The ideal family ski resort

You can reach the Niederhorn ski resort within 20 minutes from Thun or Interlaken and enjoy the family atmosphere its well known for.

There are three different slopes offering skiing to Vorsass or, depending on the snow, even to Beatenberg. Whether a beginner or a ski tourer – the slopes on the Niederhorn offer something for everyone, including stunning views over Lake Thun.

Hungry from a day on the slopes? The cosy restaurants will treat you with tasty alpine food. 

Good to know: you can get the half day card already from 11.00 am.


Skiing and snowboarding

For your local winter fun

Three different slopes lead from the sunny height of Niederhorn at 1950 m above sea level to Vorsass and even all the way down to Beatenberg station if there is enough snow.  

Sunshine, views over the snowcapped alps and snowcovered fir trees and tasty food from the local Berghaus kitchens.
