A great walk up from Bussalp. You cant beat a hot bowl of bean soup with sausage in the summit restaurant!

birdheadFaulhorn Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2006


Started at Schynige Platte and traversed over the Faulhorn summit and then down to the First Gondola. Really a first class hike with beautiful views of the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau. Great rolling green pastures and wildflowers near the beginning. I definitley recommend the traverse as it is more interesting than the hike up from First alone.

vancouver islanderToboggan ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 10, 2001

The sking around Grindelwald was crap when I was last there so, following local advice, I rented a toboggan and a pair of snowmobile boots in town, took the gondola up to First and dragged my toboggan up the Faulhorn from there. Slid down all the way from just below the restaurant to Aellfluh - basically following #2 from this link http://www.grindelwald.net/Wanderkarte.html

The snow was a bit thin in spots, but it was a 10-12km more or less continuous run with a stop at Bussalp for coffee and apfelkuchli.

Worth remembering this option for something a bit different or when it's a poor snow year.

Nice short hike with my wife from the Firstbahn Gondola passing Bachalpsee with beautiful panoramas. The view down to the Lake of Brienz is stunning as well. We hiked down to Bussalp catching the last postal coach to Grindelwald. We encountered a few lingering snowfields near the top.
