The Ski Resort

With its different ski routes, slopes and terrain parks, fun and excitement for all ages are guaranteed at the Wildhaus ski resort. Two easy, eight intermediate and two difficult slopes as well as a network of ungroomed trails with a length of twelve kilometers (7.5 miles) ensure everyone finds their ideal challenge.

Be sure to check out the funslope to hear the sounds that you and the other winter sports fans are making on the skiable piano. On the snow playground, you'll find waves, curves and tunnels great for skiers of all ages. Don't forget to high five 'Slopy'!

The Snowland terrain park is another highlight at the resort. Try out new stunts at around 20 different obstacles and have a drink with the other freestylers and snowboarders at one of the many events afterwards.

Go for a ride on the Warmtobel slope for even more thrills and find out why some people describe the narrow and steep run as something they'd only seen in video games before. Once a year, the Warmtobel slope turns into Switzerland's largest natural terrain park with 30 obstacles, attracting freestylers from all around the world.

Freeriders have the opportunity of exploring the ungroomed deep snow of the impressive Galfer route. In Toggenburg, you'll have to overcome an altitude difference of 1,600 meters (5,250 feet) on one of the most intriguing routes.

On Mountain Dining

Put together your own menu at the Berggasthaus Gamsalp. The restaurant is divided into a more rustic part and a modern extension offering a panoramic view.

You can try tasty Schlorzifladen and other regional specialties at the cozy “Säntis Stübli” in the Berggasthof Oberdorf. Enjoy your break with a wonderful view from the wind-protected sun terrace.

The Gamserugg hut is a real hidden gem in terms of snacks, serving a large selection of “Huskafis” dishes.

Must-Ski Runs

The two-kilometer (1.2-mile) long Warmtobel slope offers a great view of the Rhine valley over steep hilltops and peaceful slopes. The narrow route is surrounded by forest and offers a good practice opportunity for experienced skiers.

The Galfer route is around nine kilometers long and leads freeriders from Gamserrugg to Grabs in the St Gallen Rhine valley. The route is better suited for advanced skiers since entering can turn out to be quite difficult depending on snow conditions.

Activities

Wildhaus is a great destination for snow tours and winter hiking. The Gampefin loop takes you about four hours to complete and leads through a dreamlike winter landscape from Wildhaus to Oberdorf. Looking for a shorter tour? Take the chair lift to Gamsalp and enjoy an easy, half-hour hike on the groomed trail. Those looking to spend a little more time in the mountains should try the Toggenburger Höhenweg. The trail takes about two to three hours and stretches to the Alp Sellamatt in the nearby ski resort of Chäserugg.

Snowshoe trails can be found around the Schwendi lakes, beginning in Oberdorf and at the Wildhaus-Oberdorf chair lift. Both tours are easy to intermediate and offer wonderful views of the Rhine valley's snowy vastness.

Après-Ski and Nightlife

The Gräppelen-Bar is legendary in Wildhaus. During the week it is frequented mostly by locals and guests visiting the village. On the weekends, however, the freestyler scene is the majority here. Over the course of the winter season, concerts and live acts by local DJs take place here regularly.

The best snow bar by far is found in the Snowland terrain park. Events held here usually last until sundown.

Visit the Funi Bar to enjoy the end of the day in a more relaxed fashion. Located in the Berggasthaus Oberdorf, the bar offers the opportunity to have a few beers in a friendly atmosphere.
