"It had been snowing heavily all day! It was 6 p.m. and we were coming home from work. Just enough time to slip on our ski gear, grab our boots and boards and jump into the car for a 20-minute ascent on a snow-covered road. The ski lift at Les Prés-d’Orvin took us up to the summit to rediscover the fabulous view of Biel lit up at night. This was just the beginning, we also enjoyed the beautiful scenery surrounded by fir trees and 50cm of fresh powder!"
