First is a mountain on the sunny side of the Grindelwald valley. A modern 6 seater gondola is taking people within 30 min. to the top. It is a skiing area in the winter time, with a great selection of winter hiking tracks, like for example to the Faulhorn, from where one can sledge (toboggan) down to Grindelwald village on a 10 miles track, the longest in the world. In the summer time, the First area is a hiking paradise and also a great area for bikers. From First the Tandem Paragliding pilots start their flight down to the village of Grindelwald. Up at First, there is a restaurant, offering incredible panoramic view to the montain chain of Wetterhorn, Schreckhorn, Finsteraarhorn, Fiescherwand ,Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. All the lifts in the area are expensive but First offer a 50% discount with the vistors card which you get when you check-in to your hotel or apartment. A good hike is to take the lift to First and walk to the Bachaplsee and return to the middle station at Borth via the trail to Waldspitz. Some wonderful moorland scenery and it is a moderate grade trail and mostly downhill.
