Belalp Witches' Run

For one week in January, everything at the Blatten-Belalp ski resort revolves around the theme of witches. The Belalp Hexe is a week-long event that reaches its undisputed climax on Saturday with the Belalp Hexenabfahrt. In the run-up to the big witch descent, however, various other races are held during the week and with the Witches Nights and the Witches' Children's Festival, the spectators are also offered a comprehensive supporting programme.

The Belalp Witch goes back to an old Valais legend. According to this legend, a witch once wreaked havoc here. In memory of these old times, the Belalp Witch Downhill was created almost 40 years ago.

Be part of it and let yourself be enchanted by the mystical atmosphere on the Belalp!
