Hasliberg Switzerland is a beautiful ski region considered among the best in the
Swiss Alps for young families. Located in the Bernese Oberland, Meiringen Hasliberg is
the ski area you access from the base village of Meiringen - where you can
arrive by train, taking the tram up to Hasliberg Reuti, or you can drive, where you catch a gondola
up to the ski slopes.
The ski slopes at Haslital include three mountains east to west, Käserstatt-Hochsträss, Mägisalp-Haagen
and Planplatten. Modern gondolas
and chairlifts serve 60 kilometers of prepared slopes up to 7,982'
A 2014 six passenger chairlift at Käserstatt this season with a
brilliant blue bubble cover offers improved ski access to Mägisalp pleasant
prepared runs. Skiers and riders will find well groomed pistes and trails of
all abilities at Haslital. There are many off piste adventures at
Haslital, but you better have a guide to avoid unmarked cliffs, farmers fences
buried below the snow, and potential avalanche zones.
As you ski along the pleasant ski trails of Haslital, you pass mountain chalets
flying the traditional square Swiss flag, open for lunch and drinks, we
recommend the old Häägen Hut at Mägisalp and the more modern Balis Chalet.
Skiing by farmer's fences and cheese huts you are reminded of the
centuries old tradition of summer cattle grazing in these mountains and
delicious cheese making in these old wooden huts that continues to this day.
Snowboarders at Haslital love the natural gullies, half pipes and ridges
off Meiringen Hasliberg, while young families enjoy Bidmi Skihäsliland
- a wonderful learning area with a magic carpet, beginner lifts, a fairy tale
house, and an igloo village. For kids, the legend of the trolls, Muggestutz, is
presented throughout the ski resort, telling the animated story of local
mountain trolls to the delight of Swiss children.
The Haslital summit highlight is the beautiful panorama restaurant Alpen Tower on Planplatten
at 7,381', a must for a scenic drink at Alpen Tower Bar top floor with 360 views of Titlis Glacier
in nearby Engelberg, the Rothorn
and the Jungfrau region are amazing. Haslital and Engelberg are so close they
could connect ski resorts with a few lifts, and hope to in the next decade.
Hasliberg has plenty of diversion for skiers and snowboarders, with an Audi Snow
Cross Park at Hääggen-Mägisalp, a snow park for free skiing and riding, night
skiing, sledding and family toboggan parties, ice skating and even Bavarian
curling. Hasliberg Meiringen also offers snowshoe trails, winter hiking - which
is called "winter wandering" in German, and cross country ski trails through the beautiful Gadmen Valley
For lodging while skiing Haslital, you can stay on mountain at the lovely Hotel
Wetter in Hasliberg Hohflu, a 1907 lodge on the mountain, completely redesigned
for modern comfort and top cuisine.
Hotel Viktoria is a
modest but well located place to stay for families when skiing Haslital,
with dormitory style lodging, and communal dining for breakfast and dinner, and
activities for the kids. Located in the
mountainside village of Hasliberg-Rueti steps to the Gondola, Hotel Viktoria was
formerly owned by the Methodist church and now by a Dutch family, its a short tram or bus ride
the Train to Meiringen, with beautiful views of the Alps and lifts - the tram
goes right by the Lodge.
You can also lodge in downtown Meiringen, particularly if you are travelling by
train and only staying a few nights, take the tram up to the ski resort each day
and return to the fun village of Meiringen staying at Hotel Victoria or Hotel
Sherlock Holmes - the fictional character died here and is revered with a museum
and much local legend.
