Ready to race

Everything is ready for the Lauberhorn races, which begin tomorrow with a bonus event, a twice postponed Super G.  A sunny day is forecast and in the late morning, the Patrouille Suisse should blaze a trail across promised azure skies.

Will there be a crowd tomorrow?  It is still quiet in Wengen and this unexpected race may be poorly attended.  The Europa Cup races in past years have been watched by next to no one and Thursday may turn out to be the same. The television cameras will be there though and Wengen  should be looking its best.

This morning was cold yet again.  The sun shone and the skiing was excellent.  In fact, all pretty much the same as the last couple of days. I met Mrs IS at Scheidegg late in the morning.  There were few other people around and we enjoyed a sunny lunch stop before skiing on empty pistes in the afternoon.

Another wonderful day brought 10,187 vertical metres in 23 lift rides and 55 kilometres travelled.
