Skiing and snowboarding on the Niederhorn

Small but lovely: the Niederhorn is the place to ski for families.

The ski resort is not too large or complex and it offers plenty of fun for both beginners and experienced skiers and snowboarders. It's also easy to get to by bus and cableway. The funicular railway and cable car comfortably transport winter sports enthusiasts from the shores of Lake Thun, or from Beatenberg, to the ski area located 1,950 metres above sea level. Relax in a ski resort that offers a one-of-a-kind view of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, and of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains.
