A little snowy story when I was in Switzerland. The plan was to have some ski lessons in the mountains, but the reality was a little different 😀
Anyway, basically there are around 30 ski resorts in Switzerland. The most expensive ones are “St. Moritz”, “Gstaad”, “Flims Laax Farela”, and “Zermatt” (the most successful resort).
I wanted to go to St. Moritz cause it’s the most familiar one for me, but like I just said, it’s expensive!!! so I needed to find a more affordable one, which also nearer to my position, at the Jungfrau Mountain region. Our final choice was finally a ski resort called Grindelwald. EXCITED!
We drove up to the mountain, a few twists and turns, slight change in elevation, passing such awesome views for photo ops (so beautiful!), and arrived safely in Grindelwald. Our GPS didn’t fail us!
The town is larger than we thought and the streets were a little confusing. We went straight which was apparently a dead end (no route out except the one we took coming in). And after a while we finally managed to find a safe place to park the car.
Grindelwald is one of the world’s classic and original ski resorts, and very pretty. There are more than 50 hotels here and many good bars and restaurants.
We stopped by the bakery and a restaurant right next to it to enjoy our Swiss food for lunch. Yummmm!!
After that, it was all about enjoying the snow! Grindelwald has 1 big snowboard park, 72 ski trails, and 8 cable cars. Enough to entertain everyone including me!! and btw I just found out that Grindelwald is not only a ski resort. Grindelwald ski area is also included in the list of UNESCO World Natural Heritage areas. So imagine how nice it is. If you wanna know how great the sight is, watch James Bond movie “His Majesty’s Secret Service” which took place around Jungfrau Mountains Region.
I spent the whole day enjoying the Grindelwald ski resort. LOVED it!!!!
The two things, love and snow, that make the world look fresh again
