"Piz Gloria" is the name of the scenic film mountain at 1300m above the traffic-free Mürren resort. And the scenery and panoramic views in front of the main alpine ridge are pretty impressive too.
The piste from the Schilthorn to Lauterbrunnen is almost 15 km long, making it one of the longest in Switzerland. At the end of January each year, a hellish racing spectacle is enacted here. The descent is open to experienced skiers all winter.
The descent from Mt. Männlichen to Wengen passing by Kleine Scheidegg offers some unparalleled views of the mountain triumvirate: Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The second part of the hike follows the downhill run of the Lauberhorn, one of the world's steepest downhill ski runs.
Follow the Lauberhorn descent on foot to get an idea of what racers confront as they master the curves with speeds of up to and over 100 kilometers an hour.
