Thursday 20 November 19.00-20.30
Screening Room £11/£10

Now approaching its 150th anniversary, little is widely known about the early days of winter tourism in Switzerland. Although the first of the winter visitors to the Alps were convalescents, they were also joined by healthy friends and relatives who, for amusement and exercise, devised new activities sliding about on the snow and ice. Talking to Fashioning Winter: Moving Mountains curator Tory Turk, Susan Barton will reveal the quirky origins of winter tourism.
