Immediately after the Int. Lauberhorn Race, the first sections of the famous racing route have already been re-opened. Starting on Wednesday, 18 January 2017, it's possible to ski down the World Cup's longest downhill run once again. In the Grindelwald-Wengen region, around half a metre of fresh snow has fallen over the weekend.
The consistent snowfall of recent days has ensured optimal conditions for winter sports in the Grindelwald-Wengen region, and all of the facilities are open. In addition, a wide range of hiking and sledging facilities are now available to Grindelwald and Wengen visitors. For night-time sledgers, the illuminated Eiger Run route has been primed from Wednesday to Saturday. At Grindelwald-First, almost all facilities and slopes are also in operation thanks to the fresh snow.
Hundschopf and Ziel-S Descend like the greats: Starting on Wednesday, 18 January 2017, the original route for the Lauberhorn downhill run will be open every day to the public. Winter sports tourists can follow in the footsteps of the professionals by testing out key sections such as the Hundschopf or Ziel-S. A souvenir picture is ensured for all those who dare to tackle the route from the starting point equipped with an installed photo-point.
The halfpipe is open The offer for freestylers has now been extended in Grindelwald. Starting Tuesday morning, 17 January, Park Oberjoch on First, with its rails and kickers, opened its gates. Work on the halfpipe is in full swing to ensure it opens next week for all visitors.
