Gstaad - Switzerland

I wasn't counting on posting today but the postcrossing forum isn't working and i'm quite bored right now. My friend left yesterday to Switzerland, where she'll work for 3 months and when she came to Portugal to spend a month of holidays, she brought me these cards.

"Gstaad is a village located 1050 m above sea level, in the German-speaking section of the Canton of Berne in southwestern Switzerland. Gstaad, part of the municipality of Saanen, is known as one of the most exclusive and expensive ski resorts in the world, and has also been the location of Institut Le Rosey's winter campus since 1916.

Gstaad is known for its extremely luxurious hotels and shopping, high-society nightlife, fine dining, excellent service, and international stars. It is also one of the largest ski areas in the Alps. The town is located in the Bernese Oberland in the Swiss Alps.
The middle of the village has been a carfree zone since 1997. Along the Promenade, there are numerous highly-exclusive shops, restaurants and hotels." - in:

In this card you can see the hotel where my friend will be working at, is the one with white walls. So if you're planning a ski vacations in Gstaad, you may meet my friend ;)
