During the winter months, the Lötschental offers varied ski terrain and a challenging freeride area. Against the impressive mountain backdrop of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Lauchernalp is a winter paradise with abundant snow and sun. A cable car, two chairlifts, one T-bar and a glacier cablecar offer access to the slopes. The glacier cable car leads to the Hockenhorngrat (3111m). There is also a winter hiking trail at over 3000m with a panoramic view of over 40 four-thousand-metre summits. For cross-country skiers and winter hikers there are roughly 50 km of trails, as well as 24 km of classic and skating track to explore.
