The Moléson ski resort in canton Fribourg has entered into a unique partnership with the resort of Anzère in canton Valais.

Both resorts have agreed to honour each others ski passes. This will allow holders of season passes at Moléson to ski for three days at Anzère, and vice versa. One-week tickets are valid for one day at the other resort.

Moléson is a small, rural village lying below Moléson mountain – only a few kilometres from the medieval town of Gruyère, famous for its castle and cheese making.

There are 35 kilometres of groomed pistes in Moléson stretching up to 2,000 metres above sea level. There’s an observatory at the top, and its possible to book a weekend in the resort combining skiing and stargazing.

The village of Anzère lies above the Rhone valley close to the large resort of Crans-Montana. Once a week, mulled wine is prepared in a large cauldron in the village square and served by all the restaurants.

Skiers can choose from 40 kilometres of pistes in Anzère, which begin at 1,400 metres above sea level and extend to 2,400. Anzère also offers guided snowshoe walks and a fondue evening followed by a moonlight ski back to the village.
