Skiing in Gstaad
Our luxury ski chalets in Gstaad provide access to 200 km of slopes between 1,000 and 3000 metres above sea level. Ideally suited to beginners and intermediates, Gstaad is a traditional resort with pleasantly uncrowded slopes. Although the terrain lacks challenge, the volume of skiing covered by the regional lift pass, including Glacier 3000 at Diablerets, provides good compensation.
Gstaad’s slopes spread across several sectors with the resort’s local slopes, Wispile and Eggli, situated either side of the village. Reached by bus, the largest sector is above Saanenmöser and Schönried and offers varied terrain for adventurous intermediates. There are also three smaller areas - Wispile, Wasserngrat and Rellerli - again connected by free ski bus. Nearby Château d’Oex and Glacier 3000 are also covered by the lift pass, and reached by local bus or shuttle.
Whilst not as convenient for beginners as more purpose-built ski resorts, Gstaad is still a fantastic option for those learning to ski. In fact, 60% of the terrain in Gstaad is graded as easy, with wide open trails to traverse. Gstaad offers plenty of rolling reds and long pistes for intermediate skiers to enjoy, and whilst not the most challenging resort for advanced skiers, Gstaad still has nearly a dozen black runs dotted around the area. There are also some incredible off-piste opportunities on Glacier 3,000.
With over 170 km of cross-country trails, Gstaad is one of the most popular resorts for cross-country skiing in Switzerland. Four valleys, one glacier and the Sparenmoos offer a variety of trails for all levels of cross-country skiers. With magnificent mountain vistas and forests, both classic cross-country skiers and skating enthusiasts will enjoy the beauty of these trails.
