Video: Ski trip to Klewenalp Stockhütte

Days are getting shorter and shorter and temperatures are slowly, but steadily dropping. Winter is well on its way to the Northern hemisphere. I’m already dreaming about snowy sunny winter days at the ski slopes. While counting the days till then, I’m reminiscing about my past ski trips, more precisely about one particular trip – trip to Klewenalp Stockhütte in Central Switzerland where I’ve skied on a sunny day in March.

Hiking the Grosser Mythen

1st August is Swiss National Day – the public holiday celebrating the foundation of Swiss Confederation.

This action is now regarded as the founding of Switzerland and is annually celebrated all across Switzerland with different events and fireworks.

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.
