Visiting the Swiss Alps

We got an early start on a Friday evening and awoke in Switzerland to glorious sunshine and the promise of snowy slopes not far off!

The cable car up wasn’t half as terrifying as I remember the last ones being… vertigo is quite the deal.

We even had time for a “before” photo…

…and to find our balance on the sled for the first gentle descent.

A few still-smiling portraits before the serious stuff and off we went!

Some of course had it harder than others 🙂

But overall the snow was great, not too many people on the slopes and we got down almost without injury.

We’re so thankful to our hosts for giving us a place to stay, feeding us, letting us steal their yoghurt for non-food purposes and generally being great! Here are a few more impressions from the weekend for you all…
