Sun, fun and loads of skiing and & boarding. The Jakobshorn was the first winter sports area for snowboarders and has always remained at the forefront of this fun mountain movement.

The Jakobshorn has a number of challenging runs for carvers. You've got to have a bit of fun - after all you are skiing on the "fun" mountain...

    Jakobshorn

    The Jakobshorn is and remains the 'trendsetter' amongst the winter sports regions. The very first T-bar tow in 1934 was quickly followed by comfortable chairlifts up to the fun mountain, which was the very first to extend a warm welcome to snowboarders. Freestylers can let off steam in the "Jatz Park", which, with 18 jumps, rollers and rails, is one of the largest in the Alps and the reputation of the parties held in the "Jatzhütte" has travelled far beyond the borders of Switzerland. The Jakobshorn is best known for relaxing hours spent under palm trees on its sun terrace, dancing to the sounds of international DJs or cooling off in the whirlpool. An "adventure" mountain for an up-for-it crowd.

    Park and Pipe

    Short, intensive runs in a compact, versatile and perfectly groomed park - this is what awaits freestylers at the renewed and expanded JatzPark on the Jakobshorn. Space was created to build the lines parallel to the lift. This allows us to offer four new lines: one line combined with rails and kickers for beginners and intermediate snowboarders, an intermediate rail and a professional kicker line. With these additions, the beginner, medium and pro lines at Jatzpark offers elements that are suitable for both beginners and professionals.

    The Jakobshorn has so much to offer families with children.

    Bolgen Family Land

    The whole family can spend an enjoyable and relaxing time at the foot of the Jakobshorn. The beginner's slope right by the Carjöl chairlift is perfect for your child's first tentative runs on snow and there is a good view from the restaurant over the slope beside the Bolgen ski-lift.  Relax by soaking up the sun on the sun-deck while your children discover the adventure of skiing in the ski school on the Disney slope .

    Avalanche Training Centre

    This Centre on the Jakobshorn, close to the Fuxägufer top station, offers training on the right use of an avalanche victim detection device (LVS) under realistic conditions. The training area contains a 100 x 100 m zone on a steep slope designed to replicate the conditions of a realistic avalanche.  Use of the training area is free to all holders of a valid ski pass for the lifts and cable cars. Please note that you should bring your own LVS and avalanche probe. The Centre is open every day during the operating hours of the cable cars and lifts.
