Best of days

The temperature dropped last night and it snowed heavily to the Lauterbrunnen valley floor.

It was bright this morning however and the day looked promising. It turned out to be the best of days, cold with blue skies and nigh on perfect snow. The cable car shortly after 9.30am was full again, but as with the last few mornings, the skiers were soon lost on Mannlichen. The gondola from Grindelwald was quiet.

It has not been the best of winters for snow by a long stretch, but today would be hard to beat during many ski seasons. Mannlichen closes on Easter Monday, but the Scheidegg season has been extended to 30 April and the skiing may well hold out well until then.

A great day on the mountain brought 11,433 vertical metres in 23 lift rides and 61 kilometres travelled.
