Fun for the whole family...skiers and non-skiers alike. Take the gondola up to Muerren for the full experience (gondola ride included with lift ticket; separate fee if not skiing). Awesome views of the Eiger and the Jungfrau. Trails offer a challenge for all skill levels, but tend towards intermediate or better. Sledding on scenic, dedicated sled trails (rentals on-site), and skating rink also available. Restaurants serve great regional food. Lodging available in Muerren...ski right to your door. ...not to be missed!... Full Review

In addition to being a great family destination, Murren is a sort of hidden gem for powder skiers. There are two huge bowls and very few people seem to ski them. One requires a short hike from the top of the Schiltgrat lift. The other one is accessible from the Schilthorn. In addition to these bowls, the off-piste skiing was really good from the Birg mid-station.... Full Review

Located amidst some of the world's most spectacular scenery, Mürren is a charming little village that has managed to escape over-development despite being famous in the history of winter sports since the very start of downhill skiing. The absence of petrol/gas burning vehicles enhances still further the natural beauty of the place, bringing true tranquility and mountain air as pure as it can be. The first Alpine Ski World Championships were staged here in 1931 by the Ski Club of Great Britain and three years before that the first Inferno race, believed to be the longest downhill race in the world attracting around 1,800 skiers every January. So a great place to chill out and gawp awe struck at the scenery destination, or you can go full frontal in to it and bury yourself in the powder. The Inferno race was instigated by the famous Kandahar Club, established in January 1924 and still going strong in the resort. The Kandahar named their club after a British lord who donated a silver chalice as a prize to competitors in club events. Mürren is a car-free village, like neighbouring Wengen, any drivers must park their cars in one of the large valley car parks below and take the cable cars or funicular railway up to the resort. Mürren is located at one end of the legendary Jungfrau region, on the same lift pass as Wengen and Grindelwald although not linked to them by ski piste (you can however get across by a wonderful, century-old mountain railway). Mürren has the highest ski area in the Jungfrau and around 53km (38 miles) of trails locally, with a total of 205km (128 miles) of trails on the full pass. There are three main ski areas, the best known being the Schilthorn (see below) - tough at the top but superb for intermediates from the cable-car/tram's mid-station at Birg. The Schiltgrat has a mixture of runs whilst finally the Allmendhubel, reached by funicular train from the village has a draglift and easy runs for beginners. It's also possible to take a chair from here to Winteregg where there are lovely runs down through the pinewoods. Mürren's most famous runs for advanced skiers are down from the revolving restaurant on the Schilthorn (not marked on the map and built with money from the film company that shot the James Bond movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service there), the main one 6km (4 miles) back down to Mürren. Other popular descents (all only safely tackled with a guide) include Hidden Valley running from Maulerhubel down to Grutsch. The Blumental is famous for its powder. ... Full Review
