SNOW WEEKEND 2021

 

January 23rdand 24th, 2021
Aletsch Arena (a balcony with lots of sun)

Hotel Alpina, Fiescheralp

 

Registration opens after the SAM.

 

The nicest ski resort in the Swiss alps with a beautiful view, best ski slopes and also offering wonderful snow walking trails for all ages (also small kinds). Because there is almost no altitude difference between the villages Fiescheralp, Bettmeralp and Riederalp.

 

Crystalline air, snow crunching underfoot and sunshine from early till late. A box seat view of Aletsch Glacier and clear views of the Valais’ prettiest four-thousand-meter peaks.

 

With its fragrant and revitalising alpine air, family-friendly Aletsch Arena is just the place for our next ski weekend. Traditional Valais homes, chalets and hotels lend original charm to the villages in the three traffic-free Alps.

 

With a length of 23 kilometers, an average width of 1,800 meters, and a surface area of approximately 100 square kilometers, the Aletsch Glacier has an impressive 27 billion tons of ice. The ice mass moves from the northern flanks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau down into the valley of Valais, and its meltwater flows through the wild Massa Gorge into the Rhone. As a landscape of extraordinary beauty, the Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch Region was included in the list of UNESCO World Natural Heritage sites in 2001.

 

The sun-drenched terraces of Fiescheralp, Bettmeralp and Riederalp are half way between the valley and the sky. Six cable cars convey guests from the Rhone Valley to the resort villages and into the hiking paradise of the Aletsch Region, at an elevation of about 2,000 meters. From here they can travel to the most beautiful vantage points such as the 2,927-meter Eggishorn, which offers a panoramic view of the Aletsch and Fiescher glaciers.
