This year's event takes place on February 23 and 24. A giant snow slide, ski carousel and tent where children can paint their faces are all part of the "Winter Games" in Hasliberg.

A "fantasy slalom" and other races are also planned. Parents can take advantage of special introductory snowboard or carving ski lessons. The equipment hire is included in the price.

Hasliberg is the main ski region close to Meiringen and Lake Brienz, and is recognised as one of the family-friendliest resorts in the Swiss Alps.

It has 60 kilometres of groomed slopes (stretching up to more than 2,400 metres above sea level), 35 kilometres of winter hiking paths and 20 kilometres of cross-country trails. There are a half pipe and funpark for snowboarders, and of course, a snow playground for children.

If the weather is disagreeable, it's worth visiting the Sherlock Holmes museum in Meiringen in the valley below, or a woodcarving atelier in Brienz.

It was at the Reichenbach Falls outside of Meiringen where Sherlock Holmes and his archenemy Professor Moriarty fell to their deaths. Brienz draws thousands of tourists each year who come to admire traditional woodcarvings of alpine fauna and nativity scenes.
