I love sunny days and I love skiing. It is not surprise I highly enjoy day trip to the ski slopes of Jungfrau Region last week. The sun was out, the snow was despite warm weather good and I had a great company. The day was absolutely perfect.
This was not my first visit of Jungfrau region. I have been there before, most recent in January in Mürren. This time, I’ve returned to Grindelwald and my favourite slopes of the region – to Kleine Scheidegg – Männlichen. I like this area because it offers broad variety of slopes of all difficulties which are well connected. You can easily ski from Kleine Scheidegg to Männlichen and back (or reverse) without even taking your skis off.
We started our ascent to the mountain from the village of Grindelwald. From there there are two possibilities to go up to the mountain: by railway to Kleine Scheidegg or by cable car to Männlichen. We took the train because one of my companions never rode mountain train before. After a 35 minutes of scenic ride we’ve arrived to the top.
Kleine Scheidegg – Männlichen lies at the foots of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains. The views from here are to me even more stunning than the views from neighbouring Mürren or Grindelwald-First.
A nice addition to the classic ski-resort offer are photo points where you can take your photos and later download it from the internet, speed check where you can measure your speed and ski movie where you can film your run – all included in the price of a ski pass.

*I’ve borrowed this pricing section idea from blog Andreja’s WORLD. I found her summaries of the daily expenses very useful and informative. Andreja, I hope you don’t mind using your idea. If you do, please let me know.
