This is a large ski resort beside the Jungfrau and the Eiger, which has superb skiing for intermediate-advanced skiers.
Encompassing the resort villages of Grindelwald, Wengen and Murren, the Jungfrau Region is both enormous and wildly photogenic. At the heart of the resort, the Kleine Scheidegg offers long blue runs in the shadow of the Eiger North Face, with views of the glittering Jungfrau Glacier towering over the sunny plateau to accompany your lunch. There’s plenty to challenge advanced skiers, notably the Lauberhorn ski race run or the Inferno on the other side of the valley - the latter, in particular, lets you channel your inner James Bond. While there are beginner slopes across the resorts, the length of even the blue runs plus the wait for a train to take you back up are better suited to confident beginner-intermediates than complete novices. Wengen and Murren have preserved their Alpine charm but don't have much in the way of nightlife; Grindelwald has more of a buzz thanks to the young seasonal ski staff letting off après-ski steam.
