... better and better. The city was originally settled by German and Swiss immigrants. Taking a walk down the main drag and the architecture makes that point apparent. It has a Swiss alps feel to it and it's almost odd not seeing snow covering the rooftops. It is the penultimate skiing destination in S.

... there just in time for Christmas, with a few days spare. This would give us enough time to plan and prepare our Christmas dinner. When we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. It was a small town surrounded by snow capped mountains, perfect for Christmas. We booked into a place that was more like a house than a hostel. It was a bit more expensive than our budget, but we thought we'd treat ourselves as it was Christmas. When we checked in, we were given a room ...
