First-Track – be first on the mountain

Winter Aussicht Sonnenaufgang Aletsch Arena
First-Track offer – Aletsch Arena

Every winter sports enthusiast dreams of being the first person to carve over the freshly prepared white carpet! The Aletsch Arena’s First-Track offer not only makes this possible, but also takes it one step further. That's because the fascinating First-Track experience is combined with another very special event – sunrise from the View Point Eggishorn.

45 to 60 minutes before dawn, you take the cable car up to Eggishorn, where you experience the awakening of a new day. It’s a sensational experience to witness the first rays of sun shoot over the majestic mountains, and then to launch right into the next highlight: the descent over the freshly prepared slope down to Fiescheralp, where a lavish breakfast at Kühboden Alpenlodge fortifies you for a perfect day in the Aletsch Arena. Please note: the first section of the descent is a black category run and therefore only suitable for good skiers.


Olympic Snowboard Champion Patrizia Kummer launched the First-Track offer: “The First-Track experience with sunrise on Eggishorn showed me all over again what an extraordinary place of natural energy the Aletsch Arena is. It is precisely this kind of moment that lets me recharge my batteries for the races.”

With the First-Track offer you are accompanied by an experienced ski patroller! This gives you the opportunity to learn interesting facts about the Aletsch Arena, the Great Aletsch Glacier and the work of a patroller.
