Grindelwald is a paradise for not only skiers, but also excites the heart of snowboarders. The latter can have fun on the countless slopes but, above all, in the snowboard parks on Grindelwald-First and Mürren-Schilthorn.
In the parks, various installations such as kickers, rails, steep corners, waves and dips await both experts and beginners. With its radius of 5.5 m the superpipe on Schreckfeld is one of the biggest and best halfpipes in Switzerland. After the snowboarding the various après-ski bars invite you in, and those wishing to party until the early hours of the morning have the choice between bars with live music and nightclubs. It is therefore no surprise that numerous professional Swiss snowboarders have declared the Jungfrau Region as their Eldorado, where they can test and improve their skills in the best conditions throughout the winter season. At the same time the region offers both tradition and trends.
The Alpine topography of the Jungfrau Region offers little space for Nordic cross-country skiing. The views of the mountains, though, are all the more spectacular.
In the Lauterbrunnen valley the 12 km track from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg leads along the Weissen Lütschine River and frozen waterfalls as far as the Upper Lauterbrunnen valley (classical and skating). In Grindelwald the 17 kms of track in Grindelwald Grund offer something for all levels of ability.
