Thanks Annika, I found the relevant times in the SBB timetable which included the replacement bus times which is how I realised it will be a long trip. It has just occurred to me that it might even be worth doing the trip this year using the bus and then again next year using the normal route as the two might be distinctly different experiences! It's worth considering anyway as a possibility. We usually go armed with loads of plans for all kinds of weather situations then decide exactly what to do the night before after checking the weather forecasts on the internet. Part of the fun is making these last minute decisions and we have found all sorts of interesting places due to these sudden decisions like finding the fascinating Axalp carving trail purely because the planned trip up Brienzer Rothorn couldn't happen due to a rockslide blocking the route on the day we planned to go! As to next year it will be difficult to stop us making regular trips to Switzerland now we are so in love with the country and all it has to offer! I will indeed send a report after our return.
