This skiing mountain brings special joy to the hearts of freeriders and snowboarders: Only some of the pistes on the Jakobshorn are rolled by machine. Hence some of the downhill runs – such as the one into the Dischmatal valley – provide skiing fun on deep snow until well into the spring.
Besides its extensive network of ski pistes, Samnaun offers a very special opportunity – this village in the far east of Switzerland is a paradise for duty-free shopping. The wide slopes of the Duty-Free Run take you from the Palinkopf mountain on the Austrian-Swiss border directly to the shopping mile.
The Videmanette Piste is the longest run in the Gstaad ski region – the descent to Rougemont is a whopping 10 km long. The piste has several great carving areas with some more level sections in between.
