Ski area Aletsch Arena

Ski area Aletsch Arena

With the "Aletsch Arena" ski pass, you have 104 kilometres of perfectly prepared pistes at altitudes of 1,845 - 2,869 m alongside the mighty Aletsch Glacier at your disposal. From the three ski mountains Riederalp, Bettmeralp and Fiesch-Eggishorn, the largest ice flow in the Alps, with a length of 23 km, can be admired. The three peaks Moosfluh (2,333 m), Bettmerhorn (2,872 m) and Eggishorn (2,926 m) offer you perfectly selected view points. The ski area is very diverse and varied, meaning it can be guaranteed that everyone will get their money's worth. A special advantage for families is that the villages on the sunny plateau are car-free and therefore very family-friendly.

From Riederalp you have several possibilities for entering the ski area. With the chair lift "Hohfluh" or the gondola "Moosfluh", you can reach various lifts and pistes from the stations, which allow you to reach further parts of the ski area and also the mountain station Bettmerhorn. Altogether, the Aletsch Arena offers almost as many easy slopes as it does medium-difficulty slopes, meaning children and beginners don't miss out either. On the Bettmeralp, ski school children meet in the Snowgarden and Kindersonnenland, as well as in the Prinzenland at the Bettmersee. At Kühboden an der Fiescheralp and at Riederalp there are more children's parks for playing and learning. The ski area bears the "Families Welcome" seal of approval, which honours the toddler care and entertainment programme.

Night skiing Riederalp

In Switzerland, numerous ski resorts offer the possibility of night skiing after the lifts actually close. This includes the Aletsch Arena near Riederalp. Night skiers on Bettmeralp probably have the greatest fun. The Blausee chair lift has extended service hours to the mid-station every Tuesday from 16:30 to 21:00. In Alpenrose-Riederalp, two lifts allow for the use of the approximately 500 m long illuminated runway every Tuesday from 19:00 to 21:00. The practice lift in Fieschertal has illuminated slopes every Thursday from 18:00 to 20:00.

Après ski Riederalp

Holidays in the Aletsch region mean pure relaxation! For this, you don't actually need anything else than the great natural surroundings and the fabulous panorama of the Valais mountains. However, there are also a few small bars and restaurants waiting for more active winter sports enthusiasts. In order to experience the glacial mountain scenery even more intensively, guided ski tours are offered. If you prefer to discover the enchanting winter landscape at your own pace, simply follow the marked snowshoe trails that lead through the Fiescher Valley and along a 3 km long route between Bettmeralp and Riederalp.

Tobogganing is also great fun in the Aletsch region. A real highlight awaits you at the Fiescheralp. A 14 km long toboggan run leads down a well-prepared path to Lax, the neighbouring village to Fiesch. A sports bus takes the tobogganists back to Fiesch in a few minutes. Another tobogganing speciality can be found at the Moosfluh gondola lift. After the lifts close, you can go down the blue runway with an airboard. The "Schlittelpiste Blätz" run in the Fieschertal is ideal for younger tobogganers. If the weather is not so good, the Sport-Ferienresort Fiesch offers a variety of sports activities, such as swimming, indoor climbing, tennis, squash, bowling, fitness or sauna.

Snowpark: Riederalp

On the slopes of the Bettmerhorn between the red Kanzel piste and the blue Salzgäb piste, a rail line and multiple kicker lines are waiting for freestylers. For really big jumps, a wide half-pipe can be found further down the mountain side. The obstacles are shaped with the special device call the "PipeMagician", so that 360 degree rotations and strong inclines can done successfully. In the Family-Park, beginners can practice their first tricks on smaller obstacles, banks and mini jumps.

Besides the TFI Snowpark there is also the Funpark Eggishorn and the Funpark Konkordia at the Fiesch-Eggishorn. The two freestyle areas are on both sides of the Konkordia piste and are able to be reached with the 4-person chair lift Flesch or with the 6-person chair lift Talegga. The Konkordia-Area is set up with smaller moguls and curvy runs for freestyle-learners and offers newcomers a perfect way to play. The Funpark Eggishorn, on the contrary, has proper rails and jumps on offer.
