We were both on the hill promptly this morning and had a pretty full day each. Still though we were pleased to see this evening that Ski Sunday has returned to the television screens. It has been around since the late 1970s and we have seen our fair share of programmes. Maybe it is not quite as good as it was in the early days, with seemingly more talk and less racing, but today’s featured event, the men’s downhill at Bormio, turned out to be a cracking race.
In Wengen, the early sunshine disappeared by shortly after mid-day. Over at Murren, it was still bright into the afternoon. It was warm, or so Mrs IS says, but it would need to be Caribbean weather for me to notice.
A mainly grey day brought 7,393 vertical metres in 16 lift rides and 38 kilometres travelled.
