Night Skiing in Switzerland

Back when I lived in the Seattle area, I would regularly go skiing after work. There was a fairly large group of folks that would have ski racing teams, and this was a good deal of fun.

So, here in Switzerland, what are the options for night skiing?

So far I've found the following
  • Flumserberg (Friday nights)
  • Pizol (Friday nights)
  • Brigels (Thursday nights)
  • Lenzerheide (Friday nights)
  • Braunwald (Wednesday nights)

Most of these only have one slope lighted up, but it is a good start.

Anyone else know of other places to go night skiing here in Switzerland (or in nearby parts of the neighboring countries?). They have to have lighted slopes. Moonlight skiing doesn't count.

That seems to be a site that has a bit of info on it:

Now, all we need to do is start up a racing league like this one:

Linga, near Chatel, in the Portes du Soleil, has night skiing on Thursday from 7:30-9:90. I don't recommend this for beginners, but if you are intermediate or above, it is awesome.

Re: Night Skiing in Switzerland

I'll add a few more--

Zweisimmen (Rinderberg)
Gstaad (Wispile)

both have night skiing on certain nights of the week. Visit Gstaad tourism site to see the calendar.

Assuming you wouldn't mind going into France as it is the closent decent skiing from GE, I last recall there is night skiing in Les Gets, Les Houches, and perhaps Megeve.

Re: Night Skiing in Switzerland

This is what I learned today:

I had no idea this was an option - delighted with myself.
I hope this is news to other skiers or snowboarders.
