Today you'll fly to Zurich and transfer by coach and mountain railway to the pretty, car-free village of Wengen. Set amidst spectacular scenery, Wengen nestles on a sheltered terrace at the foot of the Jungfrau. The village offers impressive views of the surrounding mountains and easy access to the Grindelwald & Wengen ski area.
On arrival your Ski Tour Manager will help you collect your ski equipment, and we'll take in views of the Lauterbrunnen Valley when we enjoy a cheese fondue on the terrace. You will also be able to collect your included lift pass so you can join the ski school first thing in the morning.
This evening we'll get to know each other over a welcome drink before sitting down for dinner in the hotel restaurant.
After breakfast your Ski Tour Manager will accompany you to the ski school for your first session. If you are coming back to skiing after a few years, the instructors will assess your level of skiing and then help you get your confidence back.
We'll have a traditional light lunch together and take the weight off our feet, as we make plans for the afternoon. If you have your confidence back and want to continue skiing, your Ski Tour Manager will organise things for you.
At the end of our first full day of skiing, we'll be ready for a well-deserved drink either in an après ski bar or back at the hotel. Then, after time to freshen up, we'll get together for dinner and share our ski stories of the day.
Your sessions at ski school will continue for the next two days, as you begin to regain your confidence.
If you're feeling ready to explore and would prefer not to attend ski school, your Ski Tour Manager will take small groups up onto the slopes. Alternatively, you're welcome to head off independently if you wish.
Your Ski Tour Manager will always organise a meeting point for lunch, and a time to get together in the afternoon for an après-ski drink and the chance to discuss plans for the next day.
If you would like to continue with ski school, we will organise this for you. Alternatively, if you are ready to hit the slopes, you can do so independently or with our Ski Tour Manager - it's totally up to you. Your Ski Tour Manager can ski with up to 10 people and will help you plan your day. During your days on the slopes you could take the mountain railway to the Kleine Scheidegg, where the Wengen and Grindelwald ski areas meet.
If you feel like having a day off skiing, there's plenty of other activities to enjoy in Wengen. Why not try your hand at curling, sledging, ice skating or even snowshoe trekking. You could also take advantage of facilities at your hotel, there's a fabulous spa area and indoor swimming pool, perfect for stretching and soothing those muscles!
At the end of every day, we'll meet in the bar before dinner. One night, we'll enjoy the hotel's Swiss buffet evening, where a tempting array of local specialities are served, including raclette, rosti, and a selection of cheeses and roasted meats. Then, if you have room, there'll be a magnificent choice of desserts to round off this gastronomical experience!
We also have a very special adventure planned for another evening. We'll take a leisurely walk into a forest where, in a small mountain hut, we'll be served a delicious raclette dinner by candlelight. A unique experience which concludes with a walk back through the forest to the hotel.
It's your last chance to swap contact details with new-found friends, before we depart for Zurich airport after breakfast and our ski adventure comes to an end.
