Perseverance rewarded

After a restless night, I reached the cable car later than usual.  It was quiet, as was the mountain.  It is Saturday, but only a few of the ski clubs were about. There was no comparison to be made with the crowds of Thursday. 

The weather played its part, I am sure. It was grey with low cloud, but also remarkably cold.  However, I made the most of the day and perseverance was rewarded.  By mid-afternoon, a pale sunshine lit the Wixi piste.  The last few runs of the day were as good as they get.

On the way home, I found the racecourse closed, save for the section by Bumps T bar, and the red pistes to Innerwengen open. This is a good thing. The red variant to Mary’s cafe is a far more interesting and varied ski than the finish to the downhill course.

A shortened day brought 6,924 vertical metres in 15 lift rides and 38 kilometres travelled.
