attel lies between Goldau and the Ägerisee. It has two claims to fame. Here in the hamlet of Schornen a battle took place in 1315 between the Habsburgs and the people of Schwyz and their confederates, known as the “first freedom battle” in the establishment of the Swiss Confederation. The second claim to fame is that it is the first resort in the world to have revolving gondolas. Apart from the runs below the gondola top station, all the runs are served by surface lifts, but that apart it is a good resort for children, beginners and intermediates, with a couple of more challenging runs for experts. There are fabulous views from all over the resort, but particularly the summit of Hochstuckli.
