... run. At this point the snow started coming down even heavier, and visibility was becoming an issue,so we came back up the hill and skied down to JJ.

We had promised JJ apple fritters at the restaurant at Brandegg, so we put him on the train while we skied down the easy blue .

... sweet nutty slice- kind of like baklava) to have on the road. The drive from Lucerne to Lauterbrunnen was really beautiful and we went through a few mountain passes.
