The sight of the snow-capped mountains and the fresh snow, not only lets you have fun while skiing, but it also lets you make some memories that you cherish for eternity. And when it comes to the Swiss Alps, they are the best experience while moving. The Alps are quite expansive, and staying in a perfect resort helps to experience them at their best. In fact, in Kandersteg, Switzerland, there is a resort that gives guests a new way to experience the mountains: An almost 2,500-foot metal slide takes visitors down the sides of a green mountain, through patches of wildflowers and forests of lush green trees.

Mountain Coaster Gives A Panoramic Views Of The Swiss Alps

Hotel Oeschinensee’s mountain coaster is a toboggan slide that gives riders sweeping panoramic views of the UNESCO World Heritage Site as they slide their way down. To experience this, riders mount their single-person sledge which starts as a roller coaster and then turns into an epic slide with moving views of the Alps. Doesn’t this sound like a snow roller coaster?
