Dear MySwissAlps members and visitors,

First of all, we wish you all the best for 2018. And for everyone celebrating Christmas: happy holidays!

Secondly, a big thank you to all loyal visitors of MySwissAlps, including forum contributors, trip report authors, newsletter subscribers and followers on our social media channels. We're looking back at an interesting year: Lucas and Chantal joined the team as forum moderators. We've worked hard on adding information (our new Davos page, for example), keeping everything up to date, and a lot of technical stuff behind the scenes. Still lots of plans left for 2018. We hope you'll stick around to keep an eye on what we do!

For anyone considering to buy a train pass: the first and last weeks of the year are traditionally a bit of a mess, to be honest. Pass information is being updated for the new year, and retailers will be changing their prices. Some also perform maintenance on their website and might not be fully operational for a couple of days between Christmas and early January. If you have any questions, feel free to start a new thread and ask us.

Pass prices will increase. If you're sure about your travel dates in 2018, then take a look at HappyRail this week: www.happyrail.com/en/s wiss-pass-railpass-switzerland. At the moment they still charge the lower 2017 prices, even for passes to be used in 2018. Update December 21: prices for 2018 have been increased now.

Annika, Arno, Chantal, Lucas

Hi Arno,

Thanks for the season's greetings and good wishes for the new year! I wish the same to you, Annika, Lucas and Chantal.

I can imagine it's a huge workload keeping this site going and up-to-date, so thanks for that. We would be lost without it!

As I have said before, I haven't seen any other site on the internet that can hold a candle to MySwissAlps! I am glad to have discovered it in good time to make the most of my trips to Switzerland in autumn and at Christmas last year, and I continue to use it in preparation for my next trip in 2019.

Happy Holidays to all! And I echo the sentiment that this is an amazing site for research, questions and details on Switzerland and travel. Thanks to all who take the time to give such good information. I'm not yet done asking questions for our upcoming trip in Spring 2018!
