Grindelwald ski holidays take you to a traditional village in Switzerland that lies beneath the rugged north face of the Eiger. The resort lies at an altitude of a little over one thousand metres with the highest lift reaching almost three thousand metres. It is a good choice for those with non-skiers in their party as, apart from activities in the village, visitors can take the train almost to the summit and enjoy the incredibly beautiful views that are normally only available to skiers. Over two hundred kilometres of pistes satisfy all ability levels from the absolute beginner to the seasoned expert. There are good childcare facilities with ski kindergarten from the age of three and non-ski kindergarten from the age of two, making Grindelwald popular with families.
Low cost Grindelwald ski holidays.
Low cost Grindelwald ski holidays are in great demand as the resort caters for all age groups. Young groups, couples and families find all they need for a satisfying break both on and off the slopes. Ski schools have a good reputation with English speaking instructors. Novices can find their ski legs at the top of the village on the Bodmi nursery slopes or the gentle blues at First and Oberjoch. Once they have mastered the basics they can move on up the mountain to find greater challenges. Intermediates are blessed with a wide variety of reds both above and below the treeline. The more testing reds are found on the descent from the Kleine Scheidegg mountain. Advanced skiers looking for more stretching runs can choose from the World Cup Downhill run at Lauberhorn, the Black Rock run below the Eiger or the extremely steep Kanonenrohr in Murren. Boarders have a number of kickers, boxes and slides in the snow parks. Cross country skiers have thirty kilometres of trails.

Nightlife in the resort can be as relaxed or as lively as you wish as there are venues to suit all moods.
