Grindelwald and Wengen have continuous winter sports operation
From Saturday, 15 December 2018, Grindelwald and Wengen will be offering continuous winter sports operation. In addition to an extensive range of slopes, guests will find attractive trails for winter walking and sledge rides available from next weekend.
This week’s snowfall and cold temperatures guarantee ideal conditions for the preparation of the slopes, and this makes continuous winter sports operation possible at Grindelwald and Wengen from Saturday, 15 December 2018. As of next weekend, guests will not only find a wide selection of slopes, but also the valley run from Kleine Scheidegg towards Grindelwald up to Brandegg. Also open is the Männlichen – Kleine Scheidegg connecting slope and the Kleine Scheidegg ski school.
