Ciaspolata (snowshoeing) on the Bachtel mountain

With its 1,115 m, the Bachtel is the second highest peak of Canton Zürich. The impressive snowfalls of the last days made it a perfect location for snowshoeing. Enjoy the panorama!

    Nice winter-time scenes. That’s a fairly good amount of snow, and beautiful setting. M

    Love the Pics. Reminds me of many parts of Canada! My favorite is the trees with the picnic tables. I love the contrast between the horizontal and vertical lines.

    Cheers

      I was skiing last week on the Swiss Alps and I could hear during lunch break a Canadian guy saying that Switzerland reminded him several areas of Canada … was it you 🙂 ? Thanks for the comment!

        Haha…I wish. But the pictures remind me of the Rockies! Hope your trip was awesome!

    Reblogged this on Wilder Man On Rolling Creek and commented:
    My son just won two races in a snowshoeing competition this week. When I saw this these images, from Switzerland, from Lorenzo Borghi on his blog, I knew that I wanted to pass this on through a reblog. Enjoy.
