Switzerland Is a Snowy Marvel According to This Instagram

The country's dramatic natural landscape is at its best during winter.

There's a reason people flock to Switzerland for skiing, snowboarding, and other mountain sports: the Swiss Alps. And apparently photographers like Martina Bisaz love the country just as much for all its snowy glory. And lucky for us, she likes to her weekend adventures on her Instagram feed — take a gander:

Good morning from Latsch! A little sad to leave this place today. Because i have to leave my cat here for the time i will be in Cuba. My parents will take care of him. Thank you so much @obisaz! ❤️ I know it's the best place for him, but he is simply too scared of everything he doesnt know. I hope he gets used to my other cat tequila too.

It's no surprise Bisaz is inspired by the mountains, since she grew up in a small village in the mountains near Chur, Switzerland. However she eventually moved to Zurich for school (where she studied Scientific Illustration) and now travels to mountain ranges in her free time to capture them and their natural beauty.

Found this cabin with a view yesterday while skiing for the first time again after two years here in Gstaad. This place here is full of cute little cabins. And then all this fresh snow!😍. Thanks @saanewaldlodge for having us. It has been great!

Bisaz credits Instagram for being part of the reason she became passionate about photography a few years ago, which she explained to Rostigraben: "It [Instagram] motivated me to go outside and explore my own country by foot."

(2/5) On my #aSwissWelcome day with Chris Burkard, we weren't too lucky with the weather. But we did the best out of it. We hiked down to Seealpsee and waited for the right moment. The clouds opened up for half an hour which made us extremly happy. To my Swiss followers: you can now also apply to be a host and show your favourite spots in Switzerland to a guest. Check 'A Swiss Welcome' website for more. #SWISS #flySWISS

Another source of inspiration for her? The friends and feeds she follows on Instagram (us too).

(1/5) Back in october i had the chance to be a host for #aSwissWelcome. I spent an awesome day with @chrisburkard and showed him a bit of my country. We first went to the Restaurant Aescher-Wildkirchli. This was the path. Covered in fresh snow and fog. It was not the perfect condition, but that didn't stop us. For all my swiss friends, you can now apply to be a host yourself for A Awiss Welcome and show your favourite spots of Switzerland to a guest. You can apply on 'A Swiss Welcome' website. #SWISS #flySWISS

But what surprises us most is how different each snowy snapshot looks from one another. You'll often find Bisaz using very different perspectives of similar sights to help make each picture feel unique — like this one up a mountainside.

And she shoots during the day and night. Here, a full moon over a mountain range looks almost painted onto the sky.

Having a blast with @helvetic.collective over this weekend. Spending some time in a super cozy cabin in Prättigau/Graubünden. My snapchats tells you more ->kitkat_ch. @graubuenden @praettigau.ch #graubünden #prättigau #feelPrättigau

Since Bisaz travels over the weekend, her feed is filled with glimpses of different cities. Here's a lovely shot of Prättigau/Graubünden, where she spent time in a cozy, snow-covered cabin (naturally).

Great weekend with fun people and lots of skiing and eating cheese. @cransmontana #LiveCransMontana

And when a little bit of color does shine through in her mostly-white photos, they are truly memorable — like the pink sunlight on the peak of this mountain.
