The East Run

One of the most scenic slopes in Europe – through the spectacular landscape of a high Alpine area, through forests and over open slopes, past the rock faces towards Espel. Here you will experience naturally varied and rolling, hilly runs instead of a levelled expressway – here you can concentrate on your own movements and technique. The perfect athletic programme on the Chäserrugg.

The Long Run

After a leisurely start over the wide ridge of the Chäserrugg, the tour continues at the Stöfeli Mountain Inn on the Forest Run through the "Schwiloch" towards Alp Sellamatt. From there the downhill run with its reliable snow conditions takes skiers over varied terrain to the village of Alt St. Johann. Everyone who succeeds in finishing this tour has covered one of the longest downhill runs in Eastern Switzerland. The perfect endurance programme on the Chäserrugg.
