Located on the valley floor between Murren and Wengen/Grindelwald, this is the ideal resort for those wanting real choice with their Jungfrau Region ski pass. With pistes above 2,500 metres, skiing and snowboarding is assured throughout the season to give access to over 200km of downhill skiing and 131 individual pistes.
Access to the slopes is via very civilised (and punctual) Swiss trains and you can often ski right back to the village in January and February. The Jungfrau area caters for all abilities, from beginner to expert.
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 2,970m above Murren, and relive the epic ski chase from the 1969 James 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 snowboarder, offering sweeping reds and scenic blues. Expert and advanced skiers generally strike gold in the powder-rich off-piste areas, and snow is good here all season long and well-service by snow cannons.
It's not just the skiing that adds to the Ski Miquel experience - From Lauterbrunnen you can access the mountain in a variety of different ways, climbing into the clouds via gondola and mountain train, or making the most of the groomed pistes via the high-speed chairlifts. Meanwhile, the piste map will be in safe hands all holiday, as your Ski Miquel guide will lead you to the freshest snow and best runs on the mountain, leaving you to enjoy the great sights and fluffy turns.
The Chalet Rosa and Hotel Silberhorn provide comfortable lounges and tasty menus to enjoy in the evening, although anyone looking to explore the village 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 chalet/hotel will provide the best night in town in which to unwind after another thrilling day on the snow.
