Grindelwald is an attractive mountain village with stunning views from both the village and the slopes which is set beneath the mighty Eiger mountain. Grindelwald isn’t as special as the neighbouring resorts of Murren and Wengen but it still has a charming feel. The mountains in this area of Switzerland must be some of the most scenic anywhere.
The village is located at 1035m, with a ski range between 945m and 2970m. The full area covers 213km of pistes.
A regular grumble from first-time visitors to Grindelwald, is the time it takes to reach the skiing, the gondola takes 30 minutes and the old cog railway track even longer, but regular visitors seem to take this in their stride. Once on the slopes the lifts are fast and queues only seem to be an issue at peak times and after fresh snowfall. The weekends can be busy.
The slopes are best suited to intermediate skiers with lots of long blues and gentle reds. Advanced skiers won’t find too many challenges on the pistes but the off-piste should provide enough entertainment. For beginners, the best nursery slopes are located on Kleine Scheidegg, it is high and snow sure and the progression slopes are long and gentle.
