Toggenburg Ski Resort
Providing a variety of trails for the novice to the expert skier, there are 27 trails across this scenic mountain with a unique slope side restaurant.
Toggenburg Mountain first opened back in 1953. Founders Eugene Hickey and Harry Ehle (later Frank Mueller replacing Ehle) started it all with leasing a farm that raised goats. Yes, goats.
So, the founders named the ski mountain Toggenburg, after the Toggenburg region of Switzerland, famous for creating the Toggenburg breed of milk goat.
In 1956, Toggenburg was basically one large open slope. In 1975 the original lodge was built (it was destroyed in a 1988 fire) and as time went on, Toggenburg grew to 10 trails. Some of those original trails still exist today.
Today, Toggenburg has expanded to 27 trails with 5 lifts. Trail names offer a theme and tribute to its namesake like “Oh My Goat” or “Gotcher Goat.” Toggenburg offers a full ski school, ski shop and rental shop.
Then there’s the Foggy Goggle Restaurant where you don’t have to be a skier to enjoy the impressive menu and high-quality caliber of food offered.
Toggenburg is now under the ownership of Marc Stemerman and John Meier, owners of Greek Peak Mountain Resort. Toggenburg season pass holders can now enjoy added benefits at Greek Peak Mountain Resort with discounts at Hope Lake Lodge, Cascades Indoor Water Park, the Adventure Center and free access to the Nordic Center to name a few.
