Under the mighty Eiger and Jungfrau mountains, this is a top alpine region. 213km of prepared pistes, amazing scenery and plenty of sunshine make this an exceptional location for winter sports. The network of 45 lifts guarantees uninterrupted enjoyment of 64 interlinked runs.
The Kleine Scheidegg area provides endless variety for those wanting an exhilarating experience. From challenging blacks beneath the Eiger’s north face for experts to easy blues through winding tree-lined paths for beginners. This is an exceptional ski area. With the Wengen/Lauberhorn World Cup held here each year, it is a favourite snowsport resort for many!
For many years we have found Lauterbrunnen to be perfectly placed for also exploring the pistes above the picturesque village of Mürren. From Mürren the lift system provides a full variety of runs, rising to the famous and demanding James Bond Schilthorn black run that starts amidst stunning views at 2,971m. With a 2,171m descent all the way back to Lauterbrunnen, this is the route of the world famous Inferno Race. This 15km course carves through tricky ‘S’ bends and snow-covered woodlands. The winning competitors take just 15 minutes for this descent but some of us may need a little longer!
From our chalet in Lauterbrunnen there are a wide variety of winter walks as well as the chance to travel through the Eiger to the highest railway station in Europe - the world famous Jungfraujoch.
