Dream descents

The longest ski runs

The incredible Valais descents offer skiers unadulterated and endless fun. The descents are up to 25 kilometres long – non-stop, without ever having to use a ski lift. 


Whether you arrive by public transport, car or plane, the Valais offers outstanding transport connections in all directions and, since the opening of the Lötschberg Base Tunnel, is even quicker to reach than before.



The beauty of sledging is that anyone can do it. And it offers fun for all. A toboggan run is thus the perfect winter activity for young and old, large and small. Toboggans can easily be hired at the valley stations.
