Does anybody have helpful information or first-hand experience regarding the Jungfrau ski areas near Interlaken, Switzerland? I will be spending a week in Interlaken, from which one can access those areas and I think some others. I'd rather stay in one of the villages up higher but the lodging location was chosen by a group.
I would like to ski the entire area. I believe, but am not quite sure because the information is a bit vague, that a "Jungrau" lift ticket provides access to everything from Grindelwald-First to Schilthorn. It's also not clear whether such a pass includes the railway connections from Interlaken or not.
Is there a good plan of attack for this region? The trail maps suggest that the terrain is easiest toward looker's left and steepest toward looker's right, but perhaps the map is deceptive. I don't have a good sense of the effective scale of the area or the connections, so I don't know whether it's possible to work one's way from one area to the other during a single day in order to follow (or avoid) the sun.
I also don't see an area below tree line that would be a good choice in white-out conditions. (Near Chamonix, for example, Les Houches at the bottom of the valley fits that bill.)
In short, any first-hand knowledge would be welcome. Thanks!
