Gstaad Mountain Rides is one of the biggest, diverse and at the same time one of the most reliable ski areas in Switzerland for snow for skiing and snowboarding. The Bernese Oberland’s only glacier ski area is suitable for winter sports from the end-October until the early May.


New red run slope

External Page: Red Run Piste

Starting the next winter season 2017/2018, the Glacier 3000 ski area will have a new red run. The Red Run begins at the Scex Rouge mountain top station, passes under the Oldenhorn and below the Cabane middle station, to where it then joins the existing Martisberg Run.
Thanks to the new Red Run, Glacier 3000 guests can enjoy an 8 km run from 3000 down to 1300 meters.
