My boyfriend and I are planning to go sledging in Grindelwald on March 9. We have been doing some research and I have a few questions regarding the sledging. We were planning on taking the cable car from Grindelwald to First and then hiking up to Faulhorn. From Faulhorn we would sledge down to Bussalp and probably stop into the restaurant and then continue sledging down the "City Run" to the base of Grindelwald.
However, I have a couple questions and we are very open to changing up our plans regarding your suggestions.
1) Has any one made the hike to the top (Faulhorn)? Have you made the hike from Bussalp or from First? Any suggestions on which one is a more preferable hike? (We are both ~30 and in good shape)
2) There is a bus that goes to Bussalp and a cable car/gondola that goes to First. We plan on taking one or the other depending on where we decide to hike from (as of now, we plan on taking the cable car to First, but are open to your suggestions re: question 1). Is the cable car or bus covered by the Swiss Travel Pass? If not, are they covered by the Half pass? (We are still deciding which one to get but based on our travel plans we are leaning toward the Swiss Travel Pass)
3) Anything else to note on our plan?
Thanks for your help!
