Some new snow

It did snow last night on the mountain, but in the village a freezing sleet made the paths treacherous this morning. A combination of new snow and sunshine added up to plenty of skiers on the mountain.  At Mannlichen the skiing was difficult.  The excess of skiers soon turned the new snow into moguls, leaving icy patches between.

I headed to Scheidegg and the snow at the top of the Gummi lift was better immediately.  It was never going to be an easy day though.  No sooner had I found some decent snow than the light faded.

The poor visibility did send most of the skiers home and all was peace and quiet on Wixi. By mid afternoon it was raining, but the light had improved. It was the best skiing of the day.

A mixed bag of snow and weather conditions brought 7,034 vertical metres in 17 lift rides and 36 kilometres travelled.
