What a spectacular view! The best thing about skiing was seeing vistas like this! But I was a very tentative skier getting back down! LOL!

Beautiful view. See anyone on a sled? I took up sledding when we lived there, it’s a fast way down.

Quite the view. Back when I did it my primary reason for downhill skiing was just being on the mountain and the views it offered.
I do some hardcore skiing with friends of mine every January. My family trip is generally more sedate, and I often take in the views on these easier runs.

Spectacular! Nice job with the pano too.
Thanks, Allan. I don't do many panos. The photomerge tool in PS CC is amazing and very easy to use.

I think the sledding is now confined to the Gornergrat area. We did see some folks on sleds. I prefer a bit more control!!
I hit a fire hydrant in Austria on my sled, knocked me out for awhile. I still have my sled, it's a fast one. Never tried skiing, heard it wasn't great for people with bad knees and I've ruined mine biking.
