Night Skiing

Anyone who didn'tlet their hair down on the slopes during the day has ample opportunity to do so at night in the holiday region of Gstaad. The Wispile and Rinderberg offer ski and snowboard enthusiasts winter sports fun late into the evening on floodlit slopes.


After a beautiful winter day enjoy the Après-Ski, relax in a deck chair and warm the hands with a hot drink and to hear good music, all this is possible in the numerous snow bars along the slopes of Gstaad Mountain Rides. Numerous cosy mountain inns with inviting sun terraces, Alpine charm and views of fantastic mountain panoramas increase the feel good factor and thus provide additional highlights in the wonderful diversity of the holiday destination of Gstaad.
