Winter Snowshoe Outing, February 8, 2020


Participants: Bev, Jens, Peter, Pam, Debbie, Fränzi

Six eager participants met at the Sunnbühl gondola station in Kandersteg and, after a coffee and gipfeli pause, we set off on our snowshoes. It had snowed in the past days, so there were fields of pristine snow, but the tracks for walking, skiing and cross-country skiing had been laid, and the signposts for snowshoe trails were set for following. However, the smooth snowfields soon attracted us and we went off-path, meandering up and down, heading to the Arvenwald. There we started to follow the trail of a lone snowshoer, who had explored under and around trees and found steeper hills to climb up and down. After two hours, we settled down on a mound of snow for our lunch. With the sunny weather, we weren‘t the only ones out for the day. Some adventurous skiers were up on a steep slope, learning (we guessed) to zoom down quickly. Others walked towards the Schwarenbach Hotel. Families went sledding or tried out their skis. We ended our walk about 15.00, found a table in the sun at the restaurant, and had an enjoyable last round of liquid socialising before taking the gondola down. Going on Saturday was great, as crowds were thinner than on Sundays and we could make our own tracks in the snow most of the time.
