Ski lift in Obwerwil (BL)??

Just spotted this on the j2ski website:

http://www.j2ski.com/ski_resorts/Swi...d/Oberwil.html

I can't possibly think where this ski-lift could be in oberwil, does it exist?

(not that there will be any snow there ATM, just curious that's all)

Thanks

There are several Oberwils in Switzerland and with location 'Basel' you live near the wrong one.
Have a look at the little map and you'll see where the skilift is. It's out Spiez / Zweisimmen way, in canton Berne.

Well I don't care much really one way or the other but last time I was in Oberwil BL it wasn't at 900m and there wasn't much near there at 1550m.
Skiing in Oberwil

Oberwil, Switzerland (900m to 1550m)

You're both right -- both Oberwils are shown on the dreadful map provided by that webpage.
But the ski resort is clearly not in Baselland.

There are good reasons why people don't want to end up in Oberwil, Zug.

2h35m from Oberwil, BL.

Basel-Land could do with some ski resorts though (and some snow and 2000m+ mountains). Maybe this is why airlines keep advertising Basel as "the gateway to the Alps"

Lol, I thought it was a mistake which is why I was so puzzled!

I've emailed them to let them know they got the wrong Oberwil!

Cheers.
