Ian Hill, our Resort Manager for Switzerland/Grindelwald tells us about a fantastic Treasure Hunt which took place for the first time last Saturday 29th March in Grindelwald and is set to be a  firm favourite on the annual calendar!!

Eager Treasure Hunters!

Ian gives us the lead up to the big event… ” Do you remember the Ski Hosting on the First, those hidden valleys, picturesque mountain huts and towering mountain glaciers? Did you know there was treasure hidden there – yes it’s true……

Treasure chests, buried deep in the snow, up to 30 of them and all of them full of …well, finders, keepers.

Here’s hoping the Ski Hosting day on the First could pay dividends!”

Fantastic display!

The event – over 330 treasure hunters turned up on the day, shovels in hand, seeking out attractive prizes.

Finders Keepers!

Lots of Swiss specialities like sausages, Rösti and Raclette were  on offer to keep us going.  It was a lot of fun and quite hard work but the treasures were worth it! The whole event was fabulous and was followed by an award ceremony and concert.

Fuel for the treasure hunters!

The result – did the ski hosting pay dividends?... did we find the treasure? now that would be telling – come see for yourself!

Success!
