Grey is the only colour

The skiing continues for the moment here in Wengen, thankfully, but today few people seemed to know about it.  My cable car this morning had seven other people on board and not many others turned up for the rest of the day. 

It wasn’t the best of weather, to be fair.  There had been a decent snowfall overnight, but this morning it was grey and pretty unwelcoming.  Even with so few skiers, the fresh snow soon achieved that slight roller coaster effect which, combined with poor light, makes for an interesting day. 

There was more snow forecast for the afternoon, but the wind at Scheidegg kept that at bay. We have the odd situation of good pistes and pockets of powder off piste in sheltered gullies, but windswept ridges and peaks. 


The forecast promises a big snowfall tonight. As usual, we will see. At the very least, the wind might drop a little.

A grey old day, with some good skiing to be had, brought 6,956 vertical metres in 16 lift rides and 38 kilometres travelled.
