otted around between Schwyz and Einsiedeln, the slopes that make up the Mythen Region lie within an hour's drive of Zürich and Luzern. This loose and almost arbitrary set of resorts includes Brunni-Haggenegg, Holzegg, Handgruobi-Rotenfluh and Ibergeregg - the latter of which it shares with the Hoch-Ybrig lift system. It is also included in the Swiss Knife Valley group of resorts which include Stoos, Sattel, Einsiedeln, Rothenthurm, Rigi Scheidegg and the Rigi - but for some reason not Hoch-Ybrig. The Mythen Region resorts are mostly served by surface lifts and poor public transport by Swiss standards, but they offer free parking, well-groomed slopes, affordable passes and stunning views. The area also have ski schools, winter hiking paths, snowshoe trails, toboggan runs and a freestyle funpark under Brünnelistock.
