Skiing in the area
If you’re coming to Switzerland in winter, you will quickly start to notice all the people carrying skis and snowboards. In the stations, in the road, on the cars. We’re keen skiers and that’s why we will have ski lifts nearby, no matter where you are.
So it’s no surprise that also near to Lanzenhäusern, you can find a few ski lifts. Although not part of the high mountain ranges of the Swiss alps, the area has a few small mountains and plenty of hills, where you can have a day’s worth of fun. Should you be a regular skier, you might want to head to the Bernese Oberland. You can reach it between 90 minutes and two hours, where the slopes will be much longer and higher in variety. Still, also for the regular skier, some of the local ski lifts are a whole lot of fun.
To make it easier to gain an overview, here’s a table summarizing the local ski lifts:
The ski lift Selital is accessible by a direct bus from Schwarzenburg (one train station away) in winter time (end of December to February).
