Skiing in the Jungfrau region of Switzerland is a stunningly beautiful experience! With two valleys, three mountain ranges and 211 kilometres of pisted ski runs, snow fans can enjoy activities of all types. New for 2023 is one ski pass accross all three mountains, and the direct train connection between Zürich airport and Interlaken where you can take the train without hassle or changing connections. The one ski lift pass will allow skiing/boarding in the other Jungfrau Region ski resorts of Lauterbrunnen, Mürren and Wengen. Grindelwald is directly linked by a lift to the ski areas of Wengen.
The lively village of Grindelwald has 19th Century wooden chalets, a classic of the Swiss Alps. As most of the slopes are located between 1,600 and 2,300m above sea level, snow cover is usually good throughout the season.
