Eggberge – above the Reuss Valley

When the weather report predicts “Mist in the valley”, one best escapes the greyness on the sun-drenched terrace of Eggberge.

When the weather forecast threatens with “gray down under and blue on top“ – this is the place to avoid the fog. 1000 meters above the Urnersee lake, with views as far as the Gotthard region.

Snowboarding and Skiing Paradise

Summer skiers and snowboarders enjoy schussing down the 20 km of well-groomed summer pistes on the Fee Glacier, located at an altitude of 3500 m.a.s.l. The breathtaking panorama of the highest Valaisian peaks and hot summer sun contribute to the incomparable summer skiing experience.

Already at the valley station of the Alpin Express (1800 m.a.s.l.) the people who are dressed for winter sports seem a bit odd: it is summer after all and the sun easily warms up the Saas Valley to 25 °. But once the Alpin Express and Metro Alpin reaches its end destination, this attire makes sense.

Planplatten – Alpen Tower

In the summer of 1998, a state-of-the-art gondola replaced the 2-seater chairlift Mägisalp – Planplatten, which dates back to Gründerzeit at the end of the 19th century. A year later the construction began on the panoramic restaurant Alpen Tower.

The Sustenhorn, Grimsel region and Finsteraarhorn on the one side, with Lake Brienz, the Rothorn and Jura in the far distance on the other. A beautiful vantage point to the east of the Bernese Oberland.

Plaine-Morte - Glacial Plateau

Plaine-Morte, the “dead plain” above Crans Montana, is located at the border of Valais and the Bernese Oberland, between Wildstrubel, Weisshorn und Gletscherhorn. The plain is covered by a glacier plateau and offers winter sports fun all year round.

The glacier west of the Wildstrubel is flat and in places as much as 200 meters thick – draining direction Lenk predominantly in the Bernese Oberland, but also in the Rhone Valley of Valais.
