Freeriding Mürren: Switzerland’s Prettiest Ski Town

14 freeriding routes for fresh powder and plenty of thrills in Mürren.





A picturesque, historic ski resort in the centre of Switzerland, the quiet, car-free cobbled streets and traditional Swiss wooden chalets give Mürren its chocolate-box character. As the town has managed to resist the large scale development that other popular Swiss resorts have undergone in recent decades, staying in Mürren feels like going back in time.

Perched on a cliff in the renowned Jungfrau skiing region, Mürren affords amazing views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks, and even the most experienced skiers will be challenged by the extensive advanced on and off-piste options, focussed around the 2970m Schilthorn mountain. Here’s a collection of 14 freeride routes to get you to the best powder in the area. For a great adrenaline rush try the James Bond run!
