Orderly queue

It continued to snow overnight and most of today. The current weather is stretching credulity for March, with three days of almost continuous, heavy snow.

This morning early on, the uphill transport was closed due to avalanche risk. However, the Mannlichen cable car was posted as opening at 10.00am. An orderly queue formed outside the doors. In the end, the first car pulled out the station half an hour later than advertised and took fifty people to a mountain of fresh snow. The sun appeared again for a while, as it has done in the last few days, periodically but briefly.

Inevitability, the cloud and snow returned. This afternoon on Wixi, visibility was again measurable in inches. Another day for the winter record books brought 6,493 vertical metres in 15 lift rides and 40 kilometres travelled.
