On and Off the Slopes of Jungfrau on School Ski Trips

Situated between the cantons of Valais and Bern in the Swiss portion of the Bernese Alps, Jungfrau is one of the main summits of the range. With a name that, in German, means Maiden, Jungfrau is, fittingly, a perfect place to go on maiden school ski trips for students to learn the ropes of the sport.

Just two hours from Zurich, Jungfrau is easy to reach and has a reputation as one of the best ski areas in Europe. Jungfrau is overlooked by the face of the Eiger and combines three ski areas to provide over 220 kilometres of pistes. School ski trips to the area will allow students to start at a level of difficulty that they are comfortable with, then progress when they are ready.

Skiing in Jungfrau

There are three main ski regions in the area of Jungfrau that school ski trips can encompass: Grindelwald, Kleine Scheidegg and Mürren. Starting in Grindelwald is a good move, as many of the pistes here are relatively easy and provide a great location to get to grips with learning to ski or improving, before heading upwards to the more difficult areas near Kleine Scheidegg and Mürren. The Kleine Scheidegg area is located at the base of Eiger and is often used as the connecting village between Grindelwald and Mürren. Both Kleine Scheidegg and Mürren have an abundance of wide, well-groomed slopes where students can quickly advance and move up into the more challenging aspects of the pistes.

Off the slope activities

If young people are tuckered out from all the skiing on their school ski trips to the Jungfrau region, take an afternoon off so they can enjoy some of the off-slope activities that the area offers. Spend a few hours ice-skating on both indoor and outdoor rinks, or if they want to get out into the mountains but not ski, then consider taking students snowshoeing on the well-groomed trails that surround the villages of Jungfrau.

For some of the most spectacular views in the world, students can visit the 'highest railway station in Europe', the Jungfraujoch. They can head up to the viewing platform near the Sphinx Observatory and experience the stunning views across the mountains, before heading down and riding the Grindelwald-Männlichen Cableway. Connecting the two villages, this is one of the world's longest cable car routes and is overlooked by both Eiger and Jungfrau peaks.

Off slope relaxation

From specialised 'Bollywood' restaurants to fine dining and take out pizza, there is no shortage of dining opportunities in the Jungfrau region. After a leisurely lunch, students may want time for a spot of shopping at the variety of local boutiques and high-end shops in the villages. Some may even want to experience some true luxury on their school ski trips and book into one of the exclusive spas for some pampering treatments.
