The beautiful northern slopes of Alpelenhörnlis promise the finest powder all winter long.

From the valley station of the Titlisexpress you first climb up the blue slope to Untertrübsee. Pass the bottom station of the Untertrübsee cable car and follow the road under the Stöck-Alpelen material cable car in the direction of Gletti. The route runs for the most part through the alpine forest along the summer hiking trail up to the Arni-Alpelen at the mountain station of the material cableway. From here, one climbs in a large right-hand bend in a southerly direction to the Alpelenhörnli (2,024 m), already visible from a distance.
