Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Jungfrau Ski region pt. 2

Nice day over at Mürren. Lots of racers with 210cm Super-G planks zooming about. Snow is generally good - Schiltgrat a bit slick towards the bottom, but no real problem. No queues, but best to avoid the pistes where the Inferno racers are practicing - they seem to ski in groups of 2 or 3, racing against each other! Run down to Lauterbrunnen is open, and probably the best it’s been for years.



Weather is pretty cold at the moment, but the skiing's great.

Potentially looking for a 4 day trip first week of April flying into Basel.

How is the snow usually in early April and any recommendations for where to stay?

We are both reasonable skiers, happily ski any piste, enjoy moguls and challenging blacks and would hire a guide if conditions warranted it.

We've been to lots of resorts, but never sked this area. Not into huge apres but would like a few bars/restaurants to eat out at night and walk around a bit.

Last season was pretty good in April - this was taken on the 6th.



That's at about 1600 metres on the way to Brandegg.

Where to stay is a good question. Most handy for the lifts are the hotels in town - Victoria Lauberhorn, Silberhorn, Sunstar, Bernerhof, Caprice, Schönegg. Lots of self catering apartments on AirBnB too. Wengen has half a dozen bars and plenty of restaurants.

In April i would head for the higher village, Murren.

Looking at #Murrenlover twitter feed last year the snow levels on April 13th was 90cm in the village and 420cm at the top.

Hell, that was one cold day! We put skins on at the Wetterhorn car park and eased on up the road. In 15years of touring I think that was the coldest condition I remember.
We didn't make it to Grosse Sch' hotel at the top, as we felt the light was going to deteriorate.
The plus side to cold temperatures is snow in fantastic shape. One week old...... we skied down in good powder!!!
(Snow is 1 week old)

As Roger mentioned yesterday, it’s a bit cold here at the moment. Minus 11 in the village this morning, and minus God-knows-what up at Männlichen. Nice sunny day though, and it was actually quite busy early on.



Conditions are still very good on-piste.

We had about a foot of fresh snow in the village last night, so the snow's great today. Absolutely freezing at Scheidegg with deserted pistes. There was a big avalanche below Allmend this afternoon, don’t know whether it caused any damage yet.

Breaking news: Fish & chips is back on the lunch menu at the Bellevue. Very nice too.

Had a great week, snow was wonderful, although on a couple of days the light made things a bit difficult; but managed to fit in at least six hours skiing each day! Looking forward to the new Grund-Mannlichen lift opening new year.

We had another big snowfall Saturday night into Sunday, but today the weather was perfect. Lots of accessible powder.



Pistes are fun with lots of chopped up soft snow.

Once again great pic Mike. We (at least two snowheads) skied a few "face - shot" lines over at First.
We didn't have to leap off Oberjoch cliffs either.
I am filled with much sadness reading of people losing their lives when its all about living, grinning and a beer to say great day!

Indeed. Ours is a dangerous sport, and the mountains are a dangerous place. You’re right about that beer though.

The weather’s still beautiful. Can recommend this little hut on the blue piste that leads from Aspen down to Grund. Just simple stuff like chäsbratel etc, but inexpensive and really cosy.

Following your piece of breaking news as I visited Mürren yesterday I had to try the fish and chips. Agree it was very tasty (fish was actually Perch, and served with tartare sauce, nom nom). Here's a photo.....

We had another good snowfall last night. Bright and quite mild this morning. The cross country track at Lauterbrunnen is open and was very popular today, and I don’t think I've ever seen so much snow in the valley.

Great snow and sunshine today after a snowy few days. It wasn’t even too busy. Anyone coming for the U.K. half-term holidays this weekend is going to have a great week.

Uptown Lights playing in Rocks bar tonight - highly recommended. Another cracking day today. Popular pistes (this is Arven) are busy, but the snow is sublime.
