Ski Grindelwald, Wengen, Mürren, and the Entire Jungfrau Region!

With over 45 lifts and 4550 ft of vertical, you'll have plenty of opportunities to shred some serious powder. Ski directly from lifts in the center of town to nearby areas like Wengen and Mürren, and make sure to stop for lunch at one of the region's famous slope-side restaurants. Ski areas include First, Grindelwald, Wengen, Männlichen, Mürren, and Schilthorn. While here you can race down the world-famous Lauberhorn!

And if that wasn't enough, the Jungfrau Region has introduced two new lifts for the 2020-21 ski season, making it faster and easier than ever to access the slopes. The "V-Bahn cableway" will transport you to the Eiger Glacier and the Männlichen in record time, and also provide easy access to the Jungfraujoch, also known as the Top of Europe.

After a long day on the mountain, spend your time wandering through town, shopping, or people watching in one of Grindelwald's cozy pubs and cafes. And for those who still have energy left, dancing is just a stone's throw away.

Take a day trip to the top of the Schilthorn and visit Piz Gloria, where James Bond "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" was filmed, and ski down from the very top! Or hop on the train to Interlaken for even more adventure. Travel by train and soak in the mesmerizing beauty of the Swiss countryside. Interlaken is nestled between the crystal-clear waters of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, and the town is surrounded by majestic mountains, offering a picturesque setting for your excursion. Once you arrive, you can explore the charming streets and shops, sample local cuisine, or opt for a more thrilling activity like paragliding or skydiving. Interlaken is also a great spot to experience traditional Swiss culture, including yodeling and folk music. Whatever you choose, this day trip is sure to leave you with unforgettable memories.

This incredible ski trip is open to all ages and is scheduled for President's Week. Skip the crowds at US resorts and experience the best of Europe with the DSC! Don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ski Grindelwald, Wengen, Mürren, and the entire Jungfrau Region!
