A highlight is the 12 km long run from Weissfluh to Küblis with an altitude difference of 2,034 m! Furthermore, numerous first class freeride areas, illuminated pistes, and challenging black runs for pros are also to be found. Not only that, but the area is also a paradise for snowboarders: national and international competitions take place in the region's fun parks.

Especially worth mentioning is the Jakobshorn - a snowboard Mecca for years - with the Nidecker Monster Pipe.

The Pischa area offers almost exclusively freeride terrain and is the largest of its kind in Switzerland.
