The descent from the Eggishorn to the Heimatt combines spectacular views with a varied range of pistes covering wide slopes and short steep sections. The highlight is the valley run to Fiesch.
There’s more to this run than just going up and whizzing down again – for the panorama from the Eggishorn is quite phenomenal. Also, enjoy a unique view of the elegantly curved arch of the Aletsch Glacier. These wide slopes provide loads of versatile fun on the snow. A black-marked downhill run from the Eggishorn first takes you to Fiesch and from there you follow the red-marked pistes to the Fiescheralp and Heimatt. And if that’s not enough, there is also the option of the valley piste down to Fiesch.
