KI RESORT REGIONS IN SWITZERLAND

Jungfrau Ski Region

Eiger above Grindelwald Ski RunThis area was virtually where alpine skiing was born, with a diverse terrain and a number of pretty villages to base with a Jungfrau Top Region Ski Pass. The full scope of the Jungfrau Ski Region covers over a hundred miles of pistes, with an almost unlimited variety for intermediate skier on a range of relaxing runs or more challenging routes down the Kleine Scheidegg mountain. Highlights include the 4 mile run from Oberjoch down to Grindelwald and the powder slopes from the Eigergletscher to Wengernalp. Expert level can try the famed Lauberhorn World Cup Downhill course, or the adrenaline rush Black Rock run, starting at the base of the Eiger, or for the biggest thrill, if you dare, the almost vertical 'Kanonenrohr' in Mürren.

Grindelwald

Grindelwald is a postcard perfect resort in the Jungfrau region at the base of the famed imposing Eiger North face. Very popular with British and American visitors, Grindelwald is reached by the Jungfrau and Wengeralpbahn railway from Interlaken Ost. Grindelwald has a cosmopolitan ambience with a stunning mountain back drop. There are beginner slopes in Grindelwald and just above the resort, including the new blue run at Oberjoch, and a 'slow speed zone'. Quick progress can be made with lessons from the excellent English speaking Ski Schools. The indoor Sports Center offers a pool with a Wellness Center for sauna and massage, with a rink for curling and ice skating. For families Grindelwald has an English speaking kindergarten at the Bodmi nursery slopes and in January, the annual Ice Sculpture garden.

Lauterbrunnen

The pretty village of Lauterbrunnen is at the center of a gorge of waterfalls, below the mountain villages of Wengen and Mürren. Lauterbrunnen is the rail connection point between the Jungfrau railway from Interlaken and the Wengeralpbahn and Murrenbahn lines to the higher villages. Lauterbrunnen offers a convenient central point for easy access to the entire Jungfrau ski area and the links to the Jungfraujoch Railway to the “Top of Europe” scenic excursion and the Schilthorn Aerial Cableway to the Piz Gloria. You can even return to the village from Murren on skis, via the longest run in the area, 7 miles from the Schilthorn to Lauterbrunnen.

Wengen

Wengen is the carless village at the end of the Wengeralp cog railway ideal for families. There are beginner slopes in Wengen with an English speaking ski school. When the basic skills have been sharpened, graduate to the Klein Scheidegg, up the Wengeralpbahn line.
