Working from the piste

Another sunny day hove into view this morning. I misjudged just how mild it would be and was very warm all day. Tomorrow, I will leave a layer of clothes at home and will be cold all day I am sure.

Working from home has been common for a few years now, at least in the U.K., but today it seems that working from the piste was the only thing to do in the Bernese Oberland. Offices across the Canton must have been largely empty. A busy morning meant crowded restaurant terraces at lunchtime. Things quietened down this afternoon, when the only queues were at the Eigernordwand lift.

           Hazy sunshine

As the day wore on, the clear blue sky of the morning gave way to a hazy sunshine. The day skiers arrive and leave via Grindelwald these days, using the still new V bahn lifts, so the run home was more or less deserted. In the village, on the nursery slope, there was some sort of dress rehearsal for tomorrow’s Pool Race. The race normally attracts grey skies, but unless the weather gods have a trick up their sleeves, there should be at least some sunshine this year.

A warm day, with some crowded moments, brought 10,170 vertical metres in 20 lift rides and 58 kilometres travelled.
