The winter resort of Malbun
Malbun lies behind the southern Alpine ridge in a small side-valley of the Saminatal Valley. Thanks to its snow-sure slopes, the resort is famous throughout Liechtenstein and beyond.
Originally inhabited only during the summer months, when it was known for its invigorating mountain air, the resort of Malbun was created in the early 1960s with the construction of the first hotels and a chairlift connecting the village with the Sareis ridge at the top of the mountain.
The 1970s saw rapid development, with further hotels being build and new draglifts being installed to serve the improved network of pistes. Soon Malbun was known beyond the borders of Liechtenstein, not least thanks to the sporting success of its Alpine skiing stars.
In recent years the lifts have been updated and a new concept has been developed, including the creation of more slopes. The resort's long-standing commitment to providing services and facilities meeting the needs of families was recognised by the Swiss Tourist Board with its Family Destination Award.
Today Malbun is a successful, modern and family-friendly winter-sports resort offering 23km of pistes to suit all abilities. Three modern chairlifts - including one with heated seats and a retractable cover - as well as a two-man drag lift transport guests up to an altitude of 2000 metres above sea level. The Malbi Park Kinderland is located in the centre of the ski area and is the ideal place for children to take their first turns on snow or improve their technique.
