Piste diversity for all

Grindelwald is not a ski area which is especially known for its heavy pistes. But you can still find interesting black pistes. Some of these pistes for advanced skiers cross both ski areas, Grindelwald and Wengen. The Weltcuppiste am Lauberhorn is an absolute must for every professional skier who is traveling in the Jungfrau region. Here you have the unique opportunity to ski on the footsteps of top athletes on one of the most famous pistes in the world. Even the difficult piste "Black Dream" is a big challenge for advanced skiers. The name is program and you do not necessarily have a nightmare to imagine what skiers expect on this piste.

Short and steep is the piste n ° 27, which bears the name "Oh God". It consists of humps, steep pistes and gullies on the edge of crevasses. Grindelwald also has overwhelming off-piste opportunities. In the area at First, at the foot of the Eiger Glacier, offers a piste full of challenges for ski professionals. For your own safety, it is advisable to fall into this off-piste adventure only under the guidance of experienced guides. On Grindelwald-First and in the area around the Männlichen, it is also possible to ski at a moderate pace. The Tempo 30 piste was created especially for this purpose and is reserved for slow driving. Beginners and intermediates can improve and develop their skills in specially-designed learning parks.

A paradise for beginners, snowboarders and sledders

In the center of Grindelwald lies the bodmiARENA, a ski-learning and practice area. On a surface of 50 000m2 beginners from the age of 3 learn to master their first pistes and turns. Numerous facilities have been built there for the comfort and safety of skiers: conveyor belt, Pinocchio ski lift, warm-up room with play area. On the Grindelwald-First there is also an excellent practice area for beginners. Located on the Kleine Scheidegg plateau, this beginner area offers numerous installations to learn how to ski and get on the pistes. After dark, the bodmiARENA turns into an illuminated night skiing area, much to the delight of the tireless. Skiing in the moonlight, torchlight downhill runs and mulled wine for all provide unique experiences and relaxation.

For snowboarders and freestylers Grindelwald offers a modern snowpark called "White Elements". Over a length of 650 m, White Elements offers a range of installations: slides, tables, bumps, superpipe, boardercross and a gigantic half-pipe with kickers up to 25 m in length. With a radius of 5 m, Grindelwald's Half-Pipe is one of the largest in Switzerland. In Grindelwald there is also one of the longest toboggan runs in the world: the "Big Pintenfritz", which extends over a length of 15 km between the Faulhorn at 2680 m altitude and Grindelwald at 1034 m. The sledging on the route Männlichen-Grindelwald is well worth it. Over a height difference of 1196 m, with impressive curves and steep sections, there is the prospect of crazy sleigh races.
