These two pictures were taken on top of the Eggishorn mountain in Fiesch/Switzerland on January 24th. One picture shows the Aletsch Glacier, the largest glacier in the alps. The other one shows the 'skyline' of the alps including the famous Matterhorn. Both pictures taken from the only safe place (risk of avalanches is extremely high actually).

These pictures show the Bettmeralp in the valley of Valais (Wallis) in Switzerland. Actually, the height of the snow is about 2 meters (7 feet) only...   not worth the mention!  ;D

Most of the snow just fell within 2 days! Some places as Zermatt (home of the famous Matterhorn) had to be closed for traffic during several days because of the extrem danger of avalanches. I tried to make my way through the snow without snow shoes. No chance, I wasn't able to hire a 'sub-snow-marine'  ;)

Some infos:

#bettmeralp02: one more meter and the church would totally be covered with snow
#bettmeralp04: the blackboard of the tourist office
#bettmeralp05: would you cross that tiny bridge?

Chasseral Mountain, Jura/Switzerland

The Chasseral is the highest mountain of the Jura ridge (about 1600 m / 5300 feet) in Switzerland. It offers excellent snow shoe opportunities. These shots were taken on January 23rd, 2018.

The end of winter, maybe. It looks and feels like mid-January out there.  >:(
