About Tracy Willmott

We live in Wengen with our two children. It is such a special place to live.We enjoy welcoming our guests and sharing our local knowledge. Whether you visit in the spring or summer you will find some fantastic walks and beautiful views at every corner.

In the winter we are lucky enough to share our passion with all our guests at Ski Set, Wengen and when we are not working in the shop we love to be out skiing! We are a family who love to ski, between us we have lots of knowledge about all the ski areas, affordable restaurants up the mountain and places to go when you just want to enjoy the mountains.

Tracy Willmott purchased this chalet in 2010

Why Tracy Willmott chose Switzerland

We purchased the property because of the locations, a short walk from the main centre of Wengen, the close proximity to the Lauberhorn finish area and Innerwengen chair lift.

The beautiful location and convenient position of the chalet.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet is situated in a lovely part of Wengen called Schiltwald, with very pleasant neighbours and a lovely atmosphere.

Wengen rocks

In Tracy's appartment eight people can find place. Kitchen and saloon are well equiped. And there is even a cave to put the skis. In Tracys appartment you can find all you need to spend your holidays.

For people who like skiing, winter and wonderful mountains, Wengen is the favourite destination. From Tracy's home, the walk takes 5minutes to catch next skilift.

To get to the village, the walk takes about 15minutes. If we are in a hurry, we always can call Rüedu the taxidriver - a real legend of the Berner Oberland.

We came the last two years to Tracy, and we have already booked the appartment for 2017. Any questions?

A 2010 review of the the top 10 best ski resort views in the world said of Wengen 'It is one of the worlds most spectacular regions. The views from almost every point in Wengen are awesome in their majesty.' The ski area of Wengen is where the Lauberhorn World Cup downhill ski races and a summer walking/climbing resort. The village sits at 4180 ft (1274m) below the massive peaks of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. The highest train station in Europe at 11333 ft!

Wengen is not new, the area around Wengen has been visited and inspired by many famous people - Mendleson, Wagner, Byron amongst them. Byron composed his poem Manfred captivated by the view of the Jungfrau from Wengenalp. Turner painted the Stubach falls in Lauterbrunnen possibly due to the beauty of the sight of the water turning to mist and glinting in the sun as it falls nearly 1000ft. This is the 12th highest waterfall in the world. The area is a World Heritage Site - the only Swiss ski area that is - it is stunning.

Other Activities: hiking, climbing

Ski: There are three grades of piste In this area - blue, red and black. The blues are nice 'cruisy' runs like the green gradings you might find in France and can be often be summer roads. The reds are also quite relaxing with only a few blacks. There is also plenty of off-piste skiing and some lovely tree-lined routes lower down, an ideal area for bad weather skiing in trees . A great snowpark is at First for the tricksters amongst you. Generally the area is very easy to navigate with all slopes from Mannlichen and Kleine Scheidegg and the 'First' area heading toward Grindlewald, where cable cars or trains bring you back up the mountain. Over on the Murren side there is plenty of great skiing and again, here is the famous 'James Bond' Piz Gloria revolving retsuarant, with train or cable cars allowing you to return even after the pistes have closed. It is rare to find a big queue for any lift. There are also some great sledging runs, including 15kms from Bussalp down to Grindlewald.
