Very good ski area. Well planned, which causes little queues. The area is very easy to find and it feels easy navigated. The ride is relatively simple, but there are challenges. Off-piste opportunities are quite numerous and they are usually completely untouched.

Very good ski area between the three areas Rideralp, Bettmeralp and Fischeralp. Good pistachio but also very nice off piste. Totally untouched - for people do not know what a pair of fat skis are for something. If you want to go to the top of the gondola lift, you have to put the skis in the snowboard holder - otherwise they will not fit.
Riederalp is a richemansplace - quite hilly backs. (Usual). Around the top at Bettmerhorn (Bettmeralp) you will find a lot of good offpiste - if the season has been good. There is also nice untouched forest hillside a bit down.
Nightlife is also available, although limited to a few pubs and discos such as the Albis Mountain Rock café, Disco Bachtla and Dancing Alpfrieden.
People in the village are quite cash in English, so an advantage is if you can speak up in German. The local dialect is a completely incomprehensible bettmer version of Wallis Swiss.
The village has everything you need - a little shopping and NO CARS. You can meet a transport pistol, so-called pick-up transport. Go there in February. In March it's sloppy in the village. Nice skiing with usually good weather - but watch the clouds for then you will not see anything. Have been there 5 times.
