Issue 1|2018 Editorial

Fri, 26. Jan. 2018


The Saanenland is sporting some old cable cars. Old enough to be outdated but not old enough to be antiques. And if they should get to that second stage, I wouldn’t want to ride up on a mountain with them.

The recent update on the Saanersloch gondola and the one on the Eggli in this issue show that the BDG won’t let it get that far. After the mountain restaurants and the snow making facilities, the cable cars are being replaced and modernised.

Over the last few winters, additional offers were introduced for a better guest experience, be it an elaborately built and maintained fun park, family events, or a short and simple but effective Klangpiste (sound piste) to name just a few.

Most importantly, though, every-
body feels well treated by the friendly staff. Let me seize the occasion to thank them for the many times they made my life easier by helping my younger one onto a chair lift. That probably made the biggest difference to me. So this goes to all who make sure that we get to the top comfortably and safely. Thanks!

Best regards,

Markus Iseli,
Publishing Director & Editor in Chief

Two people die in avalanche

Heavy precipitation over the last days and weeks raised the risk of avalanches to a 4 on the northern side of the Alps and to a 5, the highest number on the scale of the Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research, in wide parts of the Valais and the Grisons.
