(1 Review)
Great skiing and stunning scenery and Swiss style at affordable prices - 26/10/2012

One of the best kept secrets of the Alps, the town of Grindelwald sits on a sunny plateau at the bottom of the Eiger's imposing North Face. It offers a choice of 4 seperate ski areas all on the same lift pass, each with their own seperate character There is a bit of something for everyone, even if you don't ski. The skiing is varied and the scenery stunning and as most of the skiing is at around 2000 meters and on North facing slopes, the snow lasts right to the end of the season and you can normally ski right back to the resort. Although the price of ski hire is higher than in some resorts, the quality is always first class and there is a good choice of ski schools in town, including the British run Altitude Snowsports School. Pretty much everyone in town speaks English fluently and there are plenty of nice but not too rowdy bars and clubs to entertain you at night. Contrary to the common perception, not everything in Switzerland costs a fortune, so nights out are affordable as well as fun.

Apres Ski: 4/5
