Sarah Thompson, who has been my best mate from home since I was 11 years old is visiting!
Yesterday we went for a walk up to the Albishorn which was stunning, a real winter wonderland while we tried to figure out if it was worth sticking to our original plan to go to Glarus.
After a lot of time debating, weather forecast checking and calling the lift station at Brügg to see whether or not we could actually get up to our guesthouse (www.berggasthaus-biel.ch )we bit the bullet and drove down to Altdorf to find it was running (just about) and arrived at the guesthouse at 15:30 in the afternoon.
The fondue was amazing
The avalanche risk was really high this morning
So we did a conservative snow shoe tour around the ski resort – we were warned about 3 times not to wander far
And Sarah got her first alpine adventure experience!
