Local to Jaun

There is local skiing in the village or Jaun and at nearby Charmey, as well as the whole Gstaad skiing area to explore. The Gstaad ski region is comprised of Gstaad, Schoenried, Saanenmoser, Zweisimmen and Rougemont. The nearest of these is Zweisimmen, which is only 20 -25 minutes drive from the chalet via the Jaun pass. The Jaun pass is only ever closed if there has been heavy snowfall and the snowploughs haven't reached it. If this is the case, there is the village of Charmey approximately 12 km away in the other direction, which has a Gondelbahn to a medium size ski area. Charmey is in the Gruyere region (famous for its cheese) and there is also a magnificent castle in Gruyere, a short drive away.
