Beginner Skiing in Sonnenkopf-Klostertal

Beginner skiers and boarders, novices included, can learn high in the ski area on short, well groomed, blue runs accessed from the top of the Sonnenkopf gondola and close to the Bergrestaurant Sonnenkopf (1830m), hence they too can enjoy panoramic mountain views from the outset. There's also a special area for children close to the restaurant.

All of Sonnenkopf's intermediate and advanced ski runs are situated in the east whereas conveniently for beginners nearly all easy blue runs are concentrated in the west and easily accessed by the main gondola and four surface lifts.

Beginners can start by exploring the handful of well groomed, gentle blue runs served by four surface lifts close to the top of the gondola, until they are ready to ski blue runs 1 and 1a, a 6km long blue run down to the base station in the valley or stop half way at middle lift station.

After exploring the blue runs in the west, beginners can ride the Obermurl chairlift to 2,200m on Glattingrat where they can choose between blue 5 or the not very difficult red run 2, both of which lead back to the bottom of the Obermurl chairlift and adjacent Bettler Alpele drag lift which leads back to the main beginner area and the restaurant.
