ituated high up near the source of the mighty river Rhône, Goms is one of the best cross-country ski areas in the world. However it is also blessed with extensive winter walks, snowshoe walks and toboggan runs. Although there is only the small downhill area of Bellwald within the district boundaries of Goms (accessed from Fürgengen), from Fiesch there is a cable car to the fabulous Aletsch Arena and Andermatt is only a short train journey away, beyond the Furkapass. With numerous stations along the valley on the Matterhorn-Gotthard railway, getting around is a doddle. The main communities are Bellwald, Ernen, Fiesch, Fieshertal, Münster-Geschinen and Obergoms. Sadly the planned redevelopment of Ernen as a ski resort has been put on indefinite hold.
By Public Transport
The best destination to access the downhill slopes by public transport in this ski area is Fürgangen-Bellwald Talstation. Station is adjacent to the cable car for Bellwald downhill area. Subsequent stops up to Oberwald provide better access for other winter sports.
