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.

snowpark and the BigAirBag provide variety and the local ski school will give you expert tips for carving the snow perfectly.

Sledging

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.
