The full area Jungfrau Top Ski Region ski pass covers not only Wengen but 213kms of pistes, providing almost unlimited scope for Intermediates on a range of relaxing runs or more testing routes down the Kleine Scheidegg mountain.

Highlights include the 8km run from Oberjoch down to Grindelwald and the powder slopes from the Eigergletscher to Wengernalp.

Experts can try the famous Lauberhorn World Cup downhill piste, or the fearsome Black Rock run which starts at the base of the Eiger. If you can cope with any more then there is the famous black, almost vertical ‘Kanonenrohr’ in Murren.

There are two half-pipes in the region, a jumpers corner in Wengen, a terrain park at Schreckfeld and excellent runs for beginners.

There are 150 snow cannons contributing to the natural snowfall in Wengan and the Jungfrau ski area for more guaranteed skiing throughout the winter season.
