The new state-of-the-art Saanersloch cable car will soon be up and running. Not only will it transport visitors in greater comfort to the ski area and up into the airy heights, but it is also a world first. The glass panoramic roof construction is the first of its kind anywhere. Now you can get to the ski slopes even quicker and more conveniently, and in greater comfort too, thanks to D-Line.

Winter sports activities on the Saanersloch


The Area Saanersloch lies at the very heart of the Destination's largest ski arena. 105 kilometres of ski runs connect Saanenmöser to Zweisimmen and Schönried. The Saanersloch area is particularly popular with families and ski enthusiasts, thanks to its extensive network of blue and red runs and its many restaurants, cosy mountain lodges and ski bars.


The more than 11 km of new and beautifully-groomed toboggan slopes between Saanersloch and Horneggli are an experience for all the family.
