No matter what your ski level is, you will always find terrain that will fit your wildest ski fantasies, all in a perfectly safe manner.
The highly secured Wolli park is the ideal location for beginners. The slope is surrounded by safety nets and equipped with four motorized carpets to facilitate your learning. The flat and easy terrain offers a breathtaking view of the Matterhorn. It is easily accessible to non-skiers where families can meet up and spectate. You can also go for a delicious lunch in the world’s best alpine restaurant chez Vrony that has 13 Gault-Millau points.
Divided into 3 resorts, the newcomer slopes are powered by 3 chairlifts and 1 T-Bar. The wide, flat slopes close to the Matterhorn provide the best playing ground to practice speed control, steepness variation and the quality of turns. You won’t find a more scenic place to go for the first time on snow.
