    Skiing the Eiger

    Apart from the cable cars in and around Grindelwald (there is a plenty of them...), you can also go up to the mountains by yourself.
    There are several possibilities for ascents, most of them in the Jungfrau region. There they all have a very alpine character, as the summits are more or less all above 3500 meters.
    The pic was taken on the Eiger mountain, a very rough ski trip comming from the station "Eigergletscher" of the Jungfraujoch train over the rude Eigergletscher.

    Walking trail from First to Bachalpsee

    by sierralyndon Written Jun 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A frozen lake!

    From the gondola station at First, it is an easy walk to Bachalpsee (return should be about 1hr 15 minutes if you don't stop). In late May the lake was still semi-frozen so I was a bit disappointed as I didn't get to see the beautiful reflections of the mountains.

    There was also a little snow on the ground making the walk a little soggy in some areas.

    Equipment: Good footwear and sensible clothes. Lots of sun-block

    Hiking Trails

    The trails in this region (and I expect all of Switzerland) has great markings. There are signs indicating where various points of interest and destinations are located (in hours). Also, if a sign is all yellow, it means that the path is suitable for everyone. If it has a red and white stripe on it, it means that it is recommended to have a little bit of experience and suitable shoes (with good grip) to go on it. Blue and white stripe means that you need climbing gear.

    Equipment: If on a more difficult hike, good shoes are necessary. At First, you could try out hiking shoes for a day for free!

    Walking trail from First to Grosse Scheidegg

    by sierralyndon Written Jun 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We wanted to take the Marmot trail to get from First to Grosse Scheidegg... unfortunately it was closed, but we did venture some way along the trail before deciding to turn back and use the "more direct" route.

    In any case, we managed to catch glimpses of some marmots and a deer.

    Will definitely go back later in the summer for more animal spotting.
