About the Mountains near Murren

The slopes are varied if a little limited in number. It is a great area for the expert skier with a number if interconnecting runs that thrill rather than frighten. The intermediate will feel comfortable with the snow sure area below the Engetal. Beginners will struggle to find enough easy runs to graduate from once they have exhausted the adequate nursery slopes.

Apr├Ęs Ski at Murren

The mountain restaurants can be patchy in both service and food. Most eating out takes place in hotels if not in the mountains. The apres ski consists of discos and bars with the occasional trendy cocktail bar.
