Point of view

Savour a sun terrace high above the valley floor, overlooking the Diemtigtal

Encircled by peaks, Springenboden lies amid the unique alpine landscape of the Diemtigtal valley. In the winter, this family-oriented skiing region presents a ski lift, two child lifts, a ski school and a signposted snowshoe trail. In summer, the relaxing hiking paradise offers barbecue spots. This ideal and easily accessible viewpoint in the Diemtigtal valley.

The adventure starts before you even arrive as the narrow road winds its way up to Springenboden from the valley. Strapping on newly waxed skis, you are ready to cut the first turns of the day into the perfectly groomed piste. For sustenance, drop in at one of the two restaurants. From the terrace of the Restaurant Springenboden, you can observe the happenings on the practice slopes of the ski school over a warm drink. The team at the Swiss Ski School of Diemtigtal looks after the youngest guests and helps them progress.

Snowy experiences for non-skiers too

Those who prefer to take things at a more leisurely pace can rent snowshoes instead.
