@Alastair Pink, indeed it was! And now we are off to inspect the Horner pub. No race doesn't mean no party - why not come up?

Winteregg was being prepared last night so I guess they can go at least as far as the restaurant.

Slalom tomorrow, British interest - Dave Ryding. There were 2 piste machines on Winteregg last night so it'll open before long. It's still snowing heavily so expect some temporary closures due to avalanche risk.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Yes, 45cm new snow on the course overnight, and still snowing heavily now. Great shame.

Supercombination today, and the organisers made a good call on the weather by switching the slalom to this morning and having the downhill this afternoon when the snow eased off a bit. Great atmosphere in the stadium. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wp-image-1229037071jpg.jpg Masses of new snow everywhere.

Blizzard here at the moment, lifts closing at the top. Little chance of a downhill this afternoon if this continues.

Murky day, poor visibility but very good pistes. Quite mild in the village +2C, but at Männlichen it was snowing a little and getting increasingly windy when we came down. Swiss Meteo have issued a storm warning for tonight. The format of the supercombination has been reversed for tomorrow - slalom will now be in the morning and downhill in the afternoon by which time the weather might have improved. Funny to see blokes in cat suits doing their shopping at the Co-op just now. Off to see the draw for bib numbers in a bit, then there'll be a massive party. The main stage is only about 30 metres from our house so it's going to be a noisy evening!
Then you'll get to see more forums.

@Bodeswell, train every time if the weather's dodgy. £110 per adult return, 1 child free per adult. http://www.swisspasses.com/transfer Edit: might be a bit late to order those now... you can buy / print normal tickets online at www.rail.ch

Lovely conditions today with the new snow. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wp-image-1001419110jpg.jpg Weirdly, there were hardly any takers for the sport on offer. Looking up Honegg: http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wp-image-527849669jpg.jpg 'Queue' at Lauberhorn chair, the most popular lift in the area: http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wp-image-288020470jpg.jpg Racers doing their training runs ready for the weekend: http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wp-image-476355555jpg.jpg That was certainly the best day of the season so far. It clouded over after lunch and we'll get a little more snow tonight. Forecast for the weekend looks great if you're a holidaymaker, but bleak if you're a racer. Fingers crossed the races can go ahead.

Just avoid the Z12's. Out of interest, why? I have them on my Atomic Vantage 90's and they seem fine. Should I be worried?

Hi Mike, get onto booking.com and try some searches - there is availability in Wengen for sure that week, and probably Mürren too. Caprice in Wengen definitely has rooms. Edit: also checked Bellevue, Silberhorn and Victoria Lauberhorn. All have availability for your dates. If you hire a car you'll need to park it somewhere, as neither Wengen nor Mürren have roads leading to them. There's a multi-story carpark in Lauterbrunnen that you can pre-book. If you'd rather come by train it will cost £220 return for the family.
You know it makes sense.

I hope this is the right thread to ask questions regarding Wengen. I have friends staying in Alpenhof Stechelberg. We are looking at staying nearby in Wengen to be near the lifts. Am I on the right track? I do not know the ski area very well. Crumbs, you are only 3 minutes away from stechelberg Schilthorn cable car station taking you up to Mürren via Gimmelwald within 10 minutes. Then 2 minute walk onto the fast schilgtrat chairlift!! This is true. I should have prefixed my reply with "with current snow conditions" as there's obviously limited skiing in Mürren at the moment. However we don't know when the OP is planning to travel, and hopefully things will improve before long.
Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

Am I on the right track? I do not know the ski area very well. Hi Mike, yes you want to stay in Wengen for easy access to the skiing. You can get to Stechelberg by going down to Lauterbrunnen on the train then catching the bus to Stechelberg. The train and bus connect nicely so it's an easy trip.

Bluebird day today. Pistes really good - hard, fast and grippy. Bumps lift is now open, and you can ski all the way down to Grund from Männlichen. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wp-image-1368131202jpg.jpg Amazing views of the nebelmeer. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wp-image-707296089jpg.jpg The mountain is really quiet - just a few dozen skiers on Männlichen this afternoon.

Gloomy today but thankfully less cold. Every chairlift in the Mannlichen / Scheidegg sector was open today, so for the first time this season we skied across to Scheidegg from Mannlichen. Tschuggen drag is still closed so you can't do it in the opposite direction. The snow off the top of Gummi is really nice, as it hasn't been skied on until today. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wpid-wp-image-469694240jpg.jpg It should be a lot quieter next week as the last of the kids go back to school on Monday.

Is the Swiss transfer ticket still the cheapest way to get from Geneva airport to Interlaken? Transfer ticket £110 http://www.swisspasses.com/railpass/transfer/ Train ticket Chf150 http://www.sbb.ch So yes, transfer ticket is cheaper.

Bonkers cold this morning, minus 13 on our balcony and heaven knows how much lower up top. But the sun is out, and the snow is good. TV towers along the downhill course ready for next weekend. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wpid-wp-image-449930809jpg.jpg

@Bodeswell, You can ski to Wengernalp with just your pass, but to get anywhere with a view of the course you'll need a ticket or you'll be politely moved on. Another good place to watch is alongside the course just down from the top of the Lauberhorn. We'll be at the bottom of the course at Innerwengen drinking gluwein and munching burgers from the BBQ :D

Much colder today, started snowing at about 3pm. The home run back to Wengen opened for the first time today. Competitors have started arriving for the Europa Cup races this weekend. Huge building project underway for the Weltcup Dorfli on the ice rink. It gets bigger every year. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wpid-wp-image-1043023550jpg.jpg

Wengen website showing 'light snow' for Monday- Tuesday. Resort websites are always on the conservative side in my experience- I'm hoping very much so Tune into the Jungfrau Region thread in Snow Reports, I post most days.

Popped across the valley today and got this pic of Wengen's ski area from the path between Grütchalp and Winteregg. Amazing to think that the Lauberhorn races are still on! http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wpid-wp-image-65995159jpg.jpg Weather still spring-like, though our weather station (and the local forecast) says there'll soon be a change to something more seasonal.

Another sunny day, but it's much colder - currently zero, so there should be some snowmaking tonight. People are being encouraged to ski the race course to consolidate the artificial snow. Fiendishly icy in the shade at the bottom of the course. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/wpid-wp-image-659877292jpg.jpg

I've been wearing soft contact lenses since I was in my twenties (I'm the same age as you). Never had any problems with skiing at all. Obviously you'll take plenty of spares. I actually think a bit of cold wind in the eyes actually helps, as the eyes water a little which keeps the lenses moist. I wear sunglasses rather than goggles.

More skiing has opened-up this weekend. You can ski down to Innerwengen on the race course and to Allmend on the wood path. Restaurant at Allmend doing a roaring trade therefore. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/wpid-wp-image-1504565548jpg.jpg Not sure whether the village run will open anytime soon. There's lots of artificial snow on the path down past Cafe Oberland, but the Allmend meadow and the Brunner slopes get a lot of sun and are pretty bare. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/wpid-wp-image-760520665jpg.jpg Temp in the village at lunchtime, +10 degrees C, and we're not getting below zero overnight. Lots of people arriving today.
