Ski area Aletsch Arena

Ski area Aletsch Arena

The Aletsch Arena is a very high-altitude ski area and is therefore exceedingly reliable for snow. The multifaceted ski area ensures that families, as well as pros who like a challenge, are well taken care of in the Aletsch Arena.

With two lift connections take you directly from Mörel-Filet to the Aletsch Arena ski area, which offers a total of 104 km of slopes for winter sports fans. In the car-free resort of Riederalp, skiers and snowboards will find mainly blue and red pistes. Especially for beginners, this allows for the opportunity to swap from a red piste to a blue piste, or vice versa.

If you go up higher, you will land in the resort of Bettmeralp. From here you can take the lift to the popular mountain station of Bettmerhorn (2,647 m), where skiers can enjoy a breathtaking view of of the Aletsch Glacier. At the Bettmerhorn there is also the opportunity to ski through a tunnel slope, which leads to a demanding black piste. Another challenge is the run from Eggishorn to the resort of Fiescheralp – a black and steep piste.

If you take the valley run down to Fiesch during the main season, you can secure a few extra hours skiing. The lift pass is not just valid during the day, but also in the evenings for the ski area's night skiing slope located here.

Of course there are also slopes in the Aletsch Arena where kids – sometimes on skis for the first time – have the possibility to practice skiing. If you are trying out skiing for the first time, families with children should head to the children and family lift Blätz, located on a few minutes away from Fiesch. The resort is a popular meeting place for families.

Also well recommended are the numerous, professionally led ski tours in the Valasi UNESCO World Heritage site. Through these, you will experience a very special side of the mountain scenery of the Aletsch Arena for a day, a weekend or even a whole week.

Night skiing Mörel-Filet

Skies and snowboards do not necessarily need be placed in the corner when the sun is setting in the Aletsch Arena. Every Tuesday at Riederalp, Bettmeralp and in the Fieschertal you have the possibility to enjoy the slopes under floodlight. And the best thing is: all you need is your Aletsch Arena lift pass.

Après ski Mörel-Filet

In Mörel-Filet the possibilities for après ski are pretty cosy. Most restaurants in the idyllic village of the Aletsch Arena offer traditional dishes. If you want to finish off your skiing day in a bar or disco, you should stay for a night on the mountain in the car-free holiday villages of Riederalp, Bettmeralp and Fiescheralp.

Nature lovers will find numerous winter hiking trails and snowshoe tours in the Aletsch Arena. During the professionally guided tours, winter holidaymakers can expect breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Those who prefer to discover the world from above can also opt for a tandem flight. During the flight, you can experience just how impressive this UNESCO World Heritage site is. Toboggan fans should head over to Fiescheralp or Moosfluh after a day on the slopes. From Fiescheralp to Lax there is a well-prepared 13 km long run with spectacular panoramic views of the Valais mountains. From Moosfluh there is also a beautiful 5 km long stretch, which leads along the Blausee lake and the Gopplerlücke.

In the Aletsch Arena ski area, winter sports enthusiasts can also practice another attractive sport: Fatbiking. With the wide tires of these special bikes, you can ride down snow-covered trails. This challenging sport is a popular alternative to the other winter sports activities and offers the chance to enjoy the winter landscape in a special way.

The area has also thought of tobogganing fans. In Saas-Fee there is a 900 m long toboggan run which is open all year round. This attraction makes every toboggan er's heart beat faster. With a lift that pulls the tobogganers up the mountain with a gradient of 55%, you can get to the starting point of the run and then head back down again with a rapid descent of up to 40 km/h.

The Salina Maris spa centre in Mörel-Filet also offers spa lovers a great opportunity. The spa centre offers a thermal salt water bath, a sauna, a steam bath, massages and therapies, among other things.

Snowpark: Mörel-Filet

Want to freestyle? The Aletsch Arena is the right place for you. With many kickers and rail lines, Bettmeralp is a hotspot for all freestylers. The park is equipped with special equipment so that extreme jumps can be performed under perfect conditions. There are also two fun parks in Fiesch-Eggishorn. In addition to a family fun slope for beginners, there are steep face curves, hills, bumps and moguls.
