Last spring a bear sat in the middle of a trail at Whistler, people were skiing round it and it didn't seem remotely bothered! We get them all the time round our way, not really too much to worry about as long as you don't sneak up on them and/or they don't have cubs with them. Very, very rare in Western Europe, but they seem to be making a bit of a comeback lately.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Sounds great. Must pop over and give Engelberg a go sometime next season.

Old cable cars were removed by a huge helicopter this morning, and the new ones were delivered. https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/20180418_1044342119464811.jpg https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/20180418_1046591410202575.jpg

Wengen is pretty quiet now - this was about 10 this morning. https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/20180413_143200368567477.jpg Skiing is still good though, particularly the couple of hours before lunch. Brandegg run is still fine all the way, and the main drag back to Wengen is still open, if a little discoloured in places. Last day of the season will be Sunday, which seems a shame. There's still 150cm of snow at Scheidegg. https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/20180413_1434171341211916.jpg

A glorious morning with typical spring skiing. Bone hard early on, perfect from about 10am, skied back to Wengen at around 1.30 when things got too slushy. Coverage is still fine down to Wengen & Brandegg. Temperature in the village this afternoon.... +19C !! 8) https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/20180406_1402451524036919.jpg

Thanks. Need something like Black Crows Junius in 130 or Fischer Prodigy in 135. But I forgot it’s Easter! Most closed til Tuesday anyhow. Might as well get them online from Ekosport.fr Be careful, you'll get hammered for customs charges if you have a Swiss address. It's not too bad. I bought skis from Ekosport in February. Skis were CHF415 inc delivery. I think the 'tax' I had to pay at the post office was CHF36.
You know it makes sense.

Last day for Männlichen yesterday. They wasted no time in dismantling the old cable car. https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/20180403_143103580020059.jpg It will be replaced by this. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/BB85F344-AEEE-4B7C-AE9D-B06AAE982927-1024x732.jpeg Very warm today and abundant, if sticky, snow.

Expected crowds on bank holiday Monday. Didn’t happen - nice skiing on quiet pistes. It’s quite warm so the snow is soft and a bit heavy down towards the village, but there’s so much of it it’s not an issue. I had Fallboden to myself this morning. https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/20180402_150436618398377.jpg Some hotels are closing. The Sunstar was the first, their last guests left this morning.

we were treated to an aerial bombardment by the Swiss lufte waffe ( bombing from air glaciers heli ) Heard all those bangs earlier - noisy lot over in Mürren! Not too busy at Scheidegg, all the piste machines were hard at work though. https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/20180401_154203639549160.jpg

At the beginning of January Wengen is definitely the better bet. Down in the valley at that time of year the days will be dark and short. No spas in Lauterbrunnen but a selection in Wengen, not to mention a much better choice of bars and restaurants. Shopping is good in Interlaken - just under an hour by train. Trains run up to Kleine Scheidegg every half-hour, with the possibility to continue down to Grindelwald for shopping/lunch. Lots of winter walking in and around the village. There's a hiking pass for non-skiers which costs a bit less than a ski pass - it covers all the transport in the area.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Not unbearably, but it will be busy. Why on earth will the non-skier want to be in Lauterbrunnen?

It’s been a bit gloomy the last couple of days, I have been doing jobs around the house while Val has been teaching now that the school holidays are here again. Anyhow good news for next season, the CHF666 ski passes will be on sale again from September until the middle of December. https://top4.ski Summer passes will go on sale shortly - CHF380 if you have a 2017/18 top4 pass or a half fare card, CHF560 if you don't. https://www.jungfrau.ch/shop/en/abonnemente For anyone in the area, Uptown Lights will be playing at Rocks bar in Wengen on Thursday evening - highly recommended.

But presumably if you stay in Wengen itself you've got to pay to park the car in Lauterbrunnen and transfer everything up to your accommodation on the train? As idyllic as Wengen would appear, that does sound like a hassle. It's not a hassle. For every winter guest who stays in Lauterbrunnen, probably 20 times more choose Wengen (most of the hotels in Lauterbrunnen close over the winter) - it's well worth 15 minutes on the train with all your stuff to stay up in the village, and there's so much more to do in the evenings whereas Lauterbrunnen is dead as a door nail.

Very busy in Wengen today so we went over to Mürren. FIS World Cup telemark races were on which means lots of athletes, coaches and officials around, but hardly any of them skiing. Super day. View to the Jungfrau from Sonnenberg. https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/20180324_1514451254150962.jpg

Early March is usually best, but as usual the weather is king. This season you could have come anytime between the first weekend of December and Easter and it would have been fab. February half term isn’t too busy, so in your circumstances I'd recommend it.

@Rogerdodger, shame, Stepfi is great. Epic morning, clouded over after coffee. Snow really good all the way back to Wengen. https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/20180322_12561464001891.jpg

After a few gloomy days we finally got some sun today. It snowed overnight too, so conditions were pretty epic. Very few people about - no queue at all for the Männlichen cable car at 9am. https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/20180314_132431638312527.jpg Warm this afternoon - about +9C in the village.

@Rogerdodger, I'm a weissbier man, but I'll give it a go next time! Good day out over at First today. The cliff walk looks terrifying. https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/20180305_173533473510789.jpg The skiing was great though, pistes softening in the sun.
