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 :-)

You're right, it will. Really looking forward to it.

Hi Everyone,
Long time since I posted but it’s good to be back. Going to Wengen March 2019. Does any one know when the new V Bahn is scheduled to open? 2019 or 2020?

@MacBrian, v bahn mannlichen opening December 2019 GGM will shut April 2019 so there will be no Grindelwald to Mannlichen service this summer, they will remove the old cable towers and replace during the summer. New V Bahn will be slightly closer to Mannlichen restaurant . Theres a new permanent button lift rather than the portable drag lift at the top of mannlichen now, so going from Lager to Mannlichen restaurant may be easier

Snow might stay at higher level but won't lower down, temp in coming week will briefly go up Monday, Drop Tuesday and then rise again, I think this is just a brief white blip, probable storms overnight Monday-Tuesday long range forecast suggests cooler temps from Tuesday 6th and occasional light snow (nothing significant) with rising temps from Sat 10th

This year's DHO Journal has a short article about Telemark racing from Britain's number 1 Telemark racer Jasmin Taylor. After this season's last World Cup race in Mürren I invited her across to Wengen the following day and she had a day's skiing with some DHO members. I've scannned the article to a pdf file for anyone interested: http://snowmediazone.com/the_zone/data/500/Jaz.pdf

Might have asked this previously but are there any other deecent ski areas nearby to the Jungfrau worth visiting for a few days? I`m coming for 2 weeks at the end of February, start of March and fancy trying out somewhere new. Is it worth the hassle of the travel just for a few days somewhere else? I`d quite like to see Zermatt

Zermatt is about 3 hours away by train.
If you have a car you can be in Adelboden in about 90 minutes.

Options are greater than you might imagine. Adelboden as mentioned, about 1hr 15m drive from Lauters. Lenk is greater distance but an easier and quicker drive, 1hr to 1hr 10 to the Metstand carpark. This lift accesses the Lenk/Adelbd. sector.
Zweisimmen, you have to drive through this town to get to Lenk. The lift out of Zwei' gives access into the Saanersloch area which is a sgnificant part of the Gstaad area!
Without doubt all these areas are well worth a visit, as they are covered on the Top 4 lift pass we ski them regularly.

Should have stated that Zweisimmen and Lenk are very easily reached by train. The rly station at Zwei' is 250/300m from the gondola station. Adelboden less accessible as the train would get you to Fruitigen then it would be post bus up the valley.

Just because there was a fairly substantial dump of snow last year does not mean we will get a huge early dump this year, do not panic yet Happy

I have a buddy in Val Thorens - highest ski station in Europe. They have the same amount of snow as us at the moment - zero. Too early to worry.

I prefer the lower cams like the one at the Allmendhubel above Murren because if its good at that altitude its going to be wonderful high up!

Almiboden and Maulerhubel also open as well as the Birg lifts, but not Winteregg for some reason. Too low maybe.

Pre-season report.
Wengen is quiet with very few people around. Bars are beginning to open - Rocks 3 evenings a week, Tanne opens tonight and the Pickel is back with a nice tapas menu. The only hotel currently open is the Bernerhof.

Dozens of Christmas trees out in the street.



Weather is bright and dry at the moment - perfect for a walk in the valley this afternoon. There was a big rockfall at Lauterbrunnen last month - the debris has mostly been cleared up but the sheer quantity of rock is quite something.



The weather's changing this evening, snow and high winds are forecast. The Jungfraubahn will try to open Lauberhorn and Arven chairs tomorrow if the weather isn’t too bad. Currently +7C in the village and falling fast.

Fabulous - we’re there next weekend for a quick trip now we’re not too far away. The midget will be on skis for the first time and I can’t remember the layout at all. Anywhere for him to just scoot about on skis or sledge? (He’s 2)

@Nadenoodlee, if theres enough snow the nursery slope is dead center of the village, if snow a bit thin then at Kleine Scheidegg the mini slope might be working (Just down from station Grindelwald side) and sledging certainly possible, if forecast temp drops occur then I suspect they will put some man made snow down on the nursery slopes.

Scheidegg managed to open 2 lifts and 2 pistes today, well done anyone brave enough to go skiing. Over at Birg there was also some skiing this morning before high winds closed everything down. We had a few cms of snow last night, and it’s a lot colder so there should be lots more to come over the next few days. Temp in the village currently +1C.
