About the decision, not to go to Grindelwald:
After a lot of research, we came to the conclusion that there is a 20% chance that we won't be able to take off in Grindelwald due to downwinds. This seems too high to me.

The Alpine region lies between an area of high pressure centred over the North Sea and an area of low pressure over the central Mediterranean region in a Bise current. With the increasing influence of high pressure, the air mass will dry out during the course of the day.
On the northern side of the Alps, widespread high fog with a base of 1200-1600 metres and an upper limit around 2500 dropping to 2000. In the Alps mostly clear, but in the large Alpine valleys initially partly 4-6/8 with a base of 1500-2000 m, in the afternoon 3-5/8 flat Cu or Sc 1800-2300 m.
