Lauterbrunnen Ski Resort
Lauterbrunnen is a municipality in the Swiss Alps. It encompasses the village of Lauterbrunnen, set in a valley featuring rocky cliffs and the roaring, 300m-high Staubbach Falls. Nearby, the glacial waters of Trümmelbach Falls gush through mountain crevices past viewing platforms. A cable car runs from Stechelberg village to Schilthorn mountain, for views over the Bernese Alps.
The Swiss Ski Resort of Lauterbrunnen is part of the Jungfrau Region ski area with access to 378km of downhill skiing, with 131 individual pistes, served by 66 ski lifts. In addition to the skiing in Lauterbrunnen itself (26 pisted ski runs), the appropriate ski Lift Pass will allow you to ski or snowboard in the other Jungfrau Region ski resorts of Grindelwald, Mürren and Wengen.
With pistes above 2500 metres, skiing and snowboarding is assured throughout the season.
