Short day

If anything, today was more beautiful than yesterday, with still better and much quieter skiing.  I was on the 9.00am cable car, which was not full. A tour around the Mannlichen-Scheidegg circuit failed to reveal many further skiers. The season has several weeks to run, but will anyone still be skiing at the end?  It is beginning to look doubtful.

It was a short ski day, but exceptional, with the downhill and slalom courses at their best. The day brought 5,100 vertical metres in 12 lift rides and 30 kilometres travelled.

For the first time in a long time, the Idle Skiers have left the village.
