Gämel (sit ski) fun on the Hoch-Ybrig

Your efforts will pay off. A two-hour walk from Hoch Ybrig Weglosen via a tobogganing and winter hiking path will take you to the Druesberg chalet at the foot of the Druesberg.

There you'll find a cosy chalet atmosphere and can enjoy a delicious fondue. The Hergers, who manage the chalet, will attend to you. Enjoy an adrenalin rush as you descend on an original Druesberger snow gämel. The snow gämel is a type of stool with handles on the side, assembled on a carving ski.
