Grindelwald Ski Resort
Sitting beneath the towering North Face of the Eiger, a trip to Grindelwald in the Swiss Alps will be a memorable one for skiers and non-skiers alike.
Grindelwald lies at the base of the Jungfrau ski region, with 155km of local slopes served by a fleet of increasingly modern lifts, affording access to terrain across two varied areas. Its main slopes are shared with Wengen and there is a separate area of sunny pistes on First.
The ski resort also provides some of the best off-snow diversions of any in the Alps. A trip up to Jungfraujoch is a must and in addition, the resort boasts Europe's longest sledging run and an extensive network of mountain walking trails.
Grindelwald has always been popular with members and there is no better way to find out more about the varied slopes and stunning scenery than through the expert local knowledge of your Ski Club Rep – in town this winter from January through to March. Grindelwald is also an easy train ride from Zürich and for this reason, two Freshtracks weekends are heading out to the ski resort this season.

What's New for 2019/20
There are two new lifts in Grindelwald this season. The two new lifts, collectively called the “V-cableway” as they will both depart from the same base station in Grindelwald Grund which will feature a covered passage that connects to the Rothenegg train station of the Berner Oberland Bahn. The base station will also feature a car park with 1000 spaces, as well as a bar, a kiosk and a range of shops selling ski gear. As a result of the upgrade it will take 47 minutes less to reach the ski areas and the Jungfraujoch.
The V-Cableway lifts will transport skiers and boarders to the Eiger Glacier and the Männlichen. The lift to the Eiger Glacier will be a 3S cable car, while a 10-person gondola will transfer skiers to Männlichen.
