Ski Lifts in Murren
The ski lift system in Murren includes 14 lifts providing over 5,000m of vertical uplift and capable of carrying over 10,000 skiers and snowboarders per hour, which is enough to prevent queuing except for the cable cars to Birg and the Schilthorn at peak periods.
Murren Ski Lifts
There is a new chairlift from Allmiboden, at the bottom of Maulerhubel which leads up to the top of Allmendhubel and connects the two ski areas Winteregg with Schiltgrat and Gimmeln.
The wide variety of lifts is part of the experience of your skiing holiday in Murren and includes impressive cable car engineering, a funicular railway, half a dozen chairlifts, three drag lifts and an electric railway that runs along the cliff top between Grutschalp, Winteregg and Murren.
The Sonnenberg offers typical Swiss dishes and has a popular snowbar with relaxing deckchairs in the winter season.
The cable cars provide most of the uplift and the chairlifts, some of which are quite old, are gradually being updated and now include a new high-speed chairlift from Winteregg to Maulerhubel. Although you might have to queue for the cable car from Murren (1,638m) to Birg (2,676m) and Schilthorn (2,970m) at peak periods, the views on the way up and from the Piz Gloria rotating restaurant at 2,970m are absolutely stunning. If skiing in Murren in the low season, you could find yourself riding a cable car alone and one of the attractions of Murren is that even in busy periods it is too small for mass market tourism or to suffer from lift queues and overcrowded pistes.
