The east run is open!

The time has come - the East Run is open from 10 January 2024! 5.2 kilometres of variety and views await you on one of the most beautiful descents. The descent starts right at the summit of Chäserrugg and leads to the eastern side of the summit by the ski lift. After the sporty start, there are passages past impressive rock faces and over a wide alp with views of the Alpstein.

The descent finally ends at Espel, where two buildings by world-class architects Herzog & de Meuron are located: the valley station of the Stöfeli cable car and the Espel Pavillon. The latter will also be open again from 10 January 2024 and will serve delicious soups, sandwiches and crème slices on the edge of the piste.
