As a ski area, the Jungfrau Region lacks
for nothing. The aforementioned spectacular mountains The Eiger, The
Mönch and The Jungfrau reach to just about 4,000 m and provide
a spectacular backdrop for some of the most extensive and varied skiing
The whole range is connected
by the trains of the Jungfrau region which originate in Interlaken
and terminate at the Jungfraujoch, almost 4,000 m higher. When
visiting here for a ski holiday any of the featured resorts will
do, as the railway system we spoke of runs from each of them.
The skiing is suited to all grades of skiing abilities, with
novices able to find suitable terrain in and around most of the
villages mentioned. Experts, even those of world cup standards,
will not find these slopes lacking. However it is the fairly
good recreational skier that will get most enjoyment out of the
region. If you want to ski the whole area you should have a good
look at the map and pick a resort for its central location.
Of the resorts, Wengen and Mürren
are on-mountain entries, the others are either at the foot of
the ski hills, or not too far away. The mountain train system
connects the whole scene anyway, so you can confidently stay
in almost any of the locations and reach your chosen ski area
with a minimum of hassle. As a matter of fact, if you are traveling
with non-skiers or those about to take up the sport, why not
set a day aside to enjoy some of the sightseeing possibilities
This area takes some beating when it comes to beauty.
While we are on the subject, you really ought to check The Jungfrau
region out in summer as well. Although there is no summer skiing
available, one can take memorable trips to the various glaciers,
lakes and waterfalls. There is so much in fact, that we are reluctant
to get started on it here. Summer in The Jungfrau is a story
of its own.
