It is barely an hour by train from Zurich (90km away) to Unterterzen, via Ziegelbrücke, and the fast gondola adjacent to the station takes you up to one of Switzerland's best kept secrets, Flumserberg. Sadly it is no secret to the inhabitants of Zürich, so at weekends this place does get busy, but during the rest of the week some of the most varied slopes in Switzerland are virtually deserted. With stunning views over the Walensee, flexible accommodation options and proximity to Zurich Airport, this resort really is a perfect destination for a mid-week break.
Best of the Slopes at Flumserberg
The Leist is the best and most challenging descent. There is also a 7k run from Maschgenkamm to Tannenheim.
Getting to Flumserberg by Train
The best destination to access the downhill slopes by public transport in this ski area is Unterterzen. The station is adjacent to the gondola base station.
