Ski area Grindelwald/First & Kleine Scheidegg/Männlichen

Ski area Grindelwald/First & Kleine Scheidegg/Männlichen

"The Grindelwald-Wengen" lift pass covers the Grindelwald/First and Kleine Scheidegg/Männlichen ski areas with a total of 151 km of piste (incl. ski routes) and 35 lifts. "First", with its broad selection of easier pistes and an especially designated 20 mph zone, is well suited for beginners. The area is also an insider tip for snowboarders. The "White Elements" snowpark makes the hearts of freestyle fans beat faster. The "First-Egg-Bort-Grindelwald" piste, at a length of 6 km and height difference of 1,118 m is demanding even for experienced skiers, and counts as one of the most difficult pistes in the region.

The Kleine Scheidegg/Männlichen area is one of Switzerland's most beloved, and is above all famous for the 4.2 km long "Lauberhorn" world cup piste. Beginners also get their full money's worth on the broad pistes.

For those who aim even higher, we recommend the "Jungfrau" ski pass, with which 206 km of piste at altitudes of up to 2,970 m are at your disposal. On the Schilthorn mountain, you'll find slopes of the most varying degrees of difficulty, a number of deep snow areas, the "Murren-Schilthorn" fun park and much more.

Night skiing Grindelwald

Night skiing is as popular in Switzerland as it is in other Alpine countries. Switzerland has quite a few ski areas that illuminate their pistes for skiing at night time. The ski area Grindelwald/First is one of those night ski areas. From the middle of December, the night ski piste is opened for the so called "bodmiNIGHT" in the Bodmi Arena in Grindelwald. Every Wednesday and Friday evening, night skiing is possible from 19:00 - 22:00. Apart from night skiing, you can of course also enjoy the atmosphere with a glass of mulled wine a little away from the piste. With the Jungfrau lift pass, the ticket for night skiing is for free.

Après ski Grindelwald

Après ski is a top priority here. When the day's skiing nears its end, it's time to meet at the large teepee on the "kleinen Scheidegg". After a chat, a cool drink or a mulled wine, you can all hit the slopes one last time to make the final run into the valley. Apres ski atmosphere can be found in the "Genepi Bar" or in the "Spycher Bar". In the valley there is further the "Espresso Bar" or the "Gepsi Bar" and of course the "Mescalero" or the "Plaza Disco" where you can dance the night away.

For non-skiers there are 100 km of winter hiking trails. Further there are 5 different toboggan runs in Grindelwald - one with 8 km length, or the 15 km long run "Big Pintenfritz". In the sports centre itself there are various activities on offer: from indoor pool, via high-rope parcours and sauna complex to ice rink with Curling facilities.

Snowpark: Grindelwald

The Snowpark "White Elements" in Grindelwald is nothing to sneeze at. Divided into two parks, the park offers good fun in the jumps and rails for beginners, intermediate as well as for pros. The 650 metre long advanced park at the "Bärgelegg" lift awaits you with its 25 metre high kickers and a 130 m long half pipe and is nothing for people with weak nerves.

At the "Oberjoch" is the beginners park located, which with its small kickers and boxes is perfectly suited for freestyle beginners. At the Schilt lift, the four-track Audi Skicross Park is located. Daily prepared, the "White Elements Snowpark" leaves no wishes unfulfilled. Moreover, in a collaboration with the "Summit Foundation it has an engagement for climate friendly skiing and snowboarding. International contests like the "End of Season Jam" provide further incentives to pay this park a visit.

In Grindelwald, there is a special park for free riders. In a large field at the Mammut ATC avalanche training centre, you can try out the technology used in searching for avalanche victims.
