Beneath the mighty backdrop of the world famous Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks lies the equally famous ski resort town of Interlaken. Conveniently situated 40 minutes drive from the closest airport (Belp) and 20 minutes from the valley stations of Grindelwald, Wengen and Mürren, Interlaken earns its name as the gateway town to the Jungfrau Ski Region. It is an ideal base for both skiers and non-skiers, offering a large variety of accommodation options, activities, and extensive public transport connections to the mountain included in the Jungfrau lift ticket.
With what has been described as Europe's most dramatic mountain scenery, skiing in the Jungfrau region is a unique experience. However, it's not just the scenery that will impress. The Jungfrau region offers fantastic skiing conditions, well prepared and uncrowded pistes, excellent beginner areas and a large snow park. Snow conditions throughout the whole winter season can be guaranteed with the combination of Swiss Alps snowfall and extensive snow making facilities.
