Take for example the velogemel, which is a cross between a bicycle, a sled and skis.
You can experience it on the final 9 kilometres of the Big Pintenfritz tobogganing run, At 15 kilometres in all, is the longest in Europe. The full distance is usually completed by conventional sled, as the sleds have to be hauled up the top third of the run on foot. If you want to try the legendary descent on a velogemel, you can hire one at Grindelwald railway station.
From there you can take the bus all the way up to Bussalp at 1,800 metres above sea level.
There is a mountain restaurant with views of the world-famous trio of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau and the descent is at a perfect pace with just enough speed and a bit of a challenge in terms of balance.
This is just one of the many activities available in Switzerland in the wintertime. Others are skiing and snowboarding, toboggan sledding, going into an ice cave, riding cable cars and, of course fun Ski Apres!
