Swiss skiing in SplügenWinter Sports in Splügen

Ski and snowboard 30 km of piste in Splügen between 1460-2215m


compact village on a ridge between the Splügen and San Bernardino passes and only a short distance from the Italian border, Splügen is quite remote and consequently the slopes below Piz Tambo are usually uncrowded. All in all it is a very pleasant resort with enough variety for a day out for all standards and disciplines of winter sports enthusiasts. The lift system connects well, with one gondola, a couple of chairlifts and a solitary t-bar giving a good range of runs for beginners through experts. There is tubing, tobogganing, some excellent winter walking and, in the valley, a cross-country circuit.
