Cross-country skiing


Sunnbüel provides cross-country start on 24.11.2019

Why wait for the others? After the snowfalls of the last few days, the Sunnbüel team has been busy preparing outside. The result: Above Kandersteg, the first open track of the destination will be ready on weekends.

For Sunnbüel, the high-altitude trails at 1936 m above sea level have always been an important mainstay. But the first open cross-country ski runs in the region have not been offered here so far. In recent years, the winter season has been opened together with the mountain railway - i.e. only on the Saturday before Christmas. This has now changed: Because more than 20 centimetres of snow fell on Sunnbüel, his team has already started preparing the cross-country ski runs. "The cross-country ski runs open the cross-country skiing season in the Bernese Oberland for the first time. That's historic! It was obvious that this had to come at some point. Kandersteg is regarded throughout Switzerland as the hotspot for Nordic sports. With the ski jump and the endless network of cross-country ski trails, the village offers ideal conditions for top athletes as well as for those who enjoy sport. And now from November onwards.
