Beneath the towering north face of the Eiger, Grindelwald is set in magnificent scenery and offers some great skiing with links to Wengen. Set along a narrow valley with buildings in a mainly traditional chalet style, the resort has great skiing and is suitable even for non skiers. Beginners can enjoy the nursery slope just above the village, and great long runs available served by the railway to Kleine Scheidegg.

Grindelwald has ideal intermediate runs, with nearly all the runs from Kleine Scheidegg being long blues or gentle reds. At the top of the Lauberhorn lift there are some more challenging pistes, for advanced skiers; the Lauberhorn World Cup downhill, or the Black Rock Run, which starts at the base of the Eiger.

The Jungfrau ski region covers 213 kms of pistes with relaxing runs on the First to challenging routes down the Kleine Scheidegg mountain. Experts can try the famous Lauberhorn World Cup downhill piste and the fearsome Black Rock run from the base of the Eiger. The areas is strongly recommended for groups with non skiers, as the area has many winter walks and access to the Jungfraujoch train, which runs to the glacier viewing area.

Grindelwald offers a great variety of bars and clubs, from quiet and informal cafes to lively bars, with two really standing out; the Espresso bar and the Gepsi bar, but our favourite bar for apres ski is at the Eiger hotel.Grindelwald after skiing is not for those seeking wild parties, but it can be relatively lively!
