I've read that while town or mountain-hopping, I can lighten my load by sending my baggage ahead by dropping it off at the train station (in this case, Zurich airport after purchasing my ticket to Lauterbrunnen) and paying the 10 SF, maximum 55 pounds. My bag supposedly should show up within 24 hours.
I'll be backpacking and staying at one of the hostels, so would it be safe to send it ahead? My backpack is a top loading one and there is no way to lock it, but of course, there won't be much valuables, just clothes, toiletries, and the like.
