Jungfrau Ski region pt. 2

The April edition of Fall-Line magazine has an interesting article on Mürren. However I noticed one mistake - it said that the black piste from the top of the Schilthorn was 75°! Shocked Of course they should have said it's 75% (where 100% equates to 45°). Doing the maths the actual slope angle is arctan(0.75) = 36.9°, still quite steep but not as terrifying as the article implies. Laughing

I found it pretty terrifying Laughing

I was actually talking to a maths teacher when i was there. He told me it was 36.9 degrees. And pointed out that the steepest road in the UK is 33%, so the Schilthorn is quite steep.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

The Hundschopf on the lauberhorn course is 41° but is only a short section, the final schuss is 36° it always looks steeper from the top looking down opposed to the bottom looking up snowHead

Still very good snow on Salzegg this morning if you're thinking of coming for Easter weekend.

New snowmaking between Gummi and Tschuggen to be installed. This is great news as it will ensure the connection between Männlichen and Scheidegg opens earlier in the season.

It will let you go from Mannlichen to Kl Scheidegg but possibly not the other way, typically at the start of the season high winds often strop off any snow on the slopes above the Arven and in particular Honegg lifts, you can still use the road to go through the woods to the Tschuggen lift but it often requires a bit of walking

That sounds a pretty good deal for anyone who is out there for more than say 2 weeks in the season. Cool
