We loved Wengen for all that you could do in the snow in addition to skiing. Their are a number of toboggan runs that are a ton of fun. The setting is absolutely beautiful and everything you would expect from a classic alpine village. Slopes were a bit icy, but there are a ton of available trails if you get the full pass (giving you access to Grindelwald and Murren as well). You can ski slopes from Kleinne Scheidegg to Mannliechen to Grindelwald and literally ride for hours without touching the lift again. We can't wait go go back.
