Rosswald: a family-friendly, car-free zone

Located above Brig, the Rosswald sun terrace is a family-friendly ski resort with guaranteed snow in winter. In the summer and autumn months, the sunny mountain ridge is in a prominent position.
It is the starting point for hikes in the surrounding mountains. The views over the Rhone Valley, flanked by the Pennine Alps and the Bernese Alps, are worth the trip alone. You will find a playground with a bathing lake at the summit station – perfect for escaping the summer heat. In winter, the playground is used as a kid’s park with a ‘magic carpet’ conveyor belt for the little ones.

Take the cable car up to Rosswald

In winter, Rosswald can only be reached by cable car. In summer, the single-lane mountain road, which has limited spots for moving aside to let other vehicles pass, can be used to reach the central car park (subject to a charge). But we recommend taking the cable car in summer as well. Alpe Rosswald is a car-free zone. Rosswald has been a member of Magic Pass since March 2022.


There are a number of hikes to choose from on the Rosswald mountain ridge. The three circular trails allow you to discover different corners of the alp, while the ‘36er Weg’ trail and the summit route that heads towards Folluhorn take you along former military trails. The route leading to the Bortelhütte hut guarantees a thoroughly enjoyable day of hiking.


You have the choice between holiday rentals, a hotel and group accommodation at Alpe Rosswald. Many chalets are located right on the edge of the slope – ski-in and ski-out is the order of the day here.
