My Swiss Ski Adventure: Instagram Diary


Last Saturday I returned to the UK from a week skiing in Switzerland with my mum, dad and brother. It was so good to get back on the slopes as it had been a couple of years since our last ski holiday. We stayed in Wengen at the foot of the imposing Eiger – Mönch – Jungfrau mountain range, the highest point in Europe.

Wengen has staged the famous Lauberhorn World Cup downhill race since 1930 so we made sure we had a go ourselves on our last day! The village is virtually car free and the pistes can be accessed by cable car or cogwheel railway and are framed by beautiful glaciers that earned the region Unesco natural heritage status. We also spent a couple of days skiing in Grindelwald and Murren, and visited Schilthorn, the 2,970 metre high summit of the Bernese Alps where the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service was filmed – there is now a 007 attraction at the peak complete with a rotating restaurant to take advantage of the panoramic views. We stayed at the Alpenrose Hotel which was just amazing; they have the nicest staff and the best food – half board included a six course dinner every night! I’d thoroughly recommend the hotel to anyone visiting the region.

I hope you enjoy my pictures and they give a little peak into our swiss adventure. All were taken on my iPhone 5C so no fancy photography, just some Instagram filters!
