Winter hiking

Through dreamy snowy landscapes

Various hiking trails are also open in winter.

Moreover, some snowshoe walking trails pass directly in front of the Weisshorn! They can therefore be taken to reach our hotel. Snowshoes can be rented in sport shops in St-Luc.

Skiing and snowboarding

Ski Area St-Luc / Chandolin

From the Hotel Weisshorn you can easily reach the impressive ski resorts of St-Luc / Chandolin. In a majestic, unspoiled nature, a ski area with 75 km of slopes awaits you.

From the Weisshorn hotel to the slopes: it is very easy to ski to the new chairlift de La Forêt (near the car park la Forêt). You will then find yourself directly on the slopes of St-Luc. It is also possible to go down until St-Luc. However we advise our guests to take the chairlift de La Forêt, as there is less queue in the morning during high season. (To reach the hotel Weisshorn from the slopes, we offer a complimentary shuttle service by ratrac bus.)
