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.
