Ski area Toggenburg

Ski area Toggenburg

With the "Toggenburg" lift pass, you have access to a total of 60 km of piste and 25 modern lifts. The family-friendly ski area of Toggenburg combines the dreamy runs of the Chäserrugg (2,262 m) and the Gamserrugg (2,076 m) montains. Easy runs can be found around the middle stations, while experienced skiers can make their way along the smaller, more challenging Gamserugg eastern run and the eastern pistes of the Chäserrugg mountain. With the Iltios lift, ride up to 1,350 m altitude and from there, you'll make your way to the highest point in the ski area, on top of the Chäserrugg.

Two snow parks invite snowboarders and freestylers to Toggenburg: In the Wildhaus and Unterwasser fun parks, you can show your skills on a quarter pipe, various tables, jumps and slides! Furthermore, the idyllic natural landscape provides you with enchanting winter hiking trails through deep-snow, wintry panoramic views and an extensive portfolio for snowshoe hikers.

Night skiing Unterwasser

Night skiing is a special highlight in the Toggenburg ski area. In good weather and good snow conditions, skiers can extend their skiing day by entering the piste in floodlight and collect their last strength. Night skiing is possible at the Alt S. Johann-Sellamatt combi-lift and is easily reached. The illuminated pistes await beginners and experienced skiers with 3 km of piste. Night skiing is possible every Wednesday and Friday from 18:30 to 21:30.

Après ski Unterwasser

In the little village of Unterwasser, après ski tends to be on the rather quiet side of things. The Oberdorf mountain restaurant offers you a great viewing point to take in the dreamy mountainscape whilst enjoying a warm drink from a lounge chair. Those who prefer to spend their time a little more cosy and social can stroll into one of the little cafes and restaurants with culinary specialities and treat themselves to something special to round off their day of skiing.

The 3.5 km long toboggan run in Unterwasser is a popular meeting point for guests who still want a little action after their day on the piste. Relaxation can be found off piste, on one of the in total 18,5 km winter hiking trails, which take you through the enchanting wintry surroundings. The panoramic trail, Rosenboden, or the Toggenburg Sagenweg trail are definitely worth mentioning.

For children, an exciting winter playground can be found at the Iltios mountain station, where snowmen can be built or other wintry activities can take place.

Snowpark: Snowpark Snowland.ch Unterwasser

For snowboarders and fun-lovers, the Toggenburg ski area is quite well-known. How did it get it's reputation, though? Well, that's easy: the "Snowland" on the Ferienalp in Wildhaus is responsible for that! Winter sports fans of all experience levels will be drawn in by this professional fun park, with its 20 diverse obstacles spread out over two sectors, "Beginner" and "Advanced." Differing boxes (e.g. rainbow, straight, and eleven kinked boxes), rails and rides leave no wish unfulfilled. A special highlight is the "Big-Air," a large, inflatable cushion that gives you the chance to try out spectacular jumps and come in for a soft landing.

However, "Snowland" highest priority is more about the perfect atmosphere and not the measurement of skills! There's no competition between snowboards and free skiers here, but rather a familiar feeling, diverse events like grill evenings and football bets as well as music fitting the environment. Moreover, the park's motto "We care - You care!" stands for its speciality in being environmentally friendly!
