Intermediates skiing in Wengen

The full area Jungfrau Top Ski Region ski pass covers 213kms of pistes, providing almost unlimited scope for intermediates on a range of relaxing runs or more testing routes down the Kleine Scheidegg mountain. Highlights include the 8km run from Oberjoch down to Grindelwald and the powder slopes from the Eigergletscher to Wengernalp.

Advanced skiing in Wengen

Experts can try the famous Lauberhorn World Cup downhill piste, or the fearsome Black Rock run which starts at the base of the Eiger. If you can cope with any more then there is the famous black, almost vertical ‘Kanonenrohr’ in Mürren.

Snowboarding in Wengen

There are two half-pipes in the region, a jumpers corner in Wengen, a terrrain park at Schreckfeld and excellent runs for beginners.

Look out for the 78th Lauberhorn ski race in January 2008.
