... the more technical runs are still closed) so it was narrow, crowded and made up of hard pack. The first 100m was not the best way to start skiing! However the conditions improved and we had a good first run.
The snow conditions on the pistes are mixed to good, the off piste conditions are more varied; with powder, hard pack, bushes, rocks and heavy chop all met at various times!
We followed this with a second run down the same piste before heading ...
... red runs down to the Mannlichen chair lift to get our ski legs back and then we joined up with Jon's friend Bruce and skied over to a different chair lift for a couple of runs. The last run of the morning had the crash of the day. JJ headed off to the left into some well used off piste snow and was cutting back towards the run when the little dip he saw ahead of him was, in-fact, a gully! As he hit the snow covered edge of the gully his left ski detached and ...

After two days of having our @$$3$ handed to us by the Swiss mountains, we spent our last day of our postcard adventure by taking in the sights from the Glacier Express between Brig and Chur and then wrapped up the evening in Zurich which was the perfect setting in which to say farewell to ...
... lift station first, then slide down the slide leading to the trailhead, then, I was ready.
The hike really wasn't much of a hike, in my opinion. It was more like a long walk on a road from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg. Although it wasn't clear up there, it was still really neat-looking. The clouds ...
... straight up a mountain with an elevation gain of over 3,000! We then got a late start heading to Grindelwald via the train under the Jungfrau and again only views of pretty trees and clouds. When we arrived in Grindelwald ready to take a hike, we were surprised and excited to be smack in the middle of a huge crowd waiting for the bike riders finishing stage 3 of Tour de Suisse! ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Caprice Wengen
This hotel exceeded all expectations!
We stayed at the Caprice July24 for 4 nights We were a little apprehensive staying at a "smaller" hotel but because of the reviews on this site , we took our chances. It Was the best vacation experience of our life!!!! Absolutely immacculate. The staff was Top-notch. Very personable..it helped make us feel not so "foreign"!!
The views out of the dining room ....Oh MY GOSH
I have recommended to ALL my friends to stay here
The most beautiful place in the world.
we visited at the end of may, 2004.
we were fortunate to have a top floor room with a jacuzzi tub, marble bath, wood beamed ceilings and the most incredible view of the alps above, the quaint wengen village at our feet and the totally spectacular 'valley of waterfalls' in the near distance.
the location was literally steps from the train station.
the staff was efficiently helpful. one employee, i believe his name was andy from canada, was very helpful in giving advice on a hiking/walking trail to and beyond "mary's cafe" that i found so fulfilling. this is 'old europe' at its best.
we visited six places in europe. if i can only return to one - it will be wengen and the wonderful establishment of the caprice hotel.
We had a great June stay at the Caprice - two nights in a double with view on the second floor - it was perfect! The room was well-designed, and the view was unbelievable - the photos can't capture how extrordinary. In the morning, all we could hear were cowbells far off in the distance. Dinner was ultra-fancy, haute cuisine, perfect for a special celebration (we had a second dinner at the Eiger, traditional Swiss, also enjoyable).
A true gem for the discriminating traveler!
Hotel Caprice with its spectacular views, gourmet dining and excellent service from the warm & friendly management & staff made our visit truly memorable! Hats off to Monica & Christian Aubert! Gail & Alan Wayne
Don't think of staying anywhere else
Everything perfect - the location by the railstation, the view of the mountains, the bedroom very comfortable and functional with modern bath, and the best for last: absolutely magnificant food - a world class restaurant!
A Great Hotel
Situated only 100 meters from the train station and a few minutes walk from the telecabine, offering 2 routes to the ski slopes / mountain walks, together with the ability, in winter, to ski right down to the back door, this hotel is beautifully located for couples and families.
Panoramic views of the mountains and quick access to the small picturesque, car-free in winter, town of Wengen, are an additional benefit. The Caprice was recently completely refurbished to a very high standard. With comfortable bedrooms, excellent cuisine, a well stocked bar and a relaxed friendly atmosphere I am sure that you will enjoy your holiday here.

The best views in the World !
This Hotel has the best mountain views in Switzerland, if not the whole World ! Since a previous stay in 2002, we were very pleased this year ( 2003 ) to see that the Hotel has been completely and very tastefully renovated. There is a new comfortable lounge with a log fire, and a new bar with views to the mountains. The new restaurant is extremely well appointed, with French Gourmet cuisine. Our bedroom was very comfortable, with new carpet, curtains and bedspread. The lighting is also much improved, and there are now bathrobes ! The views from the balcony have to be seen to be believed !
Unbeatable location and views
Top class cuisine, fine wines and excellant comfort. Access to both the town and slopes is easy. A great location to enjoy the stunning mountains in both summer and winter.
Caprice, a small hotel that has it all
Rooms neatly furnished, view fantastic and staff attentive with outstanding restaurant and chef
