If you are holidaying in Wengen you have two ski pass options, the Grindelwald – Wengen area pass which covers the Mannlichen – Kleine Scheidegg area and the smaller Grindelwald First area above Grindelwald. The Grindelwald – Wengen area is the largest part of the ski area and more than enough for your visit.
The second option is the full Jungfrau Region pass which covers the Mannlichen – Kleine Scheidegg, Grindelwald First and Murren Schilthorn ski areas as well as the trains from Grindelwald and Wengen / Lauterbrunnen to Interlaken.
That depends! If you are staying in Wengen then the Grindelwald – Wengen pass is more than enough. However, the full area pass incorporates the steeper and more challenging slopes of Murren Schilthorn, located just across the stunning Lauterbrunnen valley.
All of our group lessons take place in the Grindelwald – Wengen ski areas, meeting at Kleine Scheidegg, so the Grindelwald – Wengen area pass would be sufficient.
During private lessons, it would be possible for our guests to take a full day lesson in the Murren Schilthorn area as well.
In a word, yes! It’s a stunning place; a beautiful car free village perched high above the Lauterbrunnen valley with incredible views of the surrounding mountains. The James Bond film ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ was also filmed here on the Schilthorn peak. The skiing is also very good; a little steeper and more challenging than the rest of the Jungfrau Region slopes. As a criticism, the infrastructure of the Murren area is not as advanced as the Grindelwald – Wengen areas. Is it still worth it? Definitely!
Yes! It is worth it for the experience of the quaint village and its glorious setting as well as the top of the Schilthorn with its incredible views, revolving restaurant (one of only three in Switzerland) and James Bond museum.
A couple of options. The first would be to take the train from Grindelwald to Lauterbrunnen and then take the cable car to Grutschalp above Lauterbrunnen. From here, take the newly upgraded train to Winteregg where you can access the ski area.
The other option is to take the bus from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg, from where you can take the cable cars all the way up to the Schilthorn. This option is also the best option when driving, as Stechelberg has plenty of parking options.
For the 20/21 Winter season for the Grindelwald – Wengen region for 6 days is:
Whereas the full Jungfrau Region pass for six days would be:
Only available for the full area, the standard season pass is priced at CHF1100.- However, if purchased before the 15th December 2020 this price is reduced to CHF777.- As an extra bonus this cheaper pass also includes unlimited lift access in the resorts of Meiringen – Hasliberg, Adelboden – Lenk and Gstaad – Saanenland.
If you have a ski pass for three or more days, you can take a trip to the Jungfraujoch, the highest train station in Europe and the start of one of mainland Europe’s biggest glaciers, for CHF61.- which is substantially cheaper than the normal list price.
For non-skiers, it is also possible to purchase a pass just for sledging and winter hiking.
