Misty mountains vaulting over a hidden valley. Forested slopes beneath towering peaks. Gleaming glaciers shrouded in sparkling powder. Charming, slower-paced Swiss villages of lore and legend. Great meals and personalized service by Canadian and Swedish management in a small, intimate lodge setting. Slope-side convenience letting you ski down to the main cable car and off the mountain right to our hotel door. Exciting developments that, every season, are adding state-of-the-art new lifts. Terrain of every kind for every kind of skier and snowboarder. And great value.
Come discover a unique combination of hidden gem, jaw-dropping big-mountain terrain, uncrowded slopes, better pricing than in larger Swiss resorts and the charms of a slightly slower pace of life – yet all amidst a dynamic tourism scene undergoing major improvements.
Set in the isolated upper Rhine Valley in Switzerland’s mainly German-speaking Canton Graubuenden, Disentis is on hardly anyone’s radar despite its breathtaking scenery of 3,300-meter-high (11,000 feet) peaks and terrain that can bring the descents of a lifetime. The ski area’s immense lift-serviced vertical of nearly 1,611 meters (5,300 feet) and easily accessible peak-to-valley off-piste runs, plus hiking-accessed glacier descents of up to 2,800 vertical metres (9,200 feet), have given Disentis a cult following among freeride skiers and ski tourers.
Yet Disentis and the resorts it is tied into offer options to suit every skier’s needs. Disentis is now on the same lift pass as Sedrun and Andermatt, and the connecting train is free-of-charge, creating a large, linked skiing domain. A train stop is just two minutes’ walk from Lodge Sax.
