with a bit of planning ahead you can really enjoy this area. Its in the mountains - proper mountains not hills. There is a train to 3500m you can catch trains all over the place on the ski area trains are like lifts here. 4 different mountains to ski on - mostly linked but murren is separate - requiring a 10 min bus ride (highly scenic)to get to the base - but is included in the lift ticket. However you can ski back to Laterbrunnen direct. You can ski from Kliene Schideeg to Grindlewald and then a short 4min bus or train (again free with lift pass) to the gondola - scenic thats all part of the fun - its not for the unfit! (all the walking between trains and lifts etc) I think that planning a fitness are needed keeps the numbers in check and this is not as crowded as other areas. The toboggan runs are a lot of fun - best was manlichen - lots of good gradient! The skiing is great lots of terrain to explore. I think this is the best ski area in the world on scenery and long runs. Views from Jungfrau Joch top train station are amazing likewise the 007 revolving restaurant on top of Schlithorn. The Eiger face looms over the whole area. I think wengen is the best place to stay if you want to ski the whole area. But any of the towns are picturesque (don't stay in interlarken too far away)
