Some snowfall

This morning, the Idle Skiers called into the virus testing centre and received the all clear.  I headed for the cable car straight afterwards, and was pretty much alone. Three of us made the trip to Mannlichen. Not many more seemed to join us on the hill.

Overnight and all today, it has snowed heavily.  The visibility was measurable in inches. The snow conditions were fantastic however.  From the bottom of the Mannlichen chair to the mid station at Holenstein was the best skiing of the season.  Higher up, the snow was equally good, but the going was grim.

I almost always ski home. The run to Innerwengen is at the top of my favourites list. Early on though the Gummi lift linking Mannlichen to Scheidegg was closed and in the afternoon, when open, it was lost in cloud and snow. I took the cable car back to Wengen and, apart from the driver, was on my own.

A tricky day on the hill brought 3,480 vertical metres in nine lift rides on and 24 kilometres travelled. Tomorrow, there is more snow forecast.
