S

toos is a lovely, uncrowded car-free resort situated under the Mythens and above the village of Morschach at the head of a high valley. A cable car connects from Morschach just above Brunnen and a funicular railway (mooted to be replaced with a cable car) runs from just outside Schwyz. From the funicular the slopes are a five minute combination of a glide and walk away, but the cable car is quite close to the bottom chair on the Fronalpstock runs. In effect the runs at Stoos are divided up between those of the two peaks of the Fronalpstock and Klingenstock. From the top of the Fronalpstock you can look down across Lake Lucerne to Rütli meadow, where by convention it is held that the Swiss Confederation was founded in 1291. Beyond Rütli, you can see Rigi and Pilatus and many other peaks of Central Switzerland. There are two runs down from Fronalpstock, both pleasant reds, and alongside them are a toboggan run, an airboard run and a fair amount of off-piste. To get between Fronalpstock and Klingenstock in either direction you need to get a bit of speed up, which can be a little perilous as you cross over people doing the manoeuvre in the opposite direction as well as sundry tobogganists, pedestrians and winter walkers. To get up Klingenstock you also need to take a surface lift before you can get to the chairlift, but the reward is a bowl comprising fiendishly steep reds, a clutch of black runs and acres of off-piste. Needless to say, despite a learners area and some very limited blue runs in the village, Stoos is not a good resort for nervous intermediates.

Best of the Slopes

The Klingenstock has the tougher runs and more off-piste, but the ridiculously scenic red piste 2, "Panoramique", off Fronalpstock is my favourite, despite a very short section where you will probably need to walk unless you get a lot of speed up.
