3) Skiing in the Grindelwald ski areaThe balanced mix of wide blue as well as more challenging red and black slopes is very successful in the Grindelwald ski area. While the easier runs predominate on the local mountain First, there are even more difficult runs available at Kleine Scheidegg / Männlichen. The young skiers are looked after in the Bodmi Arena near the valley station in Grindelwald. Here the little ones learn the first steps on the boards in a playful way using conveyor belts, plate lifts and funny obstacles. More experienced skiers who are looking for a special challenge should not miss the World Cup run on the Lauberhorn. The world-famous slalom slope, on which the Lauberhorn race is held every year, is located above Wengen and can be reached with the Innerwengen chairlift. The route leads down over 4.2 km to Wengen. Another valley run is on the First and leads to Grindelwald Grund. The real cracks get their money’s worth on the descent on the Eiger glacier below the Jungfraujoch. The steep slope has a gradient of over 70 percent.
4) Expert evaluationWith a high level of snow reliability, a wide range of fun sports and service, the Grindelwald ski area receives a solid 3.4 out of 5 stars from our experts.
5) Off-piste activitiesThe numerous leisure activities begin during the day of skiing with a toboggan ride in the ski area, for example on the 15 km long toboggan run on the First. A total of five toboggan runs are located around Grindelwald. A highlight is the “Eiger Run” between Alpiglen and Brandegg, which is illuminated in the evening. The routes are partially branched with each other, so that you can get to Grindelwald from First on different paths. Around the First and Männlichen there are also wonderful winter hikes. Several marked winter hiking trails lead to the alpine pastures, from where you can start the descent on the sledge. It is therefore advisable to take a driving device with you. The big SnowpenAir festival has been held for many years at the season finale in spring. Regional and international music stars appear on the large concert stage, which is being set up in the middle of the ski area on the Kleine Scheidegg.
6) Places in the Grindelwald ski areaThe focal point of the two parts of the ski area and the main town in the basin is Grindelwald . The glacier village with around 3,700 inhabitants is picturesquely situated at the foot of the famous Eiger north face and directly on the slopes of the local mountain First. This makes it the perfect starting point for winter sports and leisure activities in the region. The place looks back on a long tradition, so it was the first in the Bernese Oberland to open up to winter tourism. The James Bond film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” was shot here as early as the 1960s. The Lütschine glacier river babbles through the valley and is fed by the two Gindelwald glaciers that reach just before the village. The glacier gorge is a popular destination for Grindelwald guests in the summer months (open until October!). On the other side of the valley of the ski area is the “Jungfrau village” Wengen , which is best known for the World Cup race on the Lauberhorn. The Lauberhorn race is one of the most difficult slalom races in the FIS World Cup. With the Wengeralpbahn you can comfortably travel from Grindelwald via Kleine Scheidegg to Wengen and Lauterbrunnen.
7) Directions to the Grindelwald ski areaBy car, the route runs from Bern or Lucerne to Interlaken, or from the south over the Simplon Pass and Lötschberg car train to Interlaken. From there, just follow the signs on Grindelwaldstraße until you reach the village after about 20 km. You can also travel by train via Bern or Lucerne to Interlaken-Ost. Change here to the Bernese Oberland Railway, which goes directly to Grindelwald. The nearest airports are Bern (approx. 70 km) and Zurich (approx. 150 km).
