Grindelwald & Gstaad
About Grindelwald & Gstaad
The Destination Gstaad is the perfect place for fun-filled skiing experiences on a range of superb slopes. Charming chalet villages adorn the entrances to the various ski areas: Family-friendly ski lifts, kilometres of downhill runs and the only glacier ski area in the Bernese Oberland, where winter sports can be enjoyed from the end of October to the beginning of May.
Abutting the famously rugged Eiger, Jungfrau and Monch peaks, a Grindelwald ski vacation is sure to please anyone in search of a good view. Grindelwald is the largest of the Interlaken-based resorts, known as Jungfrau Top Ski area, in the Bernese Oberland Mountains of Switzerland. Grindelwald is directly linked to Wengen ski area, and the Top Ski lift ticket provides access to the resort's combined 132 miles of ski terrain over 50 pistes. The Jungfrau Top Ski resort accesses pistes above 7,500 feet, ensuring that skiers and boarders experience exceptional snow coverage. And despite being one of Europe’s favorite ski destinations, the Jungfrau region rarely experiences crowds, thanks to its three sprawling base areas, and centrally located Interlaken. Plus, the resort’s 20 chairlifts transport 42,000 passengers uphill in an hour.
Non-skiers and those looking for a variety of activities and experiences, will be incredibly pleased, thanks to the world-famous cogwheel train, which shuttles skiers and sightseers alike to the “Top of Europe,” the saddle between Jungfrau and Monch peak. Those looking to participate in winter activities will be pleased to learn that Grindelwald is home to the longest toboggan run in the Alps, and the Grindelwald Valley features 12 miles of world-class country-country skiing trails.
With so much terrain to explore, a lively and storied base village in Interlaken, and spectacular Alpine peaks, you might as well start planning your Grindelwald ski vacation today.
