Capturing the moment
Our office had a lovely workout space
Packing cars and ready to go!
Pictures all the way
Esme not believing where she arrived
Even at the bottom station there is some snow
Veikko,Ella and Esme
Fun fact: to get from the bottom (1600m) to the top (3500m), one must take two gondolas and a “metro”. Yes, the last part of the trip to the top of the glacier includes a train that feels more like a funicular inside the mountain through the stone tunnel.
At the top, we are exposed to some serious wind due fact that we top station is on the ridge of the mountain.
It was great, therefore we go up again
Kamil and Veikko
View from the top. 3500m station is surrounded by well over 4000m peaks which create very dramatic and spectacular views.
Smaller chair lifts and wide slopes

On the way to Lausanne. The great, thing about Switzerland is train travel. We are glad we took 8-day pass for all transportation means around the country. It allowed us to freely jump on any train, bus, funicular or metro we wanted to. The views from the train in the country are stunning.
