Great skiing

Early on, it didn’t look promising.  The morning was grey again.  On the balcony, the weather gauge claimed the temperature to be over six degrees with the prospect of rain later.  The forecast on Meteo Swiss decided it would be colder. 

I erred on the side of caution, wearing some warm ski gear and for a change it turned out to be the right decision.  The sun showed up despite the early cloud, but there was a light, cold wind all day and whilst warm in the village, it was anything but that on the mountain.

The chilly day brought great skiing, some of the best of the season.  The clouds came and went and a few flakes of snow fell mid afternoon, but the sun persisted, allowing 11,503 vertical metres in 25 lift rides and 61 kilometres travelled.
