It is very quiet in Wengen this week. On Mannlichen this morning, however, the sound of Polish voices could be heard again on otherwise deserted pistes. Two large groups, a ski club and a party with a travel company, made up most of the people on the hill. Austria is their usual ski destination, but not this year of course. Maybe they will come to like Wengen and return again next year. The village could do with the business.
It snowed overnight and has continued to do so all day. The boundaries between the pistes and the rest of the mountain are blurring under the weight of new snow.
Another winter’s day brought 6,819 vertical metres in 12 lift rides and 39 kilometres travelled.
