Destination Guides - Wengen ski holidays



Wengen ski holiday takes you to the Jungfrau ski area which offers over two hundred kilometres of pistes. Being neighbours with Murren and Grindelwald, it caters for all levels of proficiency. At an altitude of almost thirteen hundred metres, the village lies on a sunny ledge that looks out onto the spectacular north face of the Eiger. The highest lift reaches three thousand metres and the area has a good snow record. Wengen is accessed by rail rather than road so there is almost no traffic in the resort which is a factor not lost on parents. The resort is in fact very family friendly with plenty of activities for children and good childcare. Provision. Tuition is offered from the age of three.

Wengen has slopes for all, from the absolute beginner to the seasoned pro. There are nursery slopes at village level where newcomers can learn the basics and gain a little confidence. They can then attempt the gentle runs on the Klein Scheidegg either back down to Wengen or Grindelwald. Intermediates with the full Jungfrau lift pass have a huge choice of runs from challenging pistes on the Kleine Scheidegg as well as the powder slopes from Eigergletscher and Wengernalp. A popular run is the eight kilometres from Oberjoch to Grindelwald. Advanced skiers can stretch their expertise on the Lauberhorn race run or the black runs from Schilthorn. Boarders have a snow in both Murren and Grindelwald. Cross country skiers have thirty kilometres of trails. Because of the mountain train non-skiers can meet up for lunch with their skiing friends and enjoy the fabulous views.
