    Hi, great post and pics. Do you know if snow shoes walking is allowed in the cross country trail at Lauterbrunnen? We plan to do some cross country skiing there in January (at a leisurely pace) but my mum will come along and she can’t ski so wondering if she can snow shoes along with us for part of the trail. Is the 12km trail one way or a loop? Thanks.
