Grindelwald great for families

Grindelwald great for families Ski holidays in Grindelwald could be a great choice for families looking to hit the slopes this ski season following the introduction of speed restrictions on one of its runs.

The new initiative, launched at the Swiss resort last season, means there is a safer, gentler area for your younger children to begin life on the slopes, safe in the knowledge that a top speed of 30kmh must be observed.

This slow speed zone idea could be the perfect way to introduce beginners during a family ski holiday in Grindelwald, where if you're new to the slopes you can take advantage of the blue piste at Oberjoch.

Talking about the speed restrictions, a father-of-three told the BBC what he thought of the idea.

"It's particularly good if you have young children and want them to be able to ski without being hit by out of control skiers going too fast," skier Richard Slater said.

However, Grindelwald is not just about rookies, offering the more advanced skier plenty of reason to choose ski holidays in Grindelwald for a ski season break.

The Lauberhorn World Cup downhill piste is sure to test you, while the near-vertical black 'Kanonenrohr' in Murren is for the real experts out there.
