Trauffer was skiing in the city of Zurich.

The lack of snow is a problem for hit singer Trauffer (43). “I miss the snowy walks on the Ballenberg or along Lake Brienz,” says the Bernese Oberlander. “There is nothing nicer than when fields and meadows are covered with a thick layer of fresh snow.”
He feels sorry for the children in particular that it’s so warm this year, he says. “Tobogganing and having snowball fights in winter are some of my fondest childhood memories.”
Amusing and captivating
Nevertheless, the Alpentainer doesn’t want to be too miserable. Instead of being on the slopes, he is currently spending a lot of time in the rehearsal room practicing the songs for the upcoming “Glöggelä” tour with his band. And this Friday he’s releasing the song “Gondeli”, which becomes an amusing and rousing après-ski hit even without snow.
Trauffer shot the accompanying video in Zurich in December, the last time winter really hit. “It was snowing like crazy that day, and everyone was enjoying the sudden splendor of winter,” he recalls. “We drew everyone’s attention when we were out and about with our skis on the snow-covered Langstrasse, in the main station and on the trams.”
Trauffer hopes that the new song will finally bring back that fun winter feeling that many miss so much. “And we’ll still have a lot of fun in this half-batchy winter.”
