The Ski Resort
The Haslital offers a complete palate of snow sports and the opportunity to relax and rejuvenate in quiet, remote valleys. The winter sports area Meiringen-Hasliberg caters to all the needs of skiers and snowboarders. Out of the way alpine valleys offer hiking trains and sledding runs. The family friendly region has something for everyone – adults and children alike.
In winter, when persistant banks of cloud cover the flatlands, the sun usually shines on the Hasliberg. The Brünig Pass acts as a weather divide and the clouds that waft over from central Switzerland dissipate into nothing. Grey and dismal in the north – sunny and refreshing on the Haslital! What better way to make the most out of the day than a day spent out in the snow.
The snow sports area of Meiringen-Hasliberg has plenty to offer for young and old. There are ski slopes to suit all levels – from beginner to expert. 60 km of prepared slopes up to 2,433 m. above sea level are accessed by 14 transport lifts with a good number of modern aerial cable cars and chair lifts. A wide range of mountain restaurants await – from the panorama restaurant Alpen tower to cosy mountain restaurants and rustic alpine huts alongside the pistes. The biggest event in the region is the Ski-Cross-Weltcup which takes place at the beginning of March with world-class athletes competing in exciting races with 4 athletes on the course at the same time.
One of the best learner’s areas in alps can be found on the Hasliberg. “Skihäsliland” is set up so that kids can have fun learning to ski and snowboard. The area is equipped with a number of children’s ski lifts, a snowboard lift, a carussel and a playtower with slide. “Skihäsliland” is at the mid-station Bidmi in a safe area set away from, but alongside the piste, so parents can easily check on their kids now and again.

Most Difficult Runs
The Hasliberg also promises relaxation and impressive winter experiences far away from the ski slopes. The sunny plateau above the Aare Valley is a popular winter hiking area and boasts 35km of groomed and signposted hiking trails through snow covered forests and past charming chalets. Fantastic views can be had along the way – across to the other side of the valley to Rosenlaui and the Bernese mountains such as the famous Wetterhorn and Eiger mountains. A cross-country circuit for classic and skating and two sledding runs round off the attractions.
The Haslital has much to offer - apart from the Meiringen-Hasliberg snow sports area - majestic alps and tranquil natural surroundings are in the foreground. The Rosenlaui Valley will take you far away from the hubbub on the slopes and into a winter wonderland where you can enjoy a hike along the flat valley floor or maybe tackle the snow-shoe trail up to the Grosse Scheidegg. A sled ride back down to Meiringen could be the day’s highlight.
