As ya'll know, I spent the last 7 days in the Swiss alps skiing. I did not have to the chance to go for the past 8 years, although I had started skiing at the young age of 5 and my parents had dragged me every year since then... but swimming then put a really big restraint on my "extracurricular" activities, and the skiing had to be put on ice... so to speak. The trip was fantastic, seeing the same old and familiar places again was so weird, it seemed almost like a constant deja vu when skiing down those slopes I had been on so many times before. The weather was great, we had TONS of snow and I took TONS of pictures, the best of which I would like to share with you all... enjoy the show! A view from the balcony of my apartment: Another view from the balcony, the Dente Blanche and the Matterhorn (Cervin) behind it. One of my favorite mountains which is shaped like a bat... The Etherolla, with 2450m the highest mountain in the local ski region: A lift going up the long side of the Etherolla... A long transit path from top of the Etherolla to the next valley, which we usually go to just because there is taller mountains to ski on and the quality of the snow is much better, too... Many more to follow!!!
