Switzerland's Jungfrau region (www.jungfrau.ch), which incorporates the ski areas of Grindelwald, Murren and Wengen as well as transport down to Lauterbrunnen and Interlaken below, has announced a lift ticket price freeze for 20120-13.
However skiers buying a lift pass valid for at least six consecutive days will be entitled to a free day pass for skiing at Zermatt, which has Europe's most expensive lift pass, from next winter on.
The Jungfrau region encompasses more than 200km of piste between 796 and 2970m above sea level, served by more than 45 lifts. There are three main sectors located above Murren, then across the valley between Wengen and Grindelwald and a third area, 'First' above Grindelwald.
The area is also famous for its spectacular mountain scenery and long skiing history with more than 110 years of ski heritage, much of it driven by early British ski pioneers.
A six day adult pass for 2012-13 will be 314 Francs with children aged 6 to 15 paying half price and discounted rates for young adults (16-19) of 251 Swiss Francs and seniors 62 and older (283 Francs). Children five and under are free.
