This winter, it’s definitely worth it to book early – the destination Gstaad has introduced a dynamic pricing system. Additionally, the new Eggli cable car brings guests to Gstaad’s local mountain with even more comfort. The panoramic cable car for ten guests is an eye-catcher and offers a very comfortable ride thanks to the new suspension system. „Winding down“ is not only possible by “Ahifahre” in the destination Gstaad, but also on the way up.
Winter sports Highlights
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.
Whiz downhill on your toboggan as you feel the driving snow on your face – if you love tobogganing then Gstaad with its six toboggan runs is the perfect place to be. And there are several mountain restaurants and snow bars along the way where you can relax and take a break.
The longest slope in the Gstaad ski area, a 7.5 km run, begins at La Videmanette. Skiers experience a 1160m altitude difference until they reach the valley. Thanks to the red and blue marked sections, even less experienced skiers can ski down parts of this slope.
Gastronomic Highlight: Mountain Restaurant Wasserngrat
There are a lot of sun terraces to enjoy in the destination Gstaad. However, the view from Wasserngrat almost takes your breath away. On Gstaad’s local mountain with the popular ski slope Tiger Run, the Buchs brothers provide a first class cuisine. Regional products are prepared in such a way that even a gourmet’s mouth will water.
Gstaad Gourmet Mobil: great culinary experiences on the Eggli
In winter 2019/20 the snowcat-mounted Gstaad Gourmet Mobil invites guests to enjoy a truly exceptional atmosphere. The pop-up restaurant at the mountain station of new Eggli ropeway offers a unique culinary experience, complete with panoramic views. On set dates, various top chefs will delight fans of winter sports and culinary connoisseurs with delicious specialities.
Insider Tip in the St. Stephan Ski Area
At the gateway to the Gstaad ski world lies the restaurant Chemistube at 1400 meters in St. Stephan. The kitchen creates regional specialties of exceptional culinary quality. The cozy and rustic atmosphere and the wonderful panoramic view make this mountain restaurant the absolute insider’s tip in the ski area.
Booking early pays off!
Buying tickets early is worth it for everyone! Thanks to the moderate dynamic pricing system, no one has to wait in line any longer and the tickets are often even cheaper. In comparison to the previous fixed price of CHF 65, a day ticket now costs up to 25% less and a maximum of 14% more in the future. The prices are based on, for example, when the ticket is booked and on what days it is valid.
New Eggli Gondola
With Style and Comfort up the Mountain
Beginning December 2019 in the destination Gstaad, there will be one more cable car with the Porsche design for all snow sports enthusiasts. On the ride up the local mountain Eggli, guests will experience a unique ride comfort thanks to the new suspension system and spacious interior. The new transportation system will be the first panoramic cable car for ten people in the «Design by Porsche Design Studio» and will be a definite eye-catcher.
