Winter team event 2011
28. Februar 2011
Our backpacks were well and truly filled with warm clothing when we left on 25 February for the way up to the igloo village high above Gstaad. After quite a bumpy ride by cable car we finally reached our destination "Saanerslochgrat". First a warm-up with a steaming mug of hot spiced wine at the snow bar and a splendid view over the top of the Bernese Overland.Afterwards, Rob and Simon, our friendly igloo guides, led us around in the charming igloo suites. With a lot of love for detail each room or igloo cave was individually arranged. Every year, artist from Switzerland and abroad let the changing topic motives wake up to life.
In the Jurassic Park restaurant igloo, we could enjoy three different sorts of Fondue at the feet of an ice T-Rex. Late at night, some of us who were still fit for activities, were equipped with snow shoes and sticks and left for a moon snowshoe walk. For those who preferred an easy time, a Jacuzzi invited them for some relaxation. After an exceptional night in the thermal sleeping bag with temperatures below freezing, breakfast the day after didn't leave any wishes unfulfilled
Looking back, our winter event was extraordinary (once again).
