Why Ski Disentis?

In an isolated nook of the Graubunden (Switzerland) lies the small village of Disentis. The warmth of the people make up for the village’s lack of typical Swiss coziness and public bus services run to take skiers to and from the nearby ski gondola on the edge of town. There are a few stores and a dozen or so restaurants, serving local specialities, aside from this there is little to see a part from the ancient local abbey on the hillside and a beautiful little church town. All in all Disentis feels less like a traditional Swiss ski resort and more like a working town that gets busy for a few months a year in the winter. 

Skiing in Disentis

Disentis offers good skiing especially for intermediates and beginners and the resort is open from December to May. The Swiss ski resort has 18 individual pistes some of which reach above 2500m meaning skiing and snowboarding is assured throughout the season. The resort offers 4 black runs equalling 20km, 8 red runs equalling 30km and 3 blue runs equalling 10km. It has 168km of downhill pistes and 10 ski lifts able to uplift 12,600 skiers /snowboarders per hour, the highest lift reaching 2850m. The maximum vertical in the resort is 1700m, the lowest piste and the resort altitude both lie at 1500m. There are some excellent snowboarding opportunities including a snow park. Altogether there are 34km of cross country skiing with trails passing through forests and offering some outstanding panoramic views.

Location and Access

Disentis is about three hours by train from Zurich this is by far the easiest way of accessing the resort. However for a much more scenic and dramatic approach you should fly to Geneva and then take the 5 and a half hour train ride on the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, which uses the same tracks as the famed Glacier Express beween ST Mortiz and Zermatt.


There are only 8 hotels in the village and around 15 restaurants. The largest hotel which has the most amenities is the Disentiserhof, about a 10 minute shuttle ride from the ski lifts. The 157 apartment hotel and restaurant has an indoor pool, sauna and a free standing five level childrens play castle. The hotel also picks up families and groups of more than 2 at airports in Milan and Zurich for no extra charge. Alternatively the Hotel Cucagna has one of the towns few bars and also a hostel which bunks 4 beds to a room.

What to Pay

The town’s hostel starts at 30 francs per room for 1 night and the Hotel Cucagna has double rooms starting from 250 francs per night. Disentiserhof offers double rooms ncluding breakfast starting from 390 francs per night in high season and 230 francs per night for the same in low season, both prices include lift tickets. If you choose to stay at a hotel that does not offer ski passes within the price you can expect to pay (in CHF), around 49.00 per adult and 32.00 per child for 1 day, a 6 day pass will cost around 229.00 for adults and 154.00 for cildren.
