Lauchernalp is an awesome ski area! Situated on the mountain ridge between canton Bern and canton Wallis (Valais) it provides tons of good powder. The terrain allows almost 2000m of free powder fall (if there is snow cover till in the valley). Make sure you are there super early on good days. The resort is well known to be a powder mecca! And the locals are early birds!

Paradise Found at Lauchernalp

Powderhounds Europe13/01/2018
Lauchernalp in the Lötschental is Powderhounds paradise found. Why you ask?

Top elevation of 3111m, nearly 1700m of skiable vert (last run skied it top to bottom – 10km+), fresh snow, first tracks ‘crowd’ of at least 15 people, Tschäggättä everywhere, glorious powder skiing on and off piste, delicious lunch in the superb dining areas at the Zudili panorama bar and restaurant, chatted with suitably bemused land exceedingly friendly locals, experienced a 'zero crowd on the slopes' phenomenon after lunch. Strategically placed yurts near the lifts were perfect for liquid fuel and warmth. Wandered the laneways of the village of Wiler at the end of the valley run, looking into ancient hay barns with lots of cows and beautiful houses. Took the bus and train back to Brig (they were on time and perfectly coordinated, of course). Why don’t all trains have ski racks! Cracking visit.

Perhaps next time (and there will be a next time) we will actually see the mountain. It is supposed to be beautiful up there…….

Blizzard conditions and extreme avalanche danger were a blessing and a curse during our visit to Lauchernalp (and indeed the entire Valais). Photography was near impossible but we got a great sense of the ski resorts potential. Face shots on piste after lunch is always a good indication of a wonderful ski hill for Powderhounds!

Aside from the Powderhounds delight at skiing deep powder, facilities and trails for all levels of skier are available, making Lauchernalp accessible for everyone.
