Kleine Scheidegg - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
It is really breathtaking to spend a couple of minutes admiring the surrounding mountains. And that is not only because of the thin air or the effort taken to ski to this point. On a clear day the contrast between the mountains covered in snow and the blue sky is glorious, as you can see in this picture.

Panorama showing the area around Kleine Scheidegg overlooking Kleine Scheidegg Station. Kleine Scheidegg is one of the principle ski ares in the Jungfrau ski region. It is served by trains which arrive from both Grinderwald on one side of the mountain and Luaterbrunnen (via Wengen) on the other. It is possible to ski all the way down from here to both Grinderwald and Wengen. The train continues up to the Jungfraujoch, the highest station in Europe. This panoramic photograph was taken near the bottom of red run 42, which is served by the Lauberhorn chair lift. The ski runs and lifts serving the Kleine Scheidegg area are listed below. It is possible to ski from Kleine Scheidegg over to the Mannlichen ski area and back again using the interlinking lifts. The snow on the pistes tends to be better at higher altitudes.
Kleine Scheidegg is on a saddle of the surrounding mountains. In this photograph you can see the peaks that dominate the area. The three main peaks are the Eiger (3870m), Mönch (4107m) and Jungfrau (4158m). It is possible to walk to the top of the Lauberhorn (2478m) and take in a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. The area is popular with walkers and mountain climbers in the summer. There are a couple of hotels available for those wanting immediate access to the surrounding slopes.
These panoramas are also displayed on this Jungfrau Ski and Piste Map where you will find more information about this ski resort.
