Sledging almost down to Grindelwald, then back up for a race down back to Wengen, Team Alpine survived the not so beginner (crash) course by laughing all the way down. Last one buys a round of schnapps.
Team Alpine headed up the hill to explore Gstaad Mountain Ride’s motto: Come up to Slow Down. Gstaad Mountain Rides is one of the safest and largest areas for skiing in Switzerland. The Bernese Oberland’s only glacier ski area is suitable for winter sports from mid-October to early May.
From terrain that connects small villages, to one of the world’s only Igloo bars, this Swiss gem is one of a kind. Our favorites were The Horney Bar, named after horned mountain goats (supposedly), and the Nutella Crepes!

Arrival at Gstaad Palace is nothing short of breathtaking. As we discovered the resort, all of us were silent with amazement. As you can see, the alpenglow was the perfect setting for the castle towers that cap the penthouse. From the rooftop, you can view the quaint valley that is home to Gstaad, or simply enjoy a heavenly hot tub in the stars. More to come on this Grand Dame of Gstaad; in the meantime, enjoy a brief movie on Gstaad Palace, and be the first person who can reply to the post with three facts or three former famous guest and we will send you a limited edition 2011 Alpine Koozie!
