The altitude of the car-free winter sport area Melchsee-Frutt ranges from 1080 m to 2255 m. This high valley, with sunny winter hiking trails and cross-country ski tracks, is flanked by two ski areas: Balmeregghorn and Erzegg, with broad sunny slopes and the freestyle park Steeper slopes run from Mount Bonistock down to Stöckalp, with a difference in altitude of over 1000 metres. The 8-kilometre slope to Stöckalp is a must for sledgers. In Fruttli Park, kids can enjoy themselves on the magic carpet and ski carousel.
