Its two different parks and the new half-pipe make the White Elements Snowpark in Grindelwald number one in freestyle for the Bernese Oberland. Easy jibbing in the Beginner Park Oberjoch, airtime in the pipe or hard lines in the Advanced Park Bärgelegg – flow, creativity and good times are on the agenda at the White Elements Snowpark. Grindelwald First has therefore been a popular meeting place for years for the snowboard and freeski community in Switzerland.
When you are full of anticipation while on the Oberjoch chairlift and swinging over the rocky projections, you can see the Beginners Snowpark to the left of the mountain station. In this snow park designed for beginners, you will find a smaller kicker, various rails and boxes ranging from small to medium size. Whether you’re trying freestyle for the first time or need some early morning warm-up laps, the lines are suitable for all levels and particularly versatile due to the creativity of the obstacles. The snow-sure location at 2,500 metres above sea level guarantees an early start to the season.
RAILS & JIBS
2-3 Small size kickers
2-3 Medium size kickers
Even while you are lacing your boots in the gondola shortly before Schreckfeld, you will see the freshly shaped kickers of the Advanced Snowpark at the Bärgelegg ski lift. At 650 metres in length, you can find everything your freestyle heart desires there. The various jibs and hits can be combined with the kicker line. The new 130-metre long half-pipe integrated into the park ensures even more flow. The park’s own ski tow brings you on a direct path back to the start after your run.

1. LOOK FIRST, THEN JUMP
Users should look at all obstacles first and ensure that the landing is free. In addition, they should leave the landing zone as quickly as possible after landing.
2. PLAN YOUR RUN
The users should consider which elements they want to use. The speed, the approach and the take-off have a direct impact on the trick and the landing.
3. GO SLOWLY
Users, especially inexperienced ones, should start with the small elements and develop the skills necessary for larger elements (medium to large).
4. RESPECT EARNS RESPECT
Users should respect other park users and nature. That means they should not endanger other park users and follow the parking rules.
5. DON’T LEAVE RUBBISH BEHIND
All users of the facilities are asked to dispose of their own rubbish. This also applies to cigarette butts and snus sachets!
