Grindelwald, Switzerland, January 2020

Skiing under the impressive Eiger North Face

Stunning scenery, optional cheese foundue & thrilling night sledging!

The Jungfrau region is also called "The Roof Of Europe", with the 3 peaks of the Monch, the Jungfrau and the stunning Eiger, all above 4000 mt, to guarantee excellent snow conditions throughout the entire ski season!

The Ski Area

The Jungfrau ski area offers runs for every ski level, including the famours Lauerhorn World-Cup run, and plenty of possibilities for skiing off-piste. 

Thanks to the strategic location of our hotel in Grindelwad, we have 2 ski areas within easy reach from the hotel: the Grindelwald-First ski area can be accessed with a 10 minutes walk (or a short bus ride) from our hotel.... the biggest ski area, Grindelwald-Wengen, can be accessed with a comfortable, scenic 20-min train ride. You will get off in Kleine Scheidegg, at 2000mt, just under the stunning Eiger Northface and right in the middle of the Jungfrau ski area!

 

The Derby Hotel ***s

We are staying at the Derby Hotel in the heart of the Grindelwald village, and directly in front of the train tracks (as you can see in the picture!). The hotel offers a luxurious breakfast buffet, a bar and a sauna. There are plenty of shops, bars & restaurants nearby.

Night-sledging!

This is the highlight of the trip for the most adventurous ones! Do you think sledging is something for kids..? Then you never tried it in Switzerland, they're real professionals over there!

The program is typically the following: we take a front-light and jump on the last train up to Kleine Sheidegg, enojoy a cheese foundue up at the top of the mountain... and then sledge down all the way to Grindelwald following the so-called Eiger Run! Sledging is fast and a bit tricky during the night when it's dark, but it's a lot of fun! If enough people are interested, we can organse this year again the legenday sledging this trip has become famous for. This is a very typical Swiss exprience, how could we miss that..!? ;-) below a couple of pictures from last year:
