Grindelwald Ski Touring Week

Day 0:  Arrival day in Grindelwald, Switzerland and overnight at hotel.

Day 1:  Travel up the First Cable Car and then to the Oberjoch (2,486m) and from here, we ascend to the Faulhorn (2,681m) where we are treated to views of the Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau and Lake Brienz. We then ski down to 1600m near Bussalp or to the valley floor at 930m depending on how far our legs are willing to take us.  This provides us with a good warm up day. Overnight at Grindelwald hotel. 

Day 2: This morning we head to Isenfluh, where we catch a tiny 6 person cable car up to Sulwald (1,500m). From here, we ascend to Kleine Löbhorner at 2,519m and ski towards the scenic Soustal.  There will be an option to combine this with ascending Schwalmere for an extra 400m ascent. We finish the day off by descending back to Isenfluh (1,080m) for another hotel night.

Day 3: We head off to explore the Rosenlaui Valley from where we will ascend from the Schwarzwaldalp Hotel, which is situated under the Wellhorn (3,191m) for an 1100m ascent and powder descent. Overnight at hotel.

Day 4: Our objective today is the head up to the Oberjoch and then ascend the Reeti (2,577m), before moving onto the Uf Spitzen (2,381m) for some steeper powder skiing. We finish the day by skiing back to Grindelwald and spend another night at the hotel.

Day 5: We travel through the famous Lauterbrunnen Valley and take the lifts to the Schilthorn (2,980m).  From here, we ski some exciting ridgelines towards a 400m ascent to the summit of Hundshorn (2,930m), which culminates in a 2,000m vertical descend to Kiental (950m).  We finish the day with a celebratory drink on the train that will take us back to Grindelwald. Enjoy a final hotel night.

Day 6: Depart for home.
