Red Run: One of the longest runs in Europe!

Les Diablerets, February 7, 2018. The new Red Run at the Glacier 3000 ski area has been attracting lots of winter sports fans every day since its opening last December. The glacier area has not only doubled the amount of large runs, but is also proud to have one of the longest runs in Europe.

Since the official inauguration on December 20, 2017, already more than 2000 skiers and snowboarders have raced down this bombastic new red run. The starting point is the Scex Rouge mountain top station under the Oldenhorn from where the run continues all the way to below the Cabane middle station and afterwards joins the existing Martisberg Run. With its 8 kilometers the Red Run belongs to the longest runs in Europe based on the altitude drop. It is the altitude difference that must be overcome during a run: in this case from 3,000 down to 1,300 meters!

The Red Run was in planning for three years. Construction work began in the summer of 2017, so that the run could be inaugurated before the holidays. This was an important step for Glacier 3000 because this new run expanded the offering and thus attractiveness of the ski area. „It is a wonderful run in the midst of a beautiful panorama. We are glad to be able to ski here and enjoy every moment of it. There are great carving conditions, even for kids. The run is good all day long and is a lot of fun!“ says Vanessa Dyamic, mother of two kids (8 and 10 years old). Tom Olson from England is also thrilled: „A great run! Everyone should try it!“

Also Bernhard Tschannen, CEO Glacier 3000, is very pleased with the season start. „This year we have ideal snow conditions for the best skiing sensations! And we can offer our guests one of the longest runs in Europe based on the altitude drop!“

The glacier ski area offers a total of 25 km of runs, 10 installations and above all pure pleasure for all ski and snowboard enthusiasts! Various events will be taking place throughout the winter season ending on May 6, 2018. Go ahead and already note the on March 24 and 25 or the Red Bull Göndeli on March 30, 2018 in your calendar!
