Saturday in the sun

The sun came out this morning. It was welcome. It’s impossible not to be pleased when it snows in a ski resort, but the ankle height cloud of the last few days was beginning to grate a little.

Today, with fantastic snow, sun on the hill and cloud below us, it might have been a bumper Saturday. However, these remain abnormal times and many of the usual weekend suspects, the local ski clubs in particular, were missing.

Skiline has been having a difficult few days; probably clogged with snow. It has missed more than one lift ride and, today, omitted the Mannlichen cable car of all things. I therefore seem to have started my ski day, as if by magic, in the middle of the mountain.

A sunny day brought 8,871 vertical metres in 20 lift rides and 43 kilometres travelled. It is forecast to snow again tomorrow.
