Surrounded by the imposing mountain scenery of the UNESCO World Heritage Site with no less than 40 four-thousand-metre peaks, the Lauchernalp ski area is located in the Lötschental. The south-facing plateau of Lauchernalp is easy to reach from Wiler. It is made for quiet days in the snow. Skiers of all levels feel just as comfortable here as winter hikers and cross-country skiers. From the Hockenhorn ridge at 3111 m there is a suitable downhill run for everyone. Freeriders will find an extensive freeride area with numerous runs on Lauchernalp.

Ski/Snowboard

The terrain at Lauchernalp is ideal for families and skiing beginners. But more experienced skiers also get their money's worth on a total of 18 km of black pistes. From the highest point of the ski area, the Hockenhorngrat at 3111 m, slopes of all levels of difficulty open up. Novice skiers take the Gandeggbahn to Lauchneralp, where there are many blue slopes. For freestylers, there is a fun park on the Gandegg with various tables, rails and jumps. Starting from the Hockenhorngrat, there are also various deep-snow runs that lead either back to Lauchernalp or into the surrounding valleys.

Nordic/Winter hiking

Friends of the Nordic discipline can indulge in cross-country skiing on a total of 24 kilometres of trails. One of the most beautiful routes leads to Fafleralp, a nostalgic alpine village with a 350-year-old pilgrimage church and a hotel that is a good starting point for skiing and snowshoe hikes. Near Kippel there is also a night trail about 1.5 km long waiting for late starters or those who haven't had enough of sports in the snow during the day. Those who want to learn how to cross-country ski can take a course at the Lötschental Cross-Country Centre.
