Skiing Today

Our "advanced" group today had our sights set on honourable participation in the Downhill Only (DHO) club's Polytechnic Cup, an adrenaline-soaked giant slalom run down the famous Lauberhorn Downhill piste. A sub-team warmed up with a couple of runs down Barhaarg, enjoying no less than 11 consecutive queue-free lifts before heading over to Wixi and race registration and course inspection. There we met up with two members of yesterday's 10k-vertical-barrier-breaking team and together we took our rightful places as the last to go. Race results were not yet available at the time of writing (wonder why?) but all team members completed the course with creditable times (we're sure!) With two slalom runs completed it was time for fortification, which took the form of rosti at Grindelwaldblick in the delightful company of Monday's "Further and Faster" team. For our afternoon fun we returned to the Mannlichen area, swelling our numbers with family members who had also competed in the cup. The day ended with another (successful) attempt on the "Lauberhorn Challenge" and apres at Mary's.

Snow overview for Switzerland

20 February 2019

The weather over every major Swiss ski area is uniformly dominated by clear skies and warm days – just as the rest of the Alps are. Thankfully, despite these spring like conditions, many resorts continued to offer excellent skiing, at least on piste on Tuesday 19th February. The upper slopes in the Jungfrau, Davos, and Saas Fee were all reported to be in excellent shape, becoming more typically spring like as you descend the mountain.

A combination of this consistent sun and lack of recent snowfall has limited available off piste to those prepared to make more substantial journeys to find it. There will be little opportunity to find untouched snow unless you put on skins and head for north facing runs away from resort boundaries. For the most part however, there is plenty to enjoy across the fantastic groomed terrain. It would be worth getting used to these conditions as there is no new snow currently on the horizon for Switzerland. One saving grace however is that many resorts in Switzerland are at least enjoying somewhat cooler days than elsewhere, preserving that snow which is already on the ground.
