Late Awakening in the Snow

by Chikashi

We have done the 6km Preda-Bergün sled route a countless times over the years.

The route is good fun on fresh snow and really rather thrilling on icy days.  Apparently, the record is just under 5 minutes, but one would want some serious protective gear if going that fast…

Upon reaching the end of the route, there is a little area for sliding down on large inner tubes.  We always thought that it looked a bit daft and boring, so we never bothered trying it.  Until this winter.

And, we found it to be addictive.  A bit slow on the uptake…
