It was a dark and dreary morning when the Idle Skiers woke. It seemed that the weather was set for the day, but as always, things changed quickly.
The Idle Skier arrived at the top of the Mannlichen cable car in the continuing gloom, but the sun showed up almost immediately and brightened the rest of the morning. The day then reverted to type and by early afternoon, the cloud was at piste height and it was damp and cold on the mountain. Later on, a very light dusting of snow fell at Scheidegg.
A day which brought several seasons of weather rolled into a few hours brought 7,100 vertical metres in 17 lift rides and 43 kilometres travelled.
