World-famous ski area
High-altitude, diverse skiing
World Cup resort
Are you searching for high-altitude and diverse skiing suitable for all levels? Then a school ski trip to Jungfrau in Switzerland will be hard to beat. Set against the impressive backdrop of the Eiger and Jungfrau mountains are the world-famous resorts of Wengen, Grindelwald and Mürren. This resort is a favourite on the World Cup circuit – the Lauberhorn Race is held in Wengen every year and is the longest and fastest of its kind. And the towns are lovely – charming Wengen was one of the first Swiss resorts to welcome British skiers, and cosmopolitan Grindelwald offers some really exciting après-ski options, including the longest toboggan run in the Alps! Many of our hotels are in Interlaken, which is the perfect base for exploring the entire area.
With 217km of skiable terrain, there is skiing here to suit all levels and, although the majority is best suited to beginners and intermediates honing their skills, there’s actually plenty to entertain everyone – from complete novices to experts. Jungfrau is a great option for mixed-ability groups, which is often the case with school ski groups. You won’t need to worry about the snow conditions – the resort’s high altitude means that snow is practically guaranteed. So you can spend your time exploring this exciting area – it’s all really well connected by the efficient infrastructure, which includes a mountain train, gondolas and cable-cars.
Excellent hotel - would highly recommend. Good range of slopes for beginners to more advanced skiers.
