Murren Ski Holidays - Fantastic Ski Runs
Murren is one of the few last minute ski holiday resorts in the world that can genuinely claim to be the birthplace of downhill skiing. Murren is a cheap ski holiday picturesque resort with truly world class skiing situated in the heart of the famous Jungfrau Region. Murren has 53 km of piste locally and you also have access to a total of around 205 km of skiing in the Jungfrau region. The Top Ski Pass includes skiing at Wengen and at Grindelwald including free transport between them by either cable car, bus or train.
Last Minute Ski Holidays In Murren - Set Amidst Spectacular Scenery
The skiing in Murren is divided into three distinct areas, the most famous is the Schiltorn which is located at the top of the mountain and is suitable for experts from the top and ideal for intermediates if you get of the cable car at the mid-station in Birg. The second area of Schiltgrat is ideal for all ability levels from first timers to seasoned skiers. Some of the best skiing to be found in Murren is from the revolving restaurant on Schilthorn back down to Murren.
The final area of Allmendbuhel is perfect for beginners with easy runs and dedicated beginner lifts, this area can be accessed by funicular from the last minute ski holiday resort. You can venture on from Allmendbuhel to Winteregg by chairlift and explore some of the exciting runs that cut down through the pinewoods of the area.
Cheap Ski Holidays In Murren - Relaxed Apres Ski
The annual 'Inferno race' takes place every January and has been going for nearly 70 years now. It involves a 12 km descent down a 2,842 metre vertical through some very tricky black sections. The race times range from about 15 minutes to an hour if you are taking it at a more leisurely pace. There are also some other tough runs around the area and heli-skiing is popular in this cheap ski holiday resort.
Although not a typical snowboarders' destination, Mürren does have the advantage of having most of its runs accessible by cable cars, funiculars and chairs - few surface lifts. The resort has also built a half pipe at Kandahar chairlift, close to the Schilthornhütte.
In the evenings there are few bars to fit the 'boarders stereotype young/loud/video screens norm - but then isn't it also a 'boarders norm to avoid being stereotypical...
Mürren's après ski is generally cosy and relaxed with most of the hotels offering traditional stubli bars. A good way to start straight after skiing is with a 'cake stop' at the Bellevue. Later on there is music at the Tächi Bar and the Inferno whilst for night owls the Biemli Chäller should be lively through the night.
For a bit of a change rent a toboggan at a sports shop, take the funicular up to Allmenhubel then sled back down. Alternatively you can go down from Mürren to Gimmelwald and take the cable car back up or, if you want to work up an appetite, walk up to the Gimmelen restaurant, enjoy a meal, then toboggan back down to your hotel.
The resort's trump card here is its Alpine Sports Centre attracting both sports people looking for altitude training and recreational winter sports fans. Facilities here include an indoor pool with jacuzzi and a children's pool, sauna, steam bath, solarium, squash court and a large multi-purpose gym as well as an artificial ice rink.
There is only one squash court left at the Alpine Sports Centre the other was rebuilt into a InterSport Sports Shop.
All hotels and apartments from Mürren and Gimmelwald provide guest cards giving free entry to the swimming pool and the ice rink. The resort also has reading and games rooms and library. Otherwise attractions are limited to outdoor sports including winter hikes and a choice of toboggan runs (see Après Ski).
Most of the restaurants in Mürren are based in the hotels and offer traditional Swiss Alpine fayre - gorgeous as it is - to a high standard. The most noted restaurants are naturally in the higher category hotels, but the Stäger Stübli, popular with the locals, has a particularly good reputation for fondue. Of course Mürren offers the unique opportunity of dining in the revolving Schilthorn restaurant during the day - the last trip to Mürren is at 5pm.
