Sledging for Relaxation. Sledging for Relaxation.
No sooner said than done - we dress warmly and decide to make our way to the Schattenlaganthütte. Our host has given us the tip that it is as peaceful in Schattenlagant in winter as nowhere else in the valley. And since there should also be a hut at the end of the tour, this is the perfect destination for us.

Experience report of a downhill beginner on why daring departures are just the ticket for sporty families. Here I am in the Wallride Mountain & Bike Store in Bürserberg. All around me are heavy, solid bikes with fat tires and huge suspension.
Turquoise in every direction? Turquoise in every direction?
Anyone who has ever stepped of the lift at the ‘Lünerseebahn’ at an altitude of 1,970m will know that the Lünersee is turquoise blue. On some days it almost looks like the blue of the South Seas, where the palm trees are replaced by high Alpine peaks. On other days, when the wind ruffles the surface water, it has a milky shimmer the colour of a true turquoise mineral. So, the question is whether the Lünersee is turquoise from everywhere?

As of today, I understand the caterpillar Nimmersatt. She eats from leaf to leaf, cherry and apple, until she becomes a butterfly that dances across the multicolored meadow that lies before us. Why do I understand her? This meadow not only smells good, it tastes good too
