The Valley is embedded in the famous alpine passes of Grimsel, Susten and Grosse Scheidegg. We shall be skiing in the area of the Susten pass which has excellent choices of quality glaciated ski touring peaks to climb with stunning views of the Oberland and surrounding peaks in the Urner Alps. A hidden gem of a venue. The jagged granite peaks give a unique ambience to this area.

The course meets in the old market town of Meiringen which is now a mountain ski resort which lies just north east of Interlaken. Meiringen is famous for the exploits of Sherlock Holmes and his ‘last’ fight with archenemy Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach falls. Meiringen hosts tourist sites such as the Sherlock Holmes museum and the ruined castle of Restiturm which lies just to the east of the centre of Meiringen, and once commanded the various trade routes that passed through the town. It is also the gateway to the Haslital and the Susten pass.
