Winter sports season starts at Grindelwald and Wengen

On the weekend of 1/2 December 2018, the winter sports season begins in the skiing areas of Grindelwald and Wengen. Thanks to technical snow-making and good conditions for piste grooming in recent days, the first facilities and slopes can be opened.

The cold nights of this week were ideal for snow-making and enabled the grooming of some slopes in the Grindelwald and Wengen areas. This means that Grindelwald and Wengen can start the winter sports season on time for the first weekend of Advent.

Skiing in front of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau
The fresh snow of the last few days has set a wintry mood for the start of the season at 2000 m above sea level. Next Saturday and Sunday, 1/2 December 2018, the two chairlifts at Arven and Lauberhorn will start weekend operations.

Winter walking and adventures
It's not only skiers and snowboarders who are about to start the winter sports season. In the Grindelwald and Wengen areas, the winter walking trail from Kleine Scheidegg to Wengernalp will already be open this coming weekend. On Grindelwald-First, the First Railway is in continuous operation for the excursion traffic of the First Cliff Walk, First Flyer and First Glider.

Still available at 666 francs for a few days
After the successful premiere, the Top4 skipass for the four largest Bernese ski areas will be available at the pre-sale price again this year. If you like to act on the spur of the moment, the special offer is available for 666 Swiss francs until 16 December 2018. The joint subscription of the Jungfrau Ski Region, Adelboden-Lenk, Meiringen-Hasliberg and Gstaad will be available for SFR 950 from 17 December. Holders of the new Sportpass also receive a 33% price reduction on overnight stays from Sunday to Thursday in selected hotels at their destinations.
