he ski area of Marbachegg lies in the UNESCO Entlebuch Biosphere Reserve, the only such reserve in Switzerland and noted for its Alpina flora and fauna. There are stunning views across to the Jungfrau from the (relatively low) summit. Most of the runs can be accessed from the gondola top station, with a surface lift servicing the other runs and the snow park, which includes a half pipe. All round a good little resort for families, beginners, early intermediates and snowboarders.
