The village has been lively for the last couple of mornings. Yesterday, there were cows on the nursery slope (not skiing), with one making a break for freedom and last spotted, by me anyway, heading for the Wengen Curling Club hut. This morning, the starters for the Lauberhorn run were gathering by the tourist office. The course for this race is the World Cup downhill run in reverse, from Innerwengen to the top of Wixi. It must be hard work in the snow, probably harder for those in Easter bunny outfits.
On the hill it was a fantastic morning, with blue skies dotted with clouds and the almost perfect snow. As the day went on, the clouds built up. At Scheidegg in the afternoon it hailed for a while and then snowed for an hour. Towards the end of the day the sun returned on the tops. After a couple of poor days, we have had two great skiing days. MeteoSwiss promise some more sunshine tomorrow, for part of the day at least.
The day brought 9,062 vertical metres in 23 lift rides and 49 kilometres travelled.
