Not sunny

The forecast for today suggested more good weather, but this morning turned out to be overcast and fairly miserable. Sunny weather or snow are both great news; grey days offer much less.  

It had been cloudy last night as well, so the snow this morning was neither frozen nor slushy, just an odd intermediate state which was tricky to negotiate in the flat light. The Idle Skier headed for Tschuggen, where the trees offered sanctuary. Things picked up though and by mid afternoon there was some hazy sun and better snow conditions.

Tomorrow’s forecast promises more cloud, with a bit of sunshine. Of course, anything might happen. A mainly grey day brought 8,966 vertical metres in 21 lift rides and 50 kilometres travelled.
