Chalet Alpweg is part of the Racers Retreat development located just outside the famous village of Wengen.
Two double bedrooms, both having their own en-suite facilities, with an additional gallery loft/bedroom.
An entrance hallway leads to stairs for the sleeping quarters, a separate cloakroom, into an open-plan kitchen/dining/living area and onward to a large balcony affording stunning views across the Lauterbrunnen valley and left toward Murren and the Jungfrau glacier. There is an additional balcony from the first bedroom, offering the same views.
The property is equipped with everything you might require for a memorable stay.
The closest chair lift is approx 200m away at the finish line of the World Cup downhill and slalom courses. This allows you to reach the three available skiing areas.
Wengen centre is a 15 minute walk along a quiet lane with stunning views as you go. A taxi service is available as are supermarket deliveries.
Winter: Local maps (incl ski areas): These are available to some extent on the website
Pre-season can have snow from mid November onward and a couple of pistes may (only may) be open, just to work those legs in gently.
Spring is significantly warmer, days are longer and there can be a great deal of snow.
The World Cup races are definitely worth seeing (here or anywhere) - simply the best skiers in the world.
For beginner skiers there is no need to miss out on the best views because there are nursery slopes up the mountain as well as in Wengen centre. These slopes are reached by train or cable car with the relevant ski pass, allowing all levels to congregate and discuss progress.
Summer: Quiet, peaceful, as energetic as you choose to make it, so many activities, often with very warm sunshine (please take care against sunstroke), marvelling at the scale of the surroundings. As in winter, no photographs will ever do it justice, so the guest's reviews can give you an idea of what to expect.
General: Please contact myself with even the smallest question. You will be offered every assistance throughout your stay. There is a very good chance that you will find your own favourite and unique aspect to this area, and at the end of the week we will unfortunately have to say goodbye, but please do return.
This is simply a fantastic area - please see the guest's reviews.
