This family-friendly resort has a surprisingly good range of slopes for all abilities and styles, albeit in modest quantities. Famous for being where Sherlock Holmes met his demise, it makes a good day out from Interlaken or Luzern or a pleasant destination for a short break. It is a good choice for beginners and intermediates and rarely gets queues at the lifts. A few years back there was detailed plan to connect Meiringen-Hasliberg to nearby Melchsee-Frutt with a tramway and provide lifts between Melchsee-Frutt and Engelberg via Jochpass to create "Snow Paradise Titlis Hasliberg" with 210km of piste, but the plan faced significant opposition on environmental grounds and was shelved.
The 3.3km run from Planplatten, 2245m, to Bidmi at 1423m is the best in the resort. The longest is off Glogghüss.
The Aquarium in Käserstatt and the Kuhstall in Mägisalp have reasonable après ski, although Meiringen itself is quiet.
The best destination to access the downhill slopes by public transport in this ski area is Meiringen. Station 15 minutes from cable car or take courtesy bus.
