Grindelwald, Jungfrau Region, Snowshoeing

I’ve had this trip in the diary for a while and I’ve been looking forward to it. I don’t get over the Grindelwald too often or the Jungfrau region so the chance to work with a UK college group for a few days was something I pleased to get.

As the date got nearer I’d started to wonder if the snow would be any good but some fresh snow this week left us with a lot of powder and although the avalanche risk was elevated it looked fairly easy to find some good terrain.

The students were on Outdoor Education and Public Services courses and had been in the area for a week already so they’d got lift passes. Since they’d access to to the lifts I decided to take them up to Grindelwald First so we could experience the high mountain environment before descending through the forest and, I hoped, finding some good powder.

I’m pleased to say we’d enough gear to kit the group out! Although there wasn’t much left back at base!
