Bussalp evening event
The evening event is on January 15, 18:00 from the Sunstar Hotel. Because of the high avalanche risk, the busses will take us to Lochsteinen (1'424 m), where we get the sledges. If you need a head torch, you can buy one here.

From Lochsteinen, we will sledge down to Grindelwald. From there, we will walk down to the Hotelfor  a buffet dinner at the Sunstar Hotel.
