After the starting point of this hike in Zweisimmen / Sparenmoos the route leads in a loop over 7 kilometers. The well-marked path starts at the Berghotel Sparenmoos and leads first in a small loop to the mountain hut front Hüsliber. Then follows the path of a longer route to the so-called Nüjeberg / Ufem Hubel.

The Zweisimmen ski resort hosts a number of winter sports events, including snowgames and a cross-country ski race. In January, the venue hosts a terrific freestyle festival.

A family-friendly and cozy ski area

With its snow kindergarten, its ski school and its many easy pistes Zweisimmen is an ideal family travel destination. Especially for families, there are in Zweisimmen the 5500m2 "Snow Kids Village Stoss", a teaching and discovery park for children. Located a bit off the pistes, the park allows children to learn winter sports and enjoy themselves in complete safety. The park is equipped with a beginner's lift, a snow carousel and a playground.

Accompanied by Snowli, the snow mascot, the children playfully learn to ski. The park is located on the Rinderberg, 970 m altitude and is easily accessible by car or on foot. The entrance to the park is free, but the small winter sports are not supervised by ski instructors. Parents can stay with their children or keep an eye on them from the nearby Snowli Café.

Winter sports for everyone - cross-country skiing, cross-country skiing and sledging

A cross-country ski run spreads over 13 kilometers, starting in Zweisimmen and leading to the gates of the neighboring Adelboden-Lenk ski area. For winter sports fans worth the "SuperPass" here. This special ski pass offers winter sports fans a true winter sports paradise spanning three areas: Gstaad Mountain Rides, Alpes Vaudoises and Adelboden-Lenk, with a total of 630 kilometers of skiing.

On the Rinderberg, the home mountain of Zweisimmen, there is a permanent ski cross piste. From the starting point of the piste, below the Chäli, it leads down to the middle station Eggweid, over a length of 520 m and a difference in altitude of 100 m. It is an easy downhill run suitable for experienced skiers as well as for beginners and children. There are mountain restaurants at the start and end of the piste.

The area Sparenmoos, located above Zweisimmen, is located in the heart of a fairytale landscape with opportunities for cross-country skiing, winter hiking and tobogganing. A toboggan run connects Sparenmoos with Zweisimmen. It is divided into two sections with a total length of 6.5 km. The first part of the piste covers a distance of 4km. From Berghotel Sparenmoos, it leads to the neighboring village Heimchueweid. This relatively easy downhill run is well suited for beginners. At a length of 2.5 km, the second, somewhat more demanding part of Heimchueweid leads down to Zweisimmen, through the forest to the bus stop Obegg. The complete sledge piste runs over a total of 700 meters in altitude. In the evening, the route to Heimchueweid is illuminated and thus allows sledging fun until late at night.
