Visitor Reviews of Grindelwald

Ron Sweet from Canada writes:

Visited Grindlewald Jan. 26th to Feb.2nd. This was my second trip to the area in 8 years. Had a fantastic holiday and stayed at the Jungfrau Inn. Good accomodations and great food. The sking is fantastic throughout the entire Jungfrau Region. Runs are mostly rated Intermediate with great cruising runs. Modern lifts and cable cars throughout. For some reason I enjoyed myself more this time than 8 years previous. I thoroughly recommend the Jungfrau region for a ski holiday.
