Some rain

It wasn’t anywhere near as bright this morning as yesterday. It had rained during the night and the sky was a dark grey at breakfast time. The cable car was quiet and the gondola from Grund more or less deserted. Still though it was a good morning’s skiing, with that slight glaze to the snow when it has rained but not too heavily. As a bonus the sky brightened for an hour or so.

As the day went on, the skies darkened again and the snow became heavy on the lower slopes. The day was poor in comparison to twenty four hours ago, but being on the mountain was still worth the effort. We may have more of the same weather tomorrow.

A day with good to soft conditions under ski brought 7,484 vertical metres in 16 lift rides and 44 kilometres travelled.
