year round life in the alps...what's it like?

Jump to last reply

during a recent trip to germany (trip report coming) we visited the bavarian alps. i am trying to understand the practical aspects of year round life in the alps are like and to my surprise there is very little on this topic that i can find.

for example:

how do folks handle stocking for groceries and home supplies?

how is local transportation handled during winter months, i.e., are the roads maintained enough for locals to drive freely?

if one doesn't run a shop or similar, what does one do for one's livelihood?

generally speaking, i am trying to understand the nuts and bolts of how folks living in the alps carry out living there.

any transparency you can provide is appreciated. thank you.
