Lauberhorn race track open to everyone from Thursday
On Saturday, the downhill pros were still speeding down the Lauberhorn race track, but now the famous downhill track will be open again to all winter sports guests from Thursday, 18 January 2024. Those brave enough can follow in the footsteps of the ski stars again this week and take on the longest downhill run in the world, at least as far as the S finish. This will also be open to everyone again from Saturday, 20 January 2024.
From the start house towards Hundschopf and at a rapid pace down to the S finish: the famous key sections such as Russisprung, Hundschopf, Minschkante, Hanneggschuss and Österreicherloch are now open again for all winter sports fans. This means that just after the race days in Wengen have finished, winter sports enthusiasts can follow in the footsteps of Odermatt, Sarrazin and others, and try to ride the descent in front of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau on the perfect line – just like the ski stars.
A souvenir picture is ensured for all winter sports guests who dare to tackle the slope from the starting point, which is equipped with an installed photo point. From time to time, training sessions and races still take place in the top section from the start to the Russisprung. This will be signalled on site. The section can be bypassed without any problems.
Grindelwald-First freestyle paradise Freestylers of all ages can show off their tricks and jumps at the snow park in the Grindelwald-First winter sports area. The halfpipe, jumps and rails in various sizes at Oberjoch are calling you to try them out. They are prepared daily with a lot of effort and passion. “Our park offers plenty of variety for every riding ability and the chance to improve your tricks. The halfpipe with views of the north face of the Eiger is unique”, explains park manager and Olympic halfpipe champion Gian Simmen.
