Stunning views from the Fronalpstock


The car-free winter sports resort of Stoos offers family-friendly prices, a broad selection of runs and breathtaking views.

Eclectic, sporty, down-to-earth, enjoyable and richly endowed with views – the Schwyz winter paradise is just 40 minutes from Lucerne. As soon as you board the world’s steepest funicular railway to access the little plateau high above the Muota Valley, you know you can relax and enjoy yourself. It offers 35 varied kilometres of runs, snowshoeing trails offering varying degrees of challenge, an airboard and a sledge run, a children’s ski area (Fröneli's winterland) complete with magic carpet (free of charge), idyllic cross-country ski trails, winter walking trails and lots more.

Tip: value-for-money family day passes available!
