MEIRINGEN-HASLIBERG RESORT  1060M SUMMIT  2,433M VERTICAL  1,373M SKI AREA  60KM RESORT CHARM Tucked away in a side valley off the northern end of Lake Brienz, half an hour from Interlaken, Haslital has ski slopes to suit all levels, but also some awesome freeriding. Meiringen is best-known as the holiday favourite of Arthur Conan Doyle who ‘killed off’ his sleuth Sherlock Holmes at the Reichenbach Falls. SKI AREA The 60km of pistes includes some good long runs. LIFT SYSTEM From Meiringen, it’s 5 mins by cable car up to the ski area at Hasliberg. OFF-PISTE The Haslital area has a long tradition of ski touring. Skiing down the crevasse-covered Rosenlaui glacier is one of the most thrilling descents in the Alps – on a par with the Vallée Blanche descent in Chamonix. 4% APRES SKI Numerous restaurants and ski bars allow for cosy gatherings and full-on party spirit. WINTER FUN The learners’ area in ‘Skihasliland’ includes a fun area for kids and easy-to-use carpet and rope lifts. For down-time, there’s 25km of winter hiking trails, and two snowshoe routes. The Sherlock Holmes museum is worth a visit, as is the panoramic Alpen Tower restaurant at the top of the Hasliberg. e a s y 3 5 % i n t e r m e d i a t e 6 1 % BESTFOR OFF-PISTEAND FREERIDING 4% BERNRESORTS: MEIRINGEN-HASLIBERG and GSTAAD HASLITALOFFERSSOME AWESOMEFREERIDING // 8
