Natural Art Underway at Grindelwald

By Linda Tancs

In central Switzerland lies a tiny glacier village guarded by the Eiger, Moench and Jungfrau mountain area prized by skiers. Thankfully, it’s accessible by car and bus, unlike other resorts in the area, so there’s no excuse not to attend the World Snow Festival in town. Beginning today and running through 24 January, the ice rink in the village’s epicenter will play host for the 27th season to a world of talent practicing their fine arts amidst a canvas of snow and ice. Past designs have ranged from a herd of elephants to the Swiss flag symbol. You can chat with the artists and maybe have a hand in creating this year’s masterpieces. Something to do après-ski. Best of all, it’s free!
