Families get as much a run for their money on the Horneggli as do skilled skiers. The Mike von Grünigen Run is the pride of this piste network. Here, as they go through their entire repertoire, passionate carvers can follow in the footsteps of this native-born giant slalom world champion.
The Horneggli has a more diverse piste network than does any other part of the extensive Gstaad ski region. Mike Grünigen’s home village, Schönried, is located down in the valley. Twice world champion, he is one of the best giant slalom racers of all time. The Direttissima from the mountain down into the valley was named in his honour. It provides a wonderfully varied combination of steep slopes, compressions, jumps and bumps and hence provides perfect conditions for ambitious carving specialists.
