Newer, faster Saanerslochbahn cableway

The new Saanerslochbahn cableway commenced operations in the winter of 2018. It replaced the old cableway, which has been running for 40 years, and is not only transporting passengers more comfortably to the ski area but is also a world first.

The glass panorama roof construction, known as a D-Line, is the first of its kind anywhere and it will now take even less time to reach the ski slopes.

There are numerous attractions in the ski area between Saanenmöser, Schönried, St. Stephan and Zweisimmen waiting for you to discover and you can explore the entire ski resort without using the same ski lift or the same slope twice.
