Apropos tradition: in the Grindelwald ski resort, this tradition is still preserved today by the typical buildings of the Swiss mountain world. You will look in vain for huge hotel castles here in the shadow of the Eiger North Face. The ski areas of the Jungfrau region can be reached by cable cars and ski buses, some of which are free of charge.

Past the imposing Waldspitz you glide over crisp slopes and wide flat sections down into the valley.
