Winter has arrived--the Saanenland had several big snowstorms this week. Although temperatures were above freezing most days, the nights dipped down to a very cold -18 C. Approximately 20 cm of snow still stands.

Thanks to Anzeiger reader Ruedi Hählen for sending us his photo.



Northern Japan enjoys the biggest snows-deep enough to bury ski lifts. Switzerland gets very little snow, in comparison.
Christmas and there is very little snow. The lifts should have opened for skiing a few weeks ago when there was better snow.

Fancy new valley station

Bergbahnen Destination Gstaad AG (BDG) moved into its new offices in the newly built valley station of the Bergbahn Eggli at Easter. The multifunctional building fits beautifully into the landscape while featuring a markedly contemporary design.
