Day 1: Panorama Tour to Schwarzhorn

Meet your mountain guide in Grindelwald and take the cable car to First. Descend on the slopes to Schilt, where you will mount your skins and begin your tour. In the early morning sun you will climb leisurely towards Schwarzhorn; there will be only a few hairpin turns before reaching the summit. At the top, enjoy the mountain air, alpine views, and a snack from your backpack. A slushy springtime descent will keep you sharp as you make your way back towards Grindelwald.
