Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

After yesterday’s glorious sunshine and great snow we thought we'd try again this morning. It wasn’t nearly as good, with flat light caused by the Sahara dust. No sunshine meant hard pistes with icy patches. Still better than staying at home though, even if the highlight of the morning was coffee at Männlichen.

Super day today, it's mild, sunny and the snow is just right.



It’s much quieter this week now that the kids have gone back to school.

Looks lovely there now the crowds have gone. Just wish we could get over there! I feel a few weeks coming on next year. Just have to persuade the O/H.

The Kandahar Ski Club has just posted on its Facebook page some old cine footage (probably from the early 1950s they say) that shows Sir Arnold Lunn in Mürren, including skiing for a few seconds (doing a Telemark turn!) then some footage of the old BLM train.

It snowed all night, and all day. I cleared about 15 inches of snow from our terrace this morning, and I'll soon need to do it again. 48 hours ago there was no snow at all here.

No queues anywhere.

It was crazy busy over the weekend - as well as the usual Swiss and French skiers it seems that half of Poland is here to escape their lockdown which begins today. Anyhow, today it was back to business as usual, with very quiet pistes and a complete absence of queues. The weather’s beautiful.

Another belter. It's warming up - some pistes quite soft this afternoon.



Still great skiing all the way back to the village.

Yes and no.

The right hand one beginning at the Silberhorn - never seen anything from up there - very difficult climb and nowhere for a heli to put down.

But yes, a few people have done the west flank of the Eiger (your left arrow) over the years, but it really is a very few.

Really hot today - about +16C in the village and +20 in the valley. It’s hard to believe it’s still March. The steamers are being spruced up for the summer season.



The service starts this coming Friday.

After planning approval has been granted in early summer 2021, the first preparatory work due to COVID cannot begin until spring 2022. The installation of three material ropeways from Stechelberg to Mürren and via Birg to the Schilthorn is planned. The entire delivery and removal of the materials to be disposed of should be carried out with these material ropeways. The first construction work in Mürren and on Birg is scheduled to begin in autumn 2022.

Does this mean that there will be a new Muerren Birg cableway and there will no longer be the wonderful "swing" as you go over the first pylon on the way up (or, indeed, the only pylon). A big disappointment as it was always entertaining looking at people's faces.... rolling eyes

Summer pass is available, CHF369 if you have a half price card or a season pass for the winter. Lasts until the end of November. Includes unlimited trips to the Jungfraujoch. We went there loads even on bad days last summer just for the chocolate shop. Bargain.

Männlichen is closing this weekend. It’s a pity, as it’s still perfect on-piste.



We're still waiting to see whether the Jungfraubahn will extend the season at Scheidegg by a week. Current scheduled closure is the 18th.

Here's a few seconds video that was posted by the DHO of a wolf being seen at the top of Männlichen above Wengen, apparently it occurred just over a week ago.

Winter continues in Wengen with the ski season on Kleine Scheidegg extended to 25th April what a shame so many people missed out on one of the best seasons we have had in a long while

The run back to the village is still open.

@telford_mike how many more days skiing have you got now and how much is left open? There still seems to be plenty of snow around further up. Are you continuing to live there for the foreseeable future?

@DixieDean, ski area remains open until 25th April, but with so few people around it'll just be a few lifts at Scheidegg. There's loads of snow - we skied back to the village yesterday with no problems at all. Yes, apart from a swift visit to the U.K. next month to see the kids, we're staying here for the foreseeable.

The conditions are sensational I have never skied anywhere at this time of the year with conditions that resemble mid January ,temperature are well below zero on the mountain, today Honeg was reopened and resort runs to Grindelwald and Wengen are open. We have 50km of pistes open with nobody here
