pretty valley off the Simmental, Diemtigtal is a family-oriented resort with a number of winter sports diversions, including a range of downhill slopes, an impressive cross-country circuit, a couple of toboggan runs and a natural ice rink. The main areas to ski or snowboard are beginner-friendly Grimmialp at the top of the valley, and Wiriehorn with its snowpark, toboggan run and varied runs. Both these areas, and the smaller Springenboden area have ski lessons and a children's snow garden.
