After leaving the Gstaad ski area for historic Gsteig, this cross-country trail takes you into the valley with the rushing Saane beside you. Its sunny and quiet location with its gentle gradients makes this route especially suitable for enthusiastic skiers.

This cross-country ski run to Gsteig starts in Gstaad, not far from the famous promenade. The route crosses the Saane several times and continues on via Chlösterli to Feutersoey. Various races are held around this area that is located on the debris cone of the Tschärzis stream and you can sense the competitive atmosphere here.

After passing Saali, the cross-country ski trail continues to gently rise as it approaches the edge of the village of Gsteig (1,200 metres above sea level). At the finishing point and also at various places along the route (Chlösterli and Feutersoey) there are bus connections back to Gstaad.

Before returning, however, it is well worthwhile to take a detour into the heritage-protected village of Gsteig in the most south-western corner of the canton of Bern. It is situated in the deeply-cut valley of the Saane River at the Col du Pillon and is surrounded by the Diablerets massif and Sanetsch area. The oldest farmhouse in Gsteig for which a date is known dates back to 1557. Many others were built in the 17th century and are recognisable by their richly decorated and painted facades. The Gothic church and the neighbouring Hotel Bären are therefore among the most frequently photographed typically Swiss locations.
