In January we had gone to Engelberg, in February to Klosters, and this time we drove up a different valley, through Chur (the capital of Graubunden), 1.5 hours to Flims. I had remembered my parents taking a fun business trip there back when I was growing up, but I don't think I'd ever been myself. We see signs to Chur right here in Zürich, because that's a city the highway leads to from here, but I'd never seen the town itself.
You can see the rest of my Flims ski photos here.
It was super bright - so much so that my iPhone's built-in camera couldn't handle it and took photos that looked like nighttime, black and white, instead of bright blue and white.
It was super cold and windy at the top, 2810 metres, but just fine lower down.
The snow at the bottom was very crusty and icy in the morning, and like granulated sugar mixed with butter in the afternoon. Slushy. But the snow higher up was just lovely, so we stayed up there the whole time, until we had to ski back to the car.
We are so very grateful and appreciative of the stage our kids have gotten to, at ages 14 and 11 - they carry all their own gear and don't complain, and ski fast enough to make staying together as a group a real pleasure. They enjoy skiing and it's a great family activity in the winter here. Yay for God who made the mountains and the snow and brought us here to live.
