Southwest of Zurich and southeast of Bern, the Sörenberg ski area has 53km of pistes served by 17 lifts accessing a maximum descent of 1200m. This ski area is popular with daytrippers coming down from Zurich and is ideal beginner and intermediate snowboarders. The best Soerenberg snowboarding is normally found between the months of January through March.
The Sörenberg ski area is spread wide along a ridge and is accessed by eight parking lots. It has a slightly odd layout of parallel lifts accessing the long ridge. Most of the laps will be of around 500m vertical descent. For more challenging lines, the best lift is the furthest up valley from the Schonenboden cable car base lift up to the Brienzer Rothorn summit. The lines off Brienzer Rothorn offer the most vertical descent and the most steep lines. There are also several off-piste freeriding lines, though they are best explored with an experience guide.
• Family-friendly ski area.
• Intermediates paradise.
• Inexpensive ski lift pass.
• Crowded on weekends.
• Odd lift layout.
• Limited base area services.
To reach Sörenberg by air, fly into Zurich International Airport (ZRH). Take the train through downtown Zurich to connect to Schupfheim. Then take the bus to Sörenberg.
Overall, Sorenberg is the 50th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 87 snowboarding resorts in Switzerland.
