I have read through you post and they appear to be super helpful.
I am helping my son plan a 4 day holiday trip to Ski in Switzerland January 10th to 14th. He has never been to skiing in Europe and wants to experience the Swiss Alps. He is traveling with another student from Paris. I have reservations for 3 nights in Wengen Thurs -Sunday and 1 night Zurich where they fly out of Monday am.
The goal is to ski -tow days and experience a Swiss village. The thought was he would take the train from Paris to Basel and then on to Wengen. I see it is tricky to get to Wengen - 3 trains from Paris and costly which leaves more room for missing connections. It looks like they will arrive after 5 pm which the hotel doesn't pick up after 5pm. Ultimately they both need to fly out of Zurich at 9 am Monday.
My first question is since he is traveling from Paris Thursday and flying out of Zurich Monday do you have another recommendation than the Jungfrau area ? They just need to be in Zurich late Sunday eve. Do you recommend Wengen or Grindelwald for students - Age 21 ? I know Interlaken is close should they stay Thursday night there since they get in early evening and head up to Wengen early am - check in and ski the day ?
Any advise would be appreciated -thank you,
