Ski tickets to include free public transport services this winter season

Tue, 17. Dec. 2019

Thanks to the collaboration of a range of partners, public transport is included in the winter sport tickets.

The municipality of Saanen is collaborating with partner municipalities, tourism organisations in the Saanenland, Obersimmental and the Pays-d’Enhaut, as well as the MOB, the PostBus AG and the cable car tariff association to offer free public transport in combination with skiing for the coming winter season.

During the ski season, which runs from 14 December 2019 to 5 April 2020, ski passes (4-hour tickets aren’t included in the offer) are also valid on the public transport on the Rossinière-Matten route and on the bus lines in the Saanenland:

  • Schönried-Gstaad-Gsteig-Col du Pillon (not including Les Diablerets);
  • Gstaad-Lauenen;
  • Gstaad-Turbach.

The only requirement when using public transport – regardless of whether you’re going skiing, walking, travelling to work or to school – is that you need to show a ski pass (season pass/day pass, etc.).

This service is also being provided to help combat air pollution in the region. Public authorities hope the local population and guests make good use of public transport during the upcoming winter season.

That is a great idea and offers a really sensible solution. We always use the ski bus instead of driving as it’s much more convenient.

New bridge

Some readers may still remember when the old bridge was built in 1967. It had to be renovated for the first time in 1981. A recent inspection showed that it was in a bad condition. Only part of the old foundation could be reused for the new bridge.
