After a big dump of snow over christmas, a nice day again, so I went out to enjoy the fresh powder on my snowshoes.
Starting from Jaun, with its nice waterfall, I headed up towards the Chalet du Soldat.
The village of Jaun still in the morning shade.
By making a little detour, I had the pleasure of walking through knee-deep powder, breaking trail for at least half an hour. A look back at the fresh tracks I left behind.
After more climbing, I arrived at the chalet, with nice views of the Gastlosen towering just above it.
And a view to the other side.
A nice christmas-postcard view on the way down.
Almost back at Jaun again, a pretty creek with snow covered trees.
