Enjoy the thrills of biking

Take a chair lift (which also carries bikes) to the summit station, the starting point for various downhill trails suitable for advanced riders and beginners alike. Every year, the "Weryhorny" section is the venue for the iXS Downhill Cup. At the end of the section, visitors can make free use of the first permanent pump track in the Bernese Oberland. Want to improve your biking skills? The Hot-Trail bike school shows kids and adults some great tricks.

Ride a scooter into the valley

Riding a scooter – with friends, family members or colleagues – is great fun. Rent a scooter and a helmet from the summit station, and start the adventure. Follow a paved route through a beautiful fir forest and back into the valley.

Wiriehorn: a paradise for skiers

The Wiriehorn – the largest ski area in Diemtigtal Nature Park – has a chair lift, four T-bar lifts and a children’s lift. From snowboarding to downhill, the family-friendly ski area promises snowy thrills amid the peaks of the Bernese Oberland. The local ski school offers professional skiing and snowboarding lessons. A cross-country track starts from the Riedi base station and leads to the Grimmialp and back.

Enjoy sledging

A 5.6-kme sledging run leads you down into the valley from the summit station at Riedli-Nüegg in around one hour. For a special experience, try night sledging: every Friday evening (weather permitting), headlamp-wearing sledging enthusiasts make the same run between 18.00 and 22.00h. Sledges can be rented from the Stucki Sport shop at the base station.
