Skiing & Snowboarding
The Elm ski area is just 4 km from HängeMatt.
With its 40 km of slopes, it is manageable and quiet, but offers the right thing for every skill level.
Just a two-minute walk from the HängeMatt, the Weissenberge cable car will take you uphill for a 3 km long sledge run through the wildly romantic Chrauchbach Valley. The toboggan run ends just past HängeMatt, where a nice hot chocolate awaits.

Eleven ski tours are offered in Glarus' Chli Valley for almost all skill levels. Two actually start right outside the front door of the HängeMatt: the Sunnenhörnli and the Gulderstock tours. There are mountain huts nearby, such as the Stäfeli ski lodge and in the Mülibach Valley.
For further info, we recommend:
The Chli Valley offers a total of 14 km of trails for cross-country skiers and skaters. One of the best-prepared trails runs for 7 km from Matt to Engi. In Elm, the 7 km are even illuminated until 9 pm on Tuesday and Thursday nights.
For beginners, the Elm Ski School does offer cross-country skiing courses.
There are numerous groomed winter hiking trails in the Chli Valley. Whether in Elm, between the villages, around Matt, or on the sun-kissed Weissenberg.
