When our friends come to visit us in August, my husband and I decided to took them to the picturesque village of Mürren and 2,970 m high summit Schithorn in Berner Oberland (Bernese Oberland). With its majestic mountains, charming little villages, and unspoiled nature is one of my favourite regions of Switzerland.
Despite it doesn’t seems winter has come to an – it snowed in Luzern yesterday, my skis and ski equipment are already safely stored in our storage room. Looking back, this ski season wasn’t as plentiful as the previous ones (2015/16, 2014/15), but I still manage to spent some great time at the slopes.
- Grindelwald (January & March 2017)
- Melchsee Frutt (February 2017)
- Klewenalp-Stockhütte (March 2017)
- Sankt Moritz – Corviglia (March 2017)
Total: 5 days of skiing
In January I’ve skied the snowy slopes of Kleine Scheidegg – Männlichen ski area located in the Swiss Alps above the village of Grindelwald in Jungfrau Region . You can read more about this trip here; here is the video of the snaps from that great day on snow. Hope you’ll enjoy it!
A week and half ago, my husband and I finally started ski season and went skiing to one of our favourite places ski, to Grindelwald in Berner Oberland. Some of my followers are probably aware I love this ski resort. Ski slopes there are great, the landscape is stunningly beautiful, the infrastructure is good and it is close enough to Luzern for a day ski trip.
Winter has come to an end and with it most of ski resorts shut their lifts and closed their slopes. Looking back, this ski season was great. Despite I’ve only skied in Switzerland, I’ve been to some amazing places where I enjoyed amazing alpine landscape and had great time at the slopes.
In total, I’ve spent 7 days skiing:
Jungfrau Region is with its majestic alpine scenery one of my favourite regions of Switzerland. It is an area I always like to return to. After a great sledging trip to Grindelwald few weeks ago, my husband and I returned to this region two weeks later to go skiing to our favourite slopes of the region Kleine Scheidegg-Männlichen.
The weather forecast for the past weekend wasn’t too promising – the rain in Luzern and snow in the most of the alpine resorts. While neither I nor my husband likes to ski in such conditions, we decided to skip skiing this weekend. Instead we went sledging. Our destination was lovely village of Grindelwald in Jungfrau Region in Bernese Oberland. We’ve been there many times before – for skiing and hiking, but never for sledging.
Jungfrau Region is home of numerous well-groomed sledging tracks and is a great place to go sledging. We’ve opted out for Grindelwald’s run from Kleine Scheidegg to Grindelwald-Grund, a spectacular sledging track at the foot of one of the the iconic Swiss mountains – Eiger. Continue reading
Spring is in its full bloom and ski season has come to an end. With Easter gone by, most of the ski resorts have shut down their lifts and closed their slopes. Looking back, I’ve spent some great time at skis this season. Continue reading
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. Continue reading
