Skiing record in the Zurich Oberland

Raphael Müller has an ambitious goal: he and his team want to ski the longest lift of all ski areas in the Zurich Oberland in one day. According to the former ski racer's calculations, they should be able to make it by 5:15 p.m., starting at 7:30 a.m.

An attempt to set a record for anyone

The Zurich Oberland has more than 12 ski areas of which the longest lift in the canton is in Steg, the shortest is the 170 m pony lift in Wildberg and the most popular are the lifts in the Atzmännig ski area.
