Grindelwald, Skiing & Sno...

Grindelwald, part of the greater Jungfrau Top Ski Region offers a wealth of snowsport from the doorstep that extends as far as the neighbouring resort of Wengen. From the slopes of Oberjoch on one side of the village to the slopes of Kleine Scheidegg on the other and beyond down toward Wengen there is plenty of action to be had locally. But from Lauterbrunnen, linked by mountain railway to Wengen access is gained to another famous resort, Murren, also covered on the Jungfrau region lift pass which extends to a total of 213 kilometers of marked piste.

Beginner

ski rating

On the village edge beginners will find a couple of slopes suitable for those first tantalizing if not petrifying attempts to slide down a mountain on a plank of wood. Overcoming that with the aid of a sympathetic instructor you should soon be cruising along on the blue runs above Grindelwald and neighbouring Wengen.

Intermediate

ski rating

With an 8 kilometre run back to the village from Oberjoch to start with you’d be right in thinking that this was the right place to be. The good variety of terrain in this region brings intermediates back here time and time again. Take it easy or test yourself. The choice is yours with everything to choose from cruisy blues to testing reds or maybe even a powder chute.

Advanced

ski rating

For the advanced riders who come here the attraction can be linked to the vastness of the available back country. Yes there are several on-piste toughies but the real rewards lie out there away from the tows and train tracks. There are some easily accessible powder runs but much of the really good stuff needs the help of a guide to reach.

Freestyle, Skier and BoarderCross

ski rating

Freestylers should head for the fun park on Oberjoch for all sorts of spills and thrills. Get a few mates together and race down the cross course to get the adrenalin, smiles and banter going.

Touring

ski rating

Grindelwald is a great base for ski and snowboard tourers looking to explore the Jungfrau Mountains. A guide is essential as the area is heavily glaciated and many hidden dangers are concealed below fresh snow.
