New 8-person gondola-lift(replaces previous lift) takes you from Saas-Grund to Kreuzboden. A 4-person gondola-lift continues up to Hohsaas. The Hohsaas mountain transport system gives access to a spectacular mountain area in both winter and summer.
In winter more than 100 hectares of groomed, varied pistes and more than 35km of long runs await you. The ski area stretches from 1560m above sea-level in Saas-Grund to 3100m at Hohsaas.

In summer the high-altitude Hohsaas und Kreuzboden area has hiking trails and high-altitude paths with lovely viewpoints where you can see the 18 four-thousand-metre peaks of the Mischabel chain and the Monte-Rosa massif. For the start of the winter season 2005/2006 a new gondola lift, with cabins for 8 people, will transport you from Kreuzboden to Hohsaas. The new system is very similar to the first section. Gondolas for 8 people, with 2 rows of seats have been chosen. This will allow easy entrance and exit and the usual seating. Top and bottom terminals have been developed as modern, standard satellite stations.
