Lauterbrunnen, Skiing & S...

Downhill action in Lauterbrunnen itself is extremely limited and very dependant on the conditions. However, on occasion it is possible to slide back down to the valley from Murren following the same route as the famous Inferno downhill ski race. Riders more often than not have to head for the neighbouring resorts of Wengen or Murren before they hit ride-able pistes though. Lauterbrunnen may not suit those seeking skiing or snowboarding convenience. However, it is a great location for those that like to go to different ski areas each day and don’t mind a bit of effort getting there. After all, all anyone need do to tap the great snowsport resource of the Jungfrau region is hop on a lift or mountain train.

The Jungfrau ski area is ideally suited to intermediate riders who can roam freely all over the area on the sixty red and blue runs. Some of these runs are pretty long the longest being recorded at 8km. From certain mountain restaurants you can view climbers scaling the infamous north face of the Eiger.

With twenty-two runs graded difficult by the local tourist office you would think you were headed for paradise. However, not everyone will find all of these runs a huge challenge. That said neither Wengen or Murren are particularly pedestrian either and both offer some interesting off-piste routes which are easily accessed. Also with a mountain-scape surround as is you would be right in thinking that there was some rewarding touring to be had here too.
