The mountain railways & cableways of the Destination Gstaad are ideally equipped to comply with COVID-19 safeguards. The majority of the cable cars and chair lifts at the destination allow fewer than 10 people to travel at a time. This is the case for instance with the ultra-modern 10-person gondola lifts in the Saanersloch and Eggli ski areas. 70% of the lifts, chairlifts and uplifts have direct access to fresh air.

Skiing & Snowboarding

The Destination Gstaad offers winter enthusiasts varied experiences in several ski areas. Anyone who wants a glacial feeling can enjoy it on the Glacier 3000. Fans of ski arenas will find plenty of space on the Rinderberg, Lengebrand, Saanerslochgrat, Hornberg and Horneggli. For epicures it takes one’s leave to visit the region Eggli-La Videmanette. The Tiger Run, the legendary steepest ski slope, is on the Wasserngrat.

Buying tickets early is worth it for everyone! Thanks to the flexible prices, no one has to wait in line any longer and the tickets are often even cheaper. The prices are based on, for example, when the ticket is booked and on what days it is valid.

Night Skiing

Anyone who didn't let their hair down on the slopes during the day has the opportunity to do so at night in the Destination Gstaad. The Rinderberg offers ski and snowboard enthusiasts winter sports fun late into the evening on floodlit slopes.

In winter 2020/21 the night skiing doesn't take place due to Covid-19.


In the several culinary stops spread across the entire destination, you feel far away from large crowds. 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 Destination. After a beautiful winter day enjoy the sun set, warm the hands with a hot drink and hear good music, all this is possible in the numerous snow bars along the slopes.

Learning Parks

Learning parks are practice slopes for children and beginners. Professional supervisors look after both young and not-so-young skiers on the learning parks. Ask for more information from the ski schools directly.
