True Alp:

In Switzerland, an alp is a cow pasture. Just above Grindelwald, the slopes are just that: summer pastures for Swiss brown cows. We skied endless undulating terrain between the barns and fences. In front of the barn in the uper right, you can just make out two people on sledges, or Hšrnerschlitten. These wooden toboggan-like devices shared the slopeswith the skiers. There were more people on sleds than snowboards.
