  There are many things that are much cooler when done mid-air. Tiny shots of spirits, or s*x (not guilty), for instance.

If Val d’Isere is the naughty older brother who’s just left home and is creating a fuss, Engelberg is the little cousin who has just gone through puberty and who you never really hear about.
