Gstaad, Suisse

gstaad-suisse-royal-hotel-and-winter-palaceI learned how to ski in Gstaad when I was a child – young enough to have no real concept of how elegant a resort it was. And by “learn how to ski” I mean my parents evidently strapped a pair of skis on me and had some Italian┬áski instructor tell me to bend my knees before pushing me down a steep mountain. No “bunny” hill for me apparently, I think I screamed the whole way down the first time.
