A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet. What would you call it on the 25th?

Aye, What a special day! For nowt might make us happy as company and shelter. What then, to ski on a day which is a belter, fresh fallen snow and naebody there, I canae believe it, no time to stare. What would you call it? Fresh, magnificently groomed piste. Its grooves were clear to the eye […]

Missing you! It is really wintery, cold snowy but too quiet!

Quietest Week of the season We’re missing everyone. It always is. That is, the quietest week of the winter, the one after the Lauberhorn Downhill. Now, nobody in Switzerland has any holidays left.

First trips and First podium finishes

First queues Another roller coaster of a week. A successful  trip to ski at First. It was cold, the snow was good and the company excellent. In groups of not more than 5 (there are restrictions and guidance here too) we whipped down the mountain. Got the 121 bus at the new terminal and headed […]

 Life, but not as we know it! An understatement. Life does roll on. I can droll on. However, here I shall attempt to only droll on about skiing and Wengen. To follow, sadly will include some of the negative bits about life just now. A touch unavoidable. Apart from to say that our thoughts, my […]

More guidelines and 1st snow, fond yet stand offish greetings, Wengen!

More Guidelines and 1st Snow I’ve arrived safely in Wengen. Kathleen was great company on what was thank fully an uneventful journey. I was prepared for all sorts of guidelines. However, we drifted south until we reached a snowy Lauterbrunnen. This 1st snow for me was the result of the 1st snow fall of the […]
