Snow in Gstaad, Switzerland

March 28, 2017

Huus Gstaad Switzerland in the SnowThis was our first winter while living in Europe, and trips to the mountains were a high priority for us. Compared to the U.S., winters here just feel different — there’s something magical about the quaint cobblestone streets, lit-up towns and the Swiss Alps in the snow.

We had the pleasure of staying at a local ski resort called Huus Gstaad and it was one for the books. Located in a valley with endless mountains and wood cabins, Gstaad’s winter ski scene is known for being upscale and trendy. We spent each day trying a different activity — sledding, skiing, even snowshoeing! I especially loved exploring the town of Gstaad, which is filled with cozy restaurants and beautiful shops.

Gstaad is definitely a splurge, but if you’re looking for something romantic and active this Swiss town cannot be beat.
