Ski season 2015/2016 summary

Winter has come to an end. Most of ski resorts shut their lifts and closed their slopes. Looking back, this ski season was great. Despite I’ve only skied in Switzerland, I’ve been to some amazing places where I enjoyed amazing alpine landscape and had great time at the slopes.

In total, I’ve spent 7 days skiing:

Sledging down the Eiger Run in Grindelwald

The weather forecast for the past weekend wasn’t too promising – the rain in Luzern and snow in the most of the alpine resorts. While neither I nor my husband likes to ski in such conditions, we decided to skip skiing this weekend.

I like this area because it offers broad variety of slopes of all difficulties which are well connected. You can easily ski from Kleine Scheidegg to Männlichen and back (or reverse) without even taking your skis off. Continue reading
