Be warned. Last year we did our first proper season. Just coming to the end of our second and have now secured a home here. Even a season isn't enough!

Still very good snow on Salzegg this morning if you're thinking of coming for Easter weekend. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/img_1461.jpg

I think Val d'Isere is pretty bad for it, I'm ill every single year, usually a few days in. This year I was struck down on the way home, it was a very miserable journey indeed and a sorry few days afterwards. I always take hand gel with me because some of the bars don't have soap (the Rosee Blanche loo NEVER has any) and wash my hands a lot but it always gets me. I have to ask - why on earth do you keep going back?

Männlichen now closed for the season, but still good skiing at Scheidegg. Village very quiet. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/wp-image-673436891jpg.jpg

A friend had his bindings checked here yesterday. It cost CHF20, and he came out of the shop with a little round sticker on his skis saying '2017'. All good. The conversation then turned to the means of calculating the DIN values that had been tested. This of course depends entirely on info provided by the owner regarding weight, skiing ability, boot sole length & age. It strikes me that in addition to checking that a binding will release according to the values determined by the DIN standard, shops would provide better value by trying to validate the base info used to calculate the DIN values. Having a set of scales would certainly help, but things like 'skier type' (1,2 or 3 etc) are so subjective as to render the whole exercise pretty haphazard. The insurance thing has to be bunkum by the way.

Vertical Up race today in Wengen. The challenge is to get from the bottom of the downhill course to the top. You can use anything you like as long as it isn't motorised, but most people seem to use running shoes with crampons. Shortened course today owing to a big föhn storm on the Lauberhorn. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/wp-image-358008787jpg.jpg

I never used to wear goggles - hated the damn things - always fogging up. Finally gave in and bought some POC Iris Stripes last autumn. What a revelation. No fogging at all, comfortable and have survived he rigours of a season. Recommended.

@Ashridge I've skied all season on mine, even went so far as giving my Atomic Race LTs away as I never used them even on days when the snow was hard packed. For info I am a few kilos heavier than you and the 176s are fine for me.

Are these this years CTI version? I am thinking of these or the 100mm (wider) version - I skiied on the 90s in December and really liked them. Am torn between going also for the 176cm length or 180cm - currently ski on Salomon X-Drive 80 Ti - 177cm length, 80mm waist, but the Atomics have more rocker, so less effective length/edge on the slope ... Any one any knowledge and able to compare the 90 and 100? I don't want to lose too much, if any ideally, of the on-piste carving ability of the Salomons. Yes, CTI version. I'd avoid the 100s if you value on-piste performance to be honest. The big pull of the 90 is that it's an all-rounder. You really need to try them out to determine the best length for you. Personally I like short skis so I bought the 176 and they're fine. They do ski pretty short though, so maybe go for the 184?

After our wet weekend we're back to normal service here with lovely weather, good pistes and very few people about. Temps are high but the pistes didn't get choppy today as hardly anyone was skiing. http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/wp-image-1176552342jpg.jpg

@tripowski, it's been raining today (and still is) so the lower runs may be a bit marginal tomorrow. My suggestion would be to get a half-day pass. Get the cable-car to Männlichen (5 minute trip) and ski the pistes up there until the lifts close. If the weather/snow is nice you can ski down to Grund (you may have to get a bus down the last bit from Aspen, but probably not). Back to Wengen via Scheidegg and you're done. Last train down from Scheidegg is 18.33. You could ski it of course, but you'll be way past last piste patrol time so go steady and look out for piste machines.

@telford_mike, good to meet you a few days ago and hope you enjoy the rest of the season. I gather from various sources that the V bahn up from Grindelwald to Männlichen And Eigergletscher is unlikely to be built in time for next season due to a number of ongoing controversies? Hi Pete! Latest news a couple of weeks ago was that the Jungfraubahn hope to have the building permits by early summer. This being the case they might just have time to get the gondola from Grund to Männlichen completed by next season. The new gondola to Eigergletscher would follow the year after. The existing gondola from Grund to Männlichen has to be decommissioned in 2018 regardless, so they need to get a move on or Männlichen's going to be mighty quiet next winter.

Agree with all of the above, and would add that Arven red at Scheidegg (surprisingly perhaps) is one of the easiest runs in the area for finding your feet. Restaurants are much of a muchness as @Bodeswell, has said. If skiing Männlichen to Scheidegg you can avoid 95% of Hönegg by bearing left down Rohr a couple of hundred yards after getting off the Gummi chair (nicest route anyway imho). Hope you have a good holiday, looks like we should get some snow at altitude on Saturday & Sunday. Food at the Sunstar has been particularly good this season.

@ozibird, The new Golden India in Wengen is in the Cafe Greubi building (you can find it on Google Maps), walk up the little hill from the Bernerhof to Chäs Greubi shop and turn left at the top. Shanthi is in the Co-op complex just up from Interlaken West station.

As above, a nice lunch with a drink up the mountain will cost CHF50 for 2. Large beer when you get back down CHF6. Or go to the Co-op, buy a loaf and some cheese and make your own sandwiches for peanuts. Cuckoo clock souvenir CHF800 or so.

That's 3 weeks away yet so lots could change, but 11th March is when the tour operators' bookings start falling away (according to the reps) so you (a) might bag a bargain and (b) it shouldn't be too busy. I'd hang fire for a bit and see what happens. Good time for a holiday, wherever you end up.
