Bernese Oberland Ski Resort Ratings

T

he Bernese Oberland describes the higher, Southern reaches of the canton of Bern from where a number of rivers from the valleys of the Hasli, Kander, Schwarzeluetschine, Simmen and Saane, amongst others, flow into the Aare - which when it joins the Rhine is actually a larger river by water volume. The Aare flows through Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, which are, like most Alpine lakes, the vestiges of deep hollows gauged out by glaciers.

The skiing and snowboarding in the region is amongst the best in the world. The Jungfrau resorts are truly spectacular, lying beneath the iconic North Face of the Eiger. In effect, winter sports started here, with the first Alpine ski race at Murren and the first ski package holiday to Adelboden. It remains one of the easiest areas to get to as well, either from the international airports in Basel, Zurich or Bern or by road and rail from Northern Europe.

The tourist office for the Jungfrau region is located here.
