Snow machines

It was glorious weather today, with another painted blue sky, sun all day and slightly cold conditions to keep the snow in good order. On Saturday, everyone I encountered said it would be quiet the following day. On Sunday, people said the same about Monday. Today it was true, with the mountain more or less deserted for much of the day.

The collection of short stories by Isaac Asimov published as I, Robot, later made into a pretty good film, explores the thinking of robots. Amongst other things, they gather together for security. Here in Wengen our robots, the snow machines, are gathering together before their departure for summer hibernation. The snow making season is over and we are reliant on nature until the end of the season.

Another great day for skiing brought 11,216 vertical metres in 24 lift rides and 60 kilometres travelled.
