The ski area Grindelwand - Wengen has around 110 kilometres of largely red-marked runs, offering plenty of exhilarating terrain for advanced skiers and snowboarders in particular. Beginners can also enjoy the feeling of skiing at the foot of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, while there are also a couple of more challenging runs for experts. The Wengernalpbahn, Gondelbahn Grindelwald-Männlichen and Luftseilbahn Wengen-Männlichen lifts serve the ski area from Grindelwald and Wengen.

Beginners should definitely check out the long blue-marked trails leading from the mountain station of the Fallboden chair lift via Kleine Scheidegg to Brandegg, while there are also a number of other easy runs to explore along the Läger and Männlichen chairlifts. From the Mittelegg mountain station, you can even take a blue-marked run all the way down to Wengen in the valley.

Advanced skiers and snowboarders will find just about all runs in the ski area manageable and enjoyable. Take the Eigernordwand chairlift up to 2,320 meters and the Eiger Glacier. This also marks the starting point of the red Punchball run. The Arven chairlift links up with additional intermediate runs leading all the way down to Grindelwald Grund in the valley.

Experts should first make for the highest point in the ski area – the Eiger Glacier. The black-marked Oh-God and Black-Rock trails run parallel to the Fallboden chairlift. The race course between the Wixi valley station and the Innerwenger mountain station is a particularly intense, white-knuckle ride. This also provides access to the slalom run. Learning is fun for young skiers on the nursery slopes of Figeller in Wengen, and this training area is located directly in town, right behind the tourist information centre.

PLEASE NOTE: Grindelwald-Wengen is connected to the Grindelwald-First ski area by ski bus. However, you are able to ride both ski areas with the same lift pass

On Mountain Dining

Going hungry or thirsty shouldn’t be a worry in Kleine Scheidegg – Männlichen, as some ten ski lodges and bars are waiting for skiers and snowboarders. For meat-lovers, a detour to the 1995 Schigrill & Bar Gysibielen is an absolute must. At lunchtime they serve their legendary Nordwand Steak. Wash it down with a downhill coffee before hitting the slopes with a full belly and a spring in your step.

Think deck-chairs, BBQ sausage, home-made soups and a jaw-dropping panorama. The Spycher-Bar is without doubt one of the most beautiful snow bars in the entire region.

Must-Ski Runs

The main highlight for expert skiers in Grindelwald is the world-famous Lauberhorn World Cup course, which plunges 1,028 vertical metres down into Wengen over its 4.2-kilometre length.

The longest run is the 13 km Lauberhorn-Grindelwald trail with a vertical descent of 1,380 meters – serious stamina is required for this one!

Several other blue and red-marked valley runs also wind down into the valley resorts of Grindelwald Grund and Wengen. As a result, even beginners can take their time retreating to the valley after the lifts close for the day. If that all sounds like too much hard work for your taste, Kleine Scheidegg – Männlichen also offers a so-called “slow slope” which actively encourages the most laid-back brand of skiing imaginable.

Several sled runs also run down to Grindelwald and Wengen: The Eiger Run is a racy affair from Kleine Scheidegg via Alpiglen and Brandegg, while the Fox Run begins at the same starting point but runs down via Wengernalp and Allmend to Wengen. Ritas Speedway starts at the mountain station of the Holenstein – Männlichen gondola and plunges directly down to Grindelwald Grund.

Winter hiking fanatics should look no further than the Standseilbahn lift up to Kleine Scheidegg from Grindelwald. After soaking up the amazing views on top, you can take a winter hiking path to the 2,230-metre summit of Männlichen. Alternatively, the route can be navigated in the other direction.

The Schürlibar is a watering hole located directly by the valley run from Kleine Scheidegg down to Grindelwald Grund. It’s hard to imagine a better place to drink one for the road at the end of the day before making your final descent.
