Leukerbad

Are you a sports enthusiast? Are you family-oriented? Or do you prefer to enjoy snow-covered mountain landscapes in peace and quiet? Then you’ll find you’ve come to exactly the right place in the Torrent winter sports area above Leukerbad / Albinen. Skiing, snowboarding, winter hiking, sledging, paragliding, culinary highlights, unforgettable events and much more besides can be enjoyed on the Torrent in winter. 

Skiing / snowboarding
The Torrent winter sports area is particularly popular among families and young people. Visitors appreciate the wonderful views of the Valais Alps as far as the Rhône Valley as well as the marvellous range of different winter sports on offer.

The Torrent beckons with 50 km of superbly groomed pistes ranging from 1,411 m to 2,610 m in altitude (2.5 km of blue, 20 km of red and 27.5 km of black ski runs), the adrenalin rush of the fun park with 3 kickers, 4 rails, a box and various other obstacles in natural terrain and, of course, lots of other winter sport opportunities. The Torrent area is considered to be particularly snow-assured due to its lack of rocky slopes. For snowborders there are rainbow-box, C-box, flat-down box, kickers and a new piknicker.

Panoramic winter hiking trail
Landscape lovers are also in for a delightful surprise on the Torrent. The 5 km long, carefully groomed panoramic winter hiking trail on the mountain is an absolutely unforgettable experience. The starting point for hiking trails to suit every taste is the Rinderhütte restaurant at 2,350 m above sea level. From there it only takes about 90 minutes to walk across the Torrentalp mountainside and reach the cable car midway station at 1,920 m above sea level, where wonderful views of 4,000 m peaks in the Valais Alps right through to the Rhone Valley await you.

Paragliding: In the air...
Experience the indescribable feeling of soaring silently and as free as a bird.
Enjoy the spectacular view of Leukerbad and the Rhone valley during a tandem flight. The Airtaxi paragliding team from Leukerbad offers you this great opportunity.

Park Erli
The Ski area Erli located in the center of the village of Leukerbad (at the Sports Arena) is the ideal place for learning the Snow sports. Here children and adults learn to ski in a simple and playful way.
