Winter walking.......an elixir for my innermost.......one of the activities i love most during the season. Flumserberg offers 21 km of winter hiking paths in the most beautiful landscape. Savour the pure peace, idyll and nature in the snow covered landscape and the magnificent view of the 7 Churfirsten mountain chains.
Here you will experience a picturesque views around the mountain chains of the region. The Panorama-circular building serves a self-service resto with free flow, Arvenstübli, big hall, beautiful vantage terrace, winter snow bar, playground (indoor in winter and outdoor in summer)
From Flumserberg you have a very good view to the Mountain Chain called Churfürsten. Can you imagine I have been up to all of the seven summits?
Flumserberg is a ski area extending over two counties : Flums (top start for a descent : Prodalp, 1939 m) and Quarten (top start : Leist : 2222 m).
You can access the Flumserberg resort with public transportation from one of two train stations : Flums (first found coming from Chur, Austria, parts of Germany and Italy) or Unterterzen, Quarten (first found coming from other Zürich, Luzern, France or other parts of Germany or Italy)
1. taking the bus from Flums train station, which brings you up to the ski cabins at 1200m (Tannenheim)
2. from the cabins located directly at lake Walensee (420m), in front of the train station Untertertzen (Quarten), directly at the lake, that bring you to Tannenboden (1250 m).
This makes Unterterzen by far the lowest located gate to a ski resort in the Alps.
Yeah, that was just great! I got this free weekend in Flumserberg and all I could do up there is watching the Snow Storm... be careful when going up there. They shut down all the Funiculars when the wind is to strong.
Just a few pictures to illustrate the beautiful landscape of the Flumserberg area. I really like the wave rocks on the other shore of the Walensee.
Leist is the highest accessible point of the Flumserberg skiing area. It is known as one of the steepest and most difficult runs in the Alps. From Leist, it is possible (snow permitting) to ski all the way down to Oberterzen (665 m).
