Snowshoeing in Switzerland

This past Sunday, Nick went snowshoeing for the first time this season. His Christmas present from the family was a pair of his very own snowshoes since this is one of his favorite past times. He went on a four hour snowshoeing expedition with a couple of friends. They started their journey at the base and worked their way up the mountain. At times, they needed to make their own path, which can be very exhausting. In fact, the last 40 minutes was doing exactly that. Once to the top, they enjoyed a nice lunch, saw Samiclaus and Scmutzli with his donkey, and Nick even took his picture with a Swiss family. He plans to go again next Sunday and has already mapped out his destination.
