Thanks to the excellent weather conditions, visitors can experience the first downhill run from Kleine Scheidegg to Grindelwald Grund starting next weekend. Also guaranteed is the Männlichen – Kleine Scheidegg connecting slope. On 2/3 December, the Männlichen area offers weekend operation, and the continuous winter sports season starts on 16 December.
