While mountain scenery is always impressive, a Wengen ski & snowboard holiday takes you to a particularly beautiful resort. The village lies on a sheltered area beneath below Jungfrau in the Swiss Alps and looks out towards the Eiger's north face. It is a truly spectcular landscape. Lying at an altitude of almost thirteen hundred metres and with the highest lift reaching almost three thousand metres, Wengen has a good snow record. Should there be a shortfall, there are snow making facilities on fifty-five percent of the pistes. The Jungfrau area has over two hundred kilometres of pistes with runs to suit all ability levels in skiing and boarding. It is a family friendly resort accessed by rail and is therefore virtually traffic free which is always a bonus for those with children. The ski schools offer tuition from the age of three.
Wengen has slopes to suit all levels of skiers and boarders. First timers will benefit from the excellent tuition they'll find in the ski schools. They have a choice of the nursery slopes in the village or the beginners park at Kleine Scheidegg. There, they can learn the basics before moving on to gentle blues at a higher altitude. Intermediates have a wide choice of reds and can enjoy the powder slopes from Wengernalp and Eigergletscher. They also have the eight kilometre run from Oberjoch to Grindelwald. Experienced skiers can test their skill on the Lauberhorn race run or the black runs from Schilthorn. Wengen has a snow park for boarders and there are others in the Jungfrau area. Cross country skiers have thirty kilometres of trails. Wengen ski holidays are a great choice for those with non-skiers in their party as it is easy to meet up at a mountain restaurant for lunch using the mountain transport, and there is also plenty to do in the village.
As you'd expect in a swiss resort, hotels, apartments and chalets all reach high standards of comfort and provide every modern amenity. You are assured of a warm and friendly welcome and service is excellent. Wengen's many restaurants serve a wide variety of cuisine catering for all tastes and budgets. You can choose anything from fast foods and the cheap and cheerful pizza and pasta, to traditional fare and international cuisine. Apres ski and nightlife can be as lively or as relaxed as you wish as there are venues to suit all moods from romantic to party. Activities include ice skating, tobogganing and snowshoeing. There is also a cinema.
