastic view of the Great Aletsch Glacier. After that, you can either walk back to the Belalp mountain station or dare to make the challenging climb to Hohbiel lake. Then it’s back to the Belalp mountain station by chairlift after a successful hike, followed by a trip on the gondola cableway to Blatten and an easy ride back to Brig with the Postbus.
For the kids
There’s plenty to discover at Hexen-Kinderland, and who knows – you or your kids might even get to see the legendary Belalp Witch.
The Belalp Hexe (Belalp Witch)
During one week in January, everything at the Blatten-Belalp ski resort revolves around the topic of witches. The Belalp Hexe is a one-week event that culminates on Saturday with the Belalp Witches’ Descent. Postbus offers virtually uninterrupted service during the “Witches’ Weekend”. Various other ski races are held before the big Witches’ Descent. There’s also an extensive supporting programme featuring Witches’ Nights and the Hexen-Kinderfest party for children. The Belalp Hexe originates from an old Valais legend. According to the story, a witch supposedly haunted this region in the past.
