Southeast of Zurich and west of Chur, the Obersaxen Mundaun ski area has 30+ pistes totalling 120km that are served by 18 lifts accessing a maximum descent of 1,100m. This ski area is popular with beginner and intermediate snowboarders.
The Obersaxen-Mundaun ski area is located southwest of the town of Ilanz. It is slightly up on a plateau and accessible via ski bus. There are several base areas including Sasolas, Valata, Misanenga, Chummenbuhl, Meierhof and Vella. While snowboarding here, watch out for the runs off Piz-Sezner summit (#46/#47) -- some lead to Areass with no return lift.
After a long morning of snowboarding, try the Berghutte Piz Mundaun, Restaurant Wali and Berggasthaus Triel. And, for apres ski, check out the Sternenbar.
To reach Obersaxen Mundaun by air, fly into Zurich International Airport (ZRH). Take the train south through downtown Zurich and connect to Ilanz. In Ilanz, take the bus to Obersaxen Meierhof Talstation.
Tip - If you are planning to snowboard the Obersaxen area for a week, you may want the Surselva Safari ski pass which also allows snowboarding at Brigels-Waltensburg, which is across the valley.
Overall, Obersaxen Mundaun is the 40th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 80 snowboarding resorts in Switzerland.
