Between Jungfrau and Männlichen

Quel malheur! The fact that the only bad weather day in the last few weeks of January coincided with our ski day dampened our enthusiasm for winter sports in Grindelwald a bit. Although the misty panorama between the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau provided a picturesque backdrop for a Caspar David Friedrich painting, it didn’t promise much fun on the slopes. But you shouldn’t blame the day before the evening: Up close, the conditions were far less uncomfortable than feared. A few banks of fog here and there reminded us to be cautious, but they certainly didn’t dampen our sporting spirit.

Instead, we encountered empty lifts and lonely, perfectly prepared slopes. Clear run on the Lauberhorn descent! By the time the lifts closed, we had covered several kilometres of fun on the slopes. The hiking group also explored the winter landscapes between Grindelwald, Kleiner Scheidegg and Wengen on foot and by mountain railway.
The hearty Älplermaggronen in the “Restaurant Eigernordwand” restaurant, the final get-together for a cosy fondue in the “Barrys” and a positive team spirit at all times did the rest. At the end of the day, we looked back on the 2024 ski day with satisfaction.
