    Hi.
    Assuming in 2022 or 2023 world travel resumes to some extent , can anyone recommend the best Nordic ski location/s in the Bern area in Switzerland.
    My cousin has moved to Bern. It would be good to visit her and ski for two weeks.
    I like skinny XC skiing on groomed surfaces as much as I like BC skiing on wide BC XC skis in some ungroomed longer day touring areas.

    The more I look at the options on the interwebby the more I like it.

    Would late January be the best time for this area which sits between 1300 - 1600 M.
    ?
    Thanks

    Pretty sure that’s the other continent but I could be wrong.
