Skiing in the Aletsch Arena

The ski area for families and connoisseurs

Snow-covered mountains, blue skies, warming rays of sunshine and a breathtaking vista of over 40 four-thousand-metre peaks as well as the biggest glacier in the Alps: the ski area at the UNESCO Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch World Heritage Site offers everything a skier’s and snowboarder’s heart desires. The high altitude between 1,845 and 2,869 metres above sea level guarantees perfect winter sports conditions from December to April.

The Aletsch Arena snow groomer drivers really know their stuff – just take a look in the trophy room.

From the chalet straight onto the slopes

Wow, what a sight
