Under the mighty Eiger and Jungfrau mountains, this is a top alpine region. Famous for the renowned skier's village of Wengen at its heart, 213km of prepared pistes, amazing scenery and plenty of sunshine make this an exceptional location. The network of 45 lifts access 64 interlinked runs.
The Kleine Scheidegg area ranges from blacks beneath the Eiger’s north face to winding tree-lined paths. With the Wengen / Lauberhorn World Cup held here each year, it is a favourite snowsport resort for many. From Mürren the lift system provides a full variety of runs, rising to the famous James Bond Schilthorn black run that starts amidst stunning views at 2,971m. With a 2,171m descent back to Lauterbrunnen, this is the route of the world famous, 15km Inferno Race.
