Moguls

Like many things, moguls are not what they once were. In the days when piste bashing was less sophisticated, moguls ruled the piste for much of the time. They still turn up on heavily skied runs and sometimes they are left to do their worst.

There is a significant bumps field below Birg in Murren. It is a major challenge. Below the Lager chair in Wengen, an unpisted run, large moguls grow over the winter. The moguls now seem as hard as concrete and so well set they might be there still next season.

On the way home, it was clear that the Bumps T bar has closed until next winter. It hasn’t been running since Sunday, but today the T bars had gone from the cable.

The day has been warm, warranting a mere three layers of clothing. The weather apps continue to show sunshine for days to come. The app which shows the onset of rain towards the end of next week will be ignored.

A warm, sunny day brought 8,872 vertical metres in 18 lift rides and 54 kilometres travelled.
