JUNGFRAU SKI REGION

https://www.jungfrau.ch/en-gb/

jungtop

Two valleys, three mountain ranges and around 206 kilometres of perfectly prepared pistes. In the Jungfrau ski region snow fans can enjoy activities of all types and be in their element. The winter paradise by the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau offers skiers and snowboarders everything their hearts desire: gentle slopes, steep drops, snow and fun parks, racing tracks and powder parties.

Kleine Scheidegg/Männlichen – Grindelwald – Wengen

The Kleine Scheidegg/Männlichen ski resort is the largest in the Bernese Oberland and in the Jungfrau region. While skiing, you can enjoy the spectacular panorama of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau (UNESCO World Heritage Site). From Grindelwald, a cog railway leads up to the Kleine Scheidegg and a gondola lift leads up to the Männlichen.

   

   

    

Mürren-Schilthon

Pleasure runs and steep escarpments for skiers, adrenalin rushes for snowboarders and magical snow for winter hikers: Mürren Schilthorn, the highest altitude winter sports area in the Bernese Oberland, meets every desire of the winter sports fan. A treat is available on the other side of the slopes – Schilthorn is the most varied freeride paradise in the Jungfrau Ski Region.

                         

     

Other Activities

FIRST FLYER WINTER

The golden eagle swoops down on its prey at over 300 kilometres per hour. In horizontal flight, the dove can reach up to 120 kilometres per hour. And humans? Thanks to the Tyrolean “First Flyer”, they can compete with the fastest birds. Perfectly secured in the stable harness, 4 people whiz along the 800 metre long steel cable from First to Schreckfeld at up to 84 kilometres per hour. In some places, they hover approximately 50 metres above the snow. Even the golden eagle would be envious.

Prices: Weather permitting, this is free during the winter season for holders of a valid Jungfrau or Grindelwald-Wengen Sportpass (Sportpass valid for 1 day or longer)!

Flight only without rail ticket, for one flight: CHF 29.- Adults  –  CHF 22.- Children up to 15 years. The Junior Card is valid.

Sledging

 Sledge trails are in Mürren / Kl. Scheidegg / Sulwald – Isenfluh – Lauterbrunnen. Marked with purple.

FOX Run

4.5 kilometre sledging run right next to the Lauberhorn descent: There’s nowhere else that sledgers come as close to racing drivers as here. On the challenging, carefully prepared route they can drive as tactically as racing drivers too. Which is the best racing line? How can the swing be better exploited? If you think like a fox on the Fox Run, you will hit the right tempo on the Wengernalp from the start and reach the finish at Wengen train station like a shot. Just to go back up again and do it even better next time.

Winterhiking

For non skiers, or take a day off from the slopes. Try the many well marked trails from easy to just beautiful!!!! Go ahead, after slaving away in your office all year…

Movie fan?

Visit the George Lazenby’s only outing as Bond sees 007 tracking Blofeld to his lair in the Swiss mountains on a peak called Piz Gloria. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service was filmed on the Schilthorn mountain in Switzerland’s Bernese Oberland, where Blofeld’s ‘allergy clinic’ is now a revolving restaurant that has kept the Piz Gloria name and capitalizes on its Bond fame. Visitors can see an interactive Bond exhibition, watch clips from the film in a mountaintop cinema and pass by messages and hand-prints from the film’s stars on a 007 Walk of Fame. Blofeld’s ‘allergy clinic’ is now a tourist attraction. 

Star Wars - Alderaan Mountains
You can also check Grindelwald where the movie Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith was filmed. For the backdrops on planet Alderaan, actual photography of the mountains of Grindelwald was digitally enhanced.
Touching the Void (2003) – Though a true story of a climbing accident in the Peruvian Andes, much of this film was actually shot in Switzerland, again in the beutiful Jungfrau region.

Downhill Racer,  starring a young Robert Redford, was also filmed all over the Jungfrau area.“the best movie ever made about sports – without really being about sports at all”

Lauterbrunnen

Lauterbrunnen is situated in the middle of the Jungfrau Ski Region! You are only a short train ride away (included in the skipass) from some great skiing! There is a beginners and childrens slope with a small lift in Lauterbrunnen! (At Camping Jungfrau). The train station is within walking distance, only 4 mins away. A “plus”, by staying in Lauterbrunnen, the choice is yours, Männlichen/Kl. Scheidegg or Winteregg/Mürren/Schilthorn. How lucky can you get?
