Skiing in Zweisimmen
The ski resort «Gstaad Mountain Rides», which extends from Zweisimmen through to Schönried to Gstaad, offers 250 kms of slope fun (with a snow park). The village of Zweisimmen is a cozy and picturesque village where winter sports enthusiasts will feel right at home. One of the advantages the village has to offer is the cable car, which leaves from the city centre straight to the top of the Rinderberg. Skiing from village to village is possible in many variations and in addition the numerous (mountain) restaurants provide plenty of opportunity for delight.
The Montreux – Berner Oberland – Bahn (train) line links Zweisimmen with the valley stations of the ski lifts of the skiing arena of Gstaad Mountain Rides. The nearby mountain-plateau Sparenmoos provides 38 km of cross-country trails and is also the starting point of the 7 km long sledge course, which leads down to Zweisimmen. Numerous winter walking trails provide for further diversity, so that hikers also get their money’s worth.
For several years now, the Rinderberg has an illuminated slope from the middle station down to the valley, offering a truly unique experience. Usually, depending on snow conditions, the track is open once a week, in the evening. The cable car is admissible for a small fee. For a small fee you may use them. An experience in itself.
