When you ski in the Alps, you’re skiing mountains not runs. The sense of open space is incredible and one of the things that makes skiing in Switzerland so epic.
Here’s a shot of our 9-year-old Devon skiing in Grindelwald, Switzerland last weekend. Believe it or not, this was taken on a bluebird Saturday, i.e. where are the other people?
It’s not that the resort was not crowded — it was. It’s quite simply that there’s so much skiable terrain that in good conditions, you can always find uncrowded slopes.
The other remarkable aspect of the Alps is the sheer size of the mountains. In the Jungfrau Region, they tower over you at all times. It’s exciting and at times unnerving.
