The travels of Herr and Frau WildSnow. A few days ago we parked our road show in Thun, Switzerland to cover nearby Fritschi. The idea, check out items such as an interesting little ski binding called Vipec (more coming, lots to write about.) As we did a lot of driving today we’ll stick with travelog.
We were delighted to stay in Thun, a historic village (they all are, really) with Berner Oberland above, catching our attention with such names as Eiger. I considered running up the North Face of the Eiger but my ice tools were dull, so we settled for a few walks around Thun.
We then enjoyed the drive through alpine Switzerland to Berghaus Sulzfluh, a century+ old alpine lodge near the border with Austria. We’ll stay here for four nights. The snowpack isn’t Sud Tirol or Colorado, but I so love the alpine ambiance as everyone from families to hard-core “speedup” ski tourers show up to enjoy the alpine — and a beer.
