White expanses. You. And nothing else.
Have you ever been on a winter hike? Imagine trudging through the white, glittering splendour in winter shoes or snowshoes. Silence reigns all around, all you can hear is your steady breathing and the crunching of the snow under your feet. Let your gaze wander over the snow-covered peaks, meadows, and forests, and breathe in the clear mountain air. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?
A dream in white

Cross-country into the valley
