Winter is here

The animals are gone, after a short autumn winter has taken over at Alp Site, tucked in between the mighty Bernese Alps. Nadja and Simon Santschi still have a lot to do: Putting everything away for a safe winter, cleaning stables, barn, and the house. As a last event they hold the “Chästeilet” (cutting and serving the cheese) in September, in their room for weddings and other events they can serve up to 150 people.

Outside the snow has put its mantle on the meadows and calmness on the surroundings. However, the restaurant on Alp Site will only be closed for a while: It opens again on December 14 for the winter season. You can celebrate New Year’s Eve there. A very popular event happens on every Saturday (weather permitting) beginning the end of December: Sledding down the run at nighttime. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?

Winter has taken over on Alp Site.
Ready for the “Chästeilet”.
