A bit about what I love about spring in Wengen.

What I love in Spring Wengen: It is most definitely spring here now. I love the spring in Wengen, despite not being that keen on sitting in the sun – it is not very hot in the shade! There is a weight bearing crust on much of the off-piste areas and the piste goes through […]
