It seems almost impossible that only a couple of days ago the temperature belonged more to July than January. Today, it has been very cold.
This morning, we were away early and on Mannlichen by 9.15am. The forecast had been poor, but when we left the cable car, the sun was working its way around the mountains to fill a clear blue sky. Most skiers had taken heed of the expected poor weather and the hill was quiet.
By mid-day, the sun had disappeared and the day’s forecast was fulfilled. The skies brightened occasionally in the afternoon, but late on a few snowflakes were falling. The snow looks set to continue tomorrow.
A good day’s skiing brought 10,506 vertical metres in 22 lift rides and 56 kilometres travelled.
