Winter sports programme for people of all ages

Diemtigtal is a paradise for snow fans as it is very accessible and easy to reach. The mountain railways and the three winter sports areas “Wiriehorn”, “Grimmialp” and “Springenboden” are particularly family-friendly. Here, children can romp around in the snow to their heart's content. The little ones enjoy themselves on the snow play areas and gather their first winter sports experiences. The cross-country track in Diemtigtal takes you through forests, over snow-white meadows and past mountain streams with snow and ice formations. Your sledge ride on the prepared sledge runs may be fast or leisurely, but it will certainly be fun.

The winter trail network with three trails will become a relaxing tour for you. Allow the absolute calm to take its effect while you walk through quiet woods and over snow-laden fields. When it comes to your skiing tour in the impressive landscape, choose between a shorter tour, a full-day tour or combine the many possibilities right from the outset with a whole week of tours. On one of the snowshoe trails, you will leave your own very personal tracks in the snow. Then you look back and promise yourself you will soon return to this winter wonderland.
