Ten of the best ski resorts for scenery

SWITZERLAND

Jungfrau region
The views of the adjacent peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains are breathtaking — seen at their best from the ski runs of Wengen and Grindelwald, and the runs and village of Mürren, set across the Lauterbrunnen valley.

Mürren has a wonderfully scenic long run of some 1300m vertical from the Schilthorn summit, in good conditions all the way down to Lauterbrunnen — 16km and 2175m vertical. The snow on the top half of this run is usually the best in the region. The skiing in Mürren is mainly tough intermediate stuff. Wengen and Grindelwald share a much bigger area of easier slopes and Grindelwald has its own separate area of sunny intermediate slopes. Wengen and Mürren are charming, car-free and reached only by cog railway or cable car. Grindelwald is a traditional mountain town with a long history of mountaineering.
