Located on the valley floor between Murren and
Wengen/Grindelwald this is the ideal resort for those wanting real
choice with their Jungfrau Region Pass. With pistes above 2500
metres, skiing and snowboarding is assured throughout the season to
give access to 378km of downhill skiing and 131 individual
Access to the slopes is via very civilised (and punctual) Swiss
trains and you can often ski right back to resort in January and
February - as they do for the Inferno, the world's most spectacular
ski race which celebrates its 75th anniversary in January 2018.
Surrounded by a vista of epic mountains, you'll be treated to
views of the Eiger as you cruise Lauterbrunnen's north face; visit
the Schilthorn Piz Gloria rotating restaurant at 2970m above
Murren, and relive the epic ski chase from the George Lazenby
Bond movie, On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Non skiers can also
enjoy the amazing toboggan runs including the 15km Big Pintenfritz
- the longest in Europe!
ON THE MOUNTAIN
Lauterbrunnen is a haven for the beginner or intermediate skier
and boarder, offering sweeping reds and scenic blues. Expert and
advanced skiers generally strike gold in the powder-rich, off piste
areas, and for the most part, snow is good here all season long
(with a little help from the snow cannons).
It's not just the skiing that adds to the Ski Miquel Experience.
At Lauterbrunnen you'll hit the mountain in a variety of different
ways, climbing into the clouds via gondola and mountain train;
making the most of the groomed pistes on the high speed chairlifts.
Meanwhile, the piste map will be in safe hands all holiday - your
Ski Miquel guide will lead you over the freshest snow and best runs
on the mountain, leaving you to enjoy the great sights and fluffy
The Chalet-Hotel Rosa and Hotel Silberhorn provide both comfy
lounges and fantastic menus with which to pamper yourself in the
evening, though anyone looking to explore the town will find
Lauterbrunnen to be quiet and generally relaxed. The boozy, late
night crowd don't visit here and a modest selection of bars and
restaurants will be enough to satisfy you when the chalet team have
their night off (Wednesdays). Overall your Ski Miquel hotel will
provide the best night in town in which to unwind after another
thrilling day in the snow.
