Here are a couple of popular guided off-piste tours...

The Lötschenlücke - 1 day tour

This ski tour is one of the most popular in the Alps and starts off by catching the cog train from Kleine Scheidegg to the Jungfraujoch. From here, you ski for 7km down the Aletsch glacier - Europe's longest at 23km, towards Konkordiaplatz. There is then a two-and-a-half-hour climb using skins to the Aletschfirn before a long and breathtaking descent in to Blatten at 1540m in the beautiful Loetschental.

Jungfrau Area Tour - 3 to 6 days

Starting at the Jungfraujoch, the beauty of this tour is that it can be as long or as short as you want it to be. It typically starts by climbing Trugberg at 3880m from where there is a lovely descent to the Kinkordia hut. This can be used as a base for a number of days giving you time to try different trails. Further afield, via the Aletsch glacier, you will spend a night in the Mittelaletsch hut and then climb the Aletschhorn at 4193m for more off-piste magic. The final ascent is on the Lotschentaler Breithorn at 3785m that gives a massive 2km descent in to Mund before taking the bus back to Grindelwald
