Jungfrau Ski region pt. 2

The April edition of Fall-Line magazine has an interesting article on Mürren. However I noticed one mistake - it said that the black piste from the top of the Schilthorn was 75°! Shocked Of course they should have said it's 75% (where 100% equates to 45°). Doing the maths the actual slope angle is arctan(0.75) = 36.9°, still quite steep but not as terrifying as the article implies. Laughing

I found it pretty terrifying Laughing

I was actually talking to a maths teacher when i was there. He told me it was 36.9 degrees. And pointed out that the steepest road in the UK is 33%, so the Schilthorn is quite steep.

The Hundschopf on the lauberhorn course is 41° but is only a short section, the final schuss is 36° it always looks steeper from the top looking down opposed to the bottom looking up snowHead

New snowmaking between Gummi and Tschuggen to be installed. This is great news as it will ensure the connection between Männlichen and Scheidegg opens earlier in the season.

It will let you go from Mannlichen to Kl Scheidegg but possibly not the other way, typically at the start of the season high winds often strop off any snow on the slopes above the Arven and in particular Honegg lifts, you can still use the road to go through the woods to the Tschuggen lift but it often requires a bit of walking

That sounds a pretty good deal for anyone who is out there for more than say 2 weeks in the season. Cool

Mürren news, work has started on new snow making facility on slopes of the Almiboden and Maulerhubel chairlifts. If the weather permit, a section will also be built along the Winteregg chairlift. The remainder Winteregg work will be done in Spring 2018.

Season passes by post: https://top4.ski

No link yet for regular passes, but http://www.swisspasses.com are selling them already at around 10% off so I shouldn't think it'll be long.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who hates that new website.

We have moved from Jersey and now live in France. I can see Puy de Sancy mountain peak (1886m) from our bedroom window with Le Mont Dore slopes only 1h30m away.

Being closer to the alps you would think it would be easy to get to Mürren from here, think again!

By train it would take 10hrs and by plane I need to fly back to Gatwick to get to Geneva. So, driving it is and only 6h40m Sad Sad

I can believe that. A friend who spends winters here lives near Cahors. He also finds it easier to fly home via the UK.

The cows are being moved to lower pastures - at the moment they're just above the village at Allmend.



Rain & windy today - snow down to 1300 metres forecast for early next week Shocked

It snowed again last night, and it even snowed a little at Scheidegg this lunchtime, but warmer weather is on the way by the looks of it. Mürren from Mettla.

Looks like most of it will melt over the next few days, but no really warm weather forecast (unlike last autumn) so fingers crossed. GBP vs CHF hit 1.31 today so wax 'em up guys!

Mürren News

New for 2018, Skyline Snow Experience at Birg -




I wish they would instead of catering for tourists in the summer months go ahead and get the Charlifts installed for the winter -

Blumental - Allmendhubel chairlift (access both sides instead of skiing back to Mürren from Schiltgrat)
Allmendhubel - base of the Kandahar chair (instead of skiing to the Schilthornbahn)
