The sun was showing its face this morning early on and the day looked promising. I was away early therefore, but was slowed immediately by assorted queues.
First, I queued at the ski room to put my boots on (13 people allowed at one time in the depot). Then I joined a different queue to collect my new skis (fifteen people allowed in the rental and sale area) Then, I joined a further queue in order to pay for my new skis (two people allowed in the main shop till area). Finally, I queued to get on the cable car (fifty people allowed in the cable car building).
I didn’t have to queue at all after that. More or less every lift and piste is open at the moment and the mountain absorbed the holiday makers without difficulty.
It was a good day. The power of new skis brought 10,009 vertical metres in 22 lift rides and 52 kilometres travelled.
