Jungfrau Snow Sports

The Jungfrau region has three highly-regarded ski areas that are very popular with locals: Grindelwald-First, Männlichen-Kleine Scheidegg and Mürren-Schilthorn. All of these ski/snowboard areas have views of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. A combined total of 213km worth of pistes and over 40 ski lifts means you can take your pick from all levels, and the season generally  lasts from mid-November until the end of April. Bear in mind that transferring between ski areas via the trains can be a somewhat slow process, and very crowded during school holidays.

Toboggan Runs too!

There’s about 100km (62mi) of toboggan runs as well, with some illuminated at night. The longest of these runs (actually, the longest in Europe) is Big Pintenfritz, which connects Faulhorn (2680m, 8793ft) with Grindelwald over 15km (9.3mi), with a drop in altitude of 1600m (almost a mile).

The White Elements snowboard pro park is at Bärgelegg, which lies above First. A beginners snow park is at Oberjoch.
