Daily operation with the Bad Ragaz gondola lift!


The early bird gets the best slopes! On selected days in the winter season, take exclusive advantage of the freshly groomed slopes at sunrise with Early Bird skiing.

The gondola lift in Bad Ragaz operates from 6:30 am to 7:00 am and takes you to Pardiel at sunrise. This is where your early bird ski adventure begins. As the sun rises, you can use the Laufböden chairlift several times to enjoy the freshly groomed and untouched slopes to the full on the subsequent descents. Be there when the mountain awakens and don't miss out on this exclusive nature and snow experience in a class of its own!

After a sumptuous breakfast buffet in the Panoramarestaurant Edelweiss, Berggasthaus Zanuz and Laufbodenstübli (breakfast), you can either continue your day's skiing (day ticket or season or annual pass), linger on Pardiel or return to the valley by cable car.

For an optimal day of skiing, we recommend purchasing a day ticket at the Early Bird rate. This gives you two hours of exclusive skiing on pristine slopes and the unique experience of being there when the mountain awakens, in addition to the regular price of a day ticket.
