It was all worth it when I saw the mountains, lakes, and picturesque town. As soon as I got off the bus, I got picked up to go on a snow shoeing adventure. I would have skied but I don't think the Swiss Alps is the best place to relearn. How does Humpty Dumpty go again?
I snow shoed up a mountain called Isenfluh. (Note: it was blizzarding on the mountain during this whole experience) Going up was the hardest part. At some points, I was walking on top of about 5 feet. Going down the mountain was the best part. We went about halfway down the mountain in the snow shoes. You kinda have to run down it which is even more fun. At one point I was going too fast, I ended up falling on my butt so hard but no worries! The 5 feet of snow cushioned me.
After we trekked halfway down the Mt. Isenfuh, we received traditional Swiss cuisine; cheese fondue with boiled potatoes and bread. Then, I found out that traditional Swiss cuisine smells like stinky feet but tastes amazing.
Once we were filled with fondue, we got to sled the rest of the way down the mountain. In the winter, the town of Isenfluh is a simple cattle town but in the winter it becomes a snowwy mountain. No one plows the roads so they become sledding and skiing hills.
