Good cross-country skiing opportunities

About 18 km of well-groomed routes with an interesting route are available for cross-country fans in Saanenmöser and the surrounding area. Divided into three sections of varying degrees of difficulty, there are a total of 10.3 km of classic cross-country ski routes and 7.4 km of skating pistes. For cross-country beginners, there are two laps of 2 km each, with dogs allowed on one side. Starting from the train station in Saanenmöser, both routes follow the railroad pistes one kilometer long in the direction of Schönried, before returning in a large loop to the starting point.

For good cross-country skiers, there is a challenging, red, 4.6 km long route (classic and skating) between Schönried and Saanenmöser, with a vertical drop of 65 m. Very good cross-country skiers will be delighted by the 3 km long, black route that leads from Schönried down to Saanenmöser, Horneggli and the Wittere plateau. Over a height difference of 100m in total this route crosses magnificent alpine landscapes and is ideal for well-trained cross-country skiers.

On the Wittere plateau, the magnificent panoramic views of the Simmental and the neighboring villages invite you to rest and relax. Then the route continues down to its final destination, the railway station of Saanenmöser. This route can also be used in the opposite direction, along the railway pistes to the station of Schönried.

A paradise for snowboarders and winter hikers

The "Snowpark Gstaad" located on the Hornberg offers snowboarders and freeriders, beginners and advanced, three areas with 27 elements: i.a. jumps, wallride, spine, rails, tubes and boxes. The huge air cushion, Big Airbag, in Saanenwald allows freestylers to safely try acrobatic figures. The use of the Big Airbag is free and is allowed from the age of 12 . Freestylers that are not tired can also participate in nightly actions (night sessions).

Saanenmöser offers its guests a winter sports attraction that is unique in the Bernese Oberland: the Funslope. Located near the "Snowpark Gstaad", the Funslope includes various elements (bridges, tunnels, snails) that guarantee fun on every downhill. On the Saanerlochsgrat, the igloo village of Saanenmöser invites winter tourists to memorable moments in real snowmaking sessions. In addition, Saanenmöser has a sled piste and a natural ice rink.
