During the course of this morning, on Mannlichen, Mrs IS and I wondered more than once why a Thursday in the first working week after the new year should produce the biggest crowds of the season to date. Okay, we had fresh snow and sunshine, but we haven’t seen so many skiers for a long time.
We progressed from queue to queue. Mrs IS called a halt mid-afternoon. I carried on to Scheidegg and played dodgems on Wixi as fellow skiers bounced off the large moguls. It will be quieter tomorrow probably as the forecast is nowhere near as good, but we are making an early start just in case.
A day of long waits and limited skiing time produced 6,383 vertical metres in 14 lift rides and 36 kilometres travelled.
