Arrived later afternoon Friday after a train segment was canceled and had to reroute via Zurich HB instead of directly through Bern, which caused a few hour delay.

I was lucky enough to experience the first snow of the season for the resort on 17 September 2022. Just a light dusting and it melted quickly as the beautiful weekend unfolded.
