Jungfrau Ski Region wins Public and Jury Prize in China
The Jungfrau Ski Region is gaining prominence in China. It has won the Golden Snowflake Public Award for “World's top ski resort most popular with Chinese skiers”. The region also received the Sino-Swiss Business Award for “Most China-Ready Swiss Winter Destination”.
Interest in winter sports is experiencing rapid growth in China, with the 2022 Winter Olympics being held in Beijing. Due to the popularity of the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe in the summer and the destination of Interlaken and the Jungfrau region in general, the Jungfrau Ski Region is also enjoying a rapidly growing reputation. This is reinforced by the successful cooperation in the area of communications between Swiss Tourism, Interlaken Tourism, Jungfrau Region Tourism and the Jungfrau Railways for the Chinese market.
