Opening of ski season in Grindelwald

A week and half ago, my husband and I finally started ski season and went skiing to one of our favourite places ski, to Grindelwald in Berner Oberland. Some of my followers are probably aware I love this ski resort. Ski slopes there are great, the landscape is stunningly beautiful, the infrastructure is good and it is close enough to Luzern for a day ski trip.

I already wrote about skiing in Grindelwald few times before – you can read about my trips here and here. This trip was no different. Again, we skied our favourite Kleine Scheidegg-Männlichen ski slopes. The sun was out, snow conditions were perfect and we had splendid time skiing. I won’t bore you with the details. Instead, I’ll let my photos to speak for me. Hope you’ll enjoy them!
