Winter came to Europe early this year. First snow covered the mountains and allowed many non-glacier ski resorts in the Alps to open earlier than usual. My husband and I took advantage of this situation and started our ski season on the first weekend in December. As this was also the weekend of my birthday, we celebrated it while swishing down the perfectly prepared slopes of my favoured ski resort Melchsee-Frutt in Central Switzerland.
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.

The spring is in its full bloom, and I finally managed to complete the video of my February ski trip to Melchsee Frutt, a small ski resort in Central Switzerland. I hope you all enjoyed this trip down memory lane.
Klewenalp-Stockhütte is small ski resort in Central Switzerland I have visited in mid-March with my husband. This ski resort consist of two areas: Klewenalp, which is accessible by aerial gondola from the village of Beckenried and Stockhütte , which is accessible by cable car from the village of Emmeten.
Sankt Moritz is a well known ski resort in the Upper Engadine (Oberengadin) region, in the canton Graubünden. It lies at the 1856 m altitude and has a reputation of being the birthplace of Alpine winter tourism. One of the first ski lifts in Switzeland began running in there in 1935. The town has hosted the Winter Olympics twice: in 1928 and 1948. In February it had also hosted the 2017 FIS Ski World Championship. As such, it was a clear choice for this year’s annual ski trip with my father, brother and husband.
In January I’ve skied the snowy slopes of Kleine Scheidegg – Männlichen ski area located in the Swiss Alps above the village of Grindelwald in Jungfrau Region . You can read more about this trip here; here is the video of the snaps from that great day on snow. Hope you’ll enjoy it!
What to do on a sunny February day in Switzerland? You go skiing! Previous Saturday my husband and I did just that. We went to Melchsee Frutt, one of our favourite places in Central Switzerland.
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.
After we already thought winter has packed its bags and left for the southern hemisphere, it has returned and whitened the landscape with fresh spring snow. At that occasion, it’s time to write about my last day of 2015/16 ski season, I’ve spent at beautiful Melchsee-Frutt in Central Switzerland.
Jungfrau Region is with its majestic alpine scenery one of my favourite regions of Switzerland. It is an area I always like to return to. After a great sledging trip to Grindelwald few weeks ago, my husband and I returned to this region two weeks later to go skiing to our favourite slopes of the region Kleine Scheidegg-Männlichen.
After our trips to Zermatt in November in December my husband and I were showing our photos and praising the beauty of Zermatt village to our families. My father, who is a avid skier, was fascinated. Every winter he comes to visit us in Lucerne to spend some quality time together. Impressed by our Zermatt experiences he asked us, if we could organise ski trip to this lovely village. Of course, we did.
One of the perks of living in Lucerne in Switzerland is the proximity of many great Alpine ski resorts. Previous Sunday I went to explore the slopes of one of those resorts Flumserberg.
Flumserberg is mid-sized resort located in the scenic mountains above Lake Walen (Walensee) between Zürich and Chur. Conveniently located app. 45 minutes from Zürich and easy accessible by car and public transport (train station is app. 200m from the cable car station) is very popular destination for skiing. On the busiest days of the year it can get really packed. Continue reading
