holding her brand new 2016/2017 season pass for Jungfrau Ski Region in her hand.*
And what a start I got. 4 weeks after I was hiking here in T-shirt I was now skiing in knee-high powder. Not a bad start for a season, and definitely a good confirmation that the season pass for Jungfrau Ski Region is worth the money. Especially with the 50% local discount, including free local trains and busses and cable cars, and various discounts for other train rides, events and other ski resorts around the world. And with little extra the season pass can be extended to Adelboden even. Quite a nice deal, and as you can see from the pictures, awesome location for little getaway, just one hour train ride away from the current basecamp.
* The pass also includes ridiculously blurred face shot, which has already caused many laughs. Traveling incognito and keeping people happy, so to speak. Just like the stars of the old times, looking solitude in the Alps, and more precisely in places like the Hotel Bellevue Des Alpes in Kleine Scheidegg^ (“minor watershed”) mountain pass at an elevation of 2’061m. From here, it’s only one stop left, the top of Europe aka Jungfraujoch.
I run to catch moments like these. By the lake, just before sunset, snowy mountain tops turning pink, air fresh and only sound from nature.
Simple as that. And well I may keep on running also to keep my activity levels up, and body and mind fit. In addition, now after almost 6 months here, I have to thank Interlaken for offering so nice environment for this habit of mine.
