Grindelwald-First – Snowpark with halfpipe open until 5 April 2021

The Snowpark in the Grindelwald-First winter sports area, with jumps, rails and half-pipe, will remain open until 5 April 2021. Thanks to daily preparations, conditions are very good and demand is correspondingly high. The Grindel chairlift and various slopes will remain in operation as will the First Railway. The Grindel valley slope also remains open as long as snow conditions allow. The winter sports facilities around Kleine Scheidegg will be in operation at least until 18 April 2021.


Thanks to the good snow and slope conditions in the First winter sports area, freestylers as well as skiers can continue to use the Snowpark and the slopes at the Grindel chairlift.

A variety of slopes are accessible from the Grindel chairlift, even though the Oberjoch chairlift and the Howald and Bärgelegg ski lifts will be out of service from Monday 15 March. The Bärgelegg ski lift will be in operation on weekends and in the event of high demand. If you want to switch from First to Kleine Scheidegg/Männlichen during the day, you can continue to do so without any problems thanks to the Grindel valley slope remaining open. 

With its jumps in various sizes (S, M, L), halfpipe as well as rails and boxes, the Snowpark offers something for every ski skill. The various elements are prepared daily with a lot of effort and passion. The First Aerial Cableway continues to bring sledging and winter walkers to the area.

Although it is very challenging for the Jungfrau Railways in terms of business, they have decided to keep the slopes and railways around the Snowpark and halfpipe open to benefit the tourist region.

Grindelwald-Wengen and Männlichen winter sports areas

While the Grindelwald-First winter sports area will be open until 5 April 2021, the season in the area around Kleine Scheidegg will continue until at least 18 April 2021. Whether the season will be extended there until 25 April 2021 will be decided at short notice, depending on demand, snow and weather conditions. The Männlichen ski area will definitely be open until 11 April 2021.
