The First summit station is the meeting point. The après-ski party will be held at the Eiger+ event centre in Grindelwald, where the prizes will also be awarded at 5 PM. The top prize is a Skoda Fabia. Successful treasure hunters can also win prizes such as winter season subscriptions for the Jungfrau Ski Region, helicopter flights, Velogemel rides, Coop shopping vouchers, an iPad, entry vouchers for the Europapark and much more.
Live bands and egg jarping The winter finale starts on the Eiger+ Eventplatz in Grindelwald on Good Friday, 14 April from 7 PM with a concert by "The Suspenders".
