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 :-)

The advertising bar on right hand side of screen is very annoying as is has cut off D G Orf's last post on my screen. Is it my screen setting?

Aahhh, if you look at the very top left side of the advert there is a little " minus" sign, click on that and it disappears! Sorted!

Snowed all day again, light this morning and a bit heavier this afternoon. Only 1 lift open at Mannlichen and 1 at Scheidegg. We decided this was probably a recipe for queues, so we went to Murren, which was deserted. Poor vizibility plus zero local knowledge meant that we ended up in a few unexpected places, but the snow was great.



Stopped at Sonnenberg for coffee. We were the only customers.


Back at home we have a problem developing. Every time Val clears the steps, the pile of snow by our front door gets a bit bigger. If it snows any more we won't be able to get out Shocked


It turned out that Scheidegg was very quiet - I suppose the prospect of spending the day going up & down Arven wasn't very appealing!

Temp -1C, more snow forecast tonight.

D G Orf, That's the problem - no way to get rid of it unless we carry it 1 shovelful at a time up the steps, all the way round the back of the apartments and over the road to the field!

I suppose I could carry it through the apartment and chuck it off the balcony Very Happy

Snowed all day up at Scheidegg, very heavy stuff too. Mixture of rain & snow in Wengen where the temp got up to +2C this afternoon.

Enormous amounts of snow at Scheidegg now:


The really good news is that the valley runs to Brandegg and Wengen both opened at lunchtime, as did the Lauberhorn chair, though the weather ensured that there weren't many takers for that one.

Better weather is forecast for tomorrow.

Temp +1C.

telford_mike, you should have colder weather Christmas day, similar weather tomorrow to what you are having today, Monday to Wednesday next week looks like bright warmer weather followed by a distinct change to colder weather for Thursday onwards until at least New Years day, long range forecast beyond then suggest possible further snow or maybe rain at lower levels

Lovely day. No trains to Scheidegg (avalanche) so everyone up to Mannlichen.



Nice snow - chopped-up powder on piste and still plenty of places to make new tracks elsewhere.

Temp: t-shirt weather!

Cold and fairly horrible day today. The snow eased off a bit around lunchtime but other than that it's been chucking it down for most of the day. Lifts at Mannlichen closed owing to high winds.

View to our humble lodgings.



Temp -3C, snowing.

And indeed it certainly did snow! Now given that the snowdance has been proved a valid method for controlling the weather around here, any chance of a 'sundance' for the next couple of days please? snowHead

D G Orf, Thanks for all the excellent reporting and hope you have a very Happy Christmas. Great to be back in Wengen and in view of the poor visibility today I am wondering what the record for trips to Brandegg stands at?!

skilegs, I don't know but I once managed 27 visits out of 30 days Embarassed I also once managed a (what I thought was) respectable 11.5 mins from the top of Wixi to Brandegg restaurant (at the cash desk) Cool

Lovely day today, properly cold and sunny - just how it should be.



Scheidegg in a shaft of sunshine.


Popped down to Brandegg for lunch (David's time was not under threat!). Snow fantastic everywhere, and all lifts open. It was quiet for Christmas Day, I think a lot of tourists have stayed away this season.

Merry Christmas!

beanie1, we'll be in the Sunstar bar after dinner Very Happy

What an awesome awesome day!!

Snow perfect, weather perfect, no queues. Perfect Christmas day.

Oh - and fresh tracks most of the day! Whoop! (With my local friends who know where to go though, as avalanche danger still quite high)

telford_mike, don't think I'll be out and about tonight, as am somewhat jet lagged!

Forecast is as follows, next couple of days should be warm and sunny as per today, Thursday there should be a significant cooling in the weather and I think snow showers rather than heavy snow, friday should bring a further 10cm of snow maybe a little more, Saturday is a 50/50 rain or snow day, might be either, if it falls as snow I'd anticipate perhaps 30cm or there abouts, depending on wind speed Sunday may be clear with further moderate rain/snow on Monday or it might arrive Sunday, after that it should cool down again, with possible further snow mid week

We are going to Wengen much later this year - end of March. (nunber 1 son's partner is a teacher!)
Is there any chance of decent snow as late as this?? Waiting optimistically.

Brian T, We go every year at the end of the season - it's the nicest time to go IMO. OK there might not be new snow every morning like we had over Christmas this year, but you get long days, quiet slopes and pleasant weather (mostly!). See you in March!

Posted my last entry in wrong title!
Just to say I won't be able to visit Good Old Wengen this year---too busy with work!! Bit of a b----- as the snow is certainly coming down looking at the cams. Like the new cam from top of Central sports !
I won't miss out completely this year as strapping the Stocklis on in Risoul in February.

Do I hear that there is a new Wixi replacement lift this year? I remember the first year the Wixi lift was built !!! God that was a while ago.

Always used to finish off skiing from the Lauberhorn around the shoulder to Wengerenalp before the wixi.

Give my regards to the slopes

Happy New Year to all

Regards
Holly.

Snowed all day with high winds, poor visibility and top lifts closed plus trains running very slowly. Possibility of rain tomorrow which would be tragic as the new snow is light and incredibly inviting. -4 in the village at 16.30 and still snowing.

High winds meant trains and no lifts open until 11:30am today. Opened Innerwengen, Arven and Tschuggen to start with, then Honegg, Wixi and Lauberhorn after lunch. Then mid-afternoon the trains were stopped again.

Wasn't the most pleasant skiing conditions, although the snow was lovely - run down to Innerwengen out of the wind was great.

The Wixi lift should have been replaced for this season, but due to a disagreement with an environmental group it won't happen until next year now.

Holly, are you talking about the first or second lift you remember being built? The old slam doors with the blankets over the legs?!

beanie1, I'm guessing first lift as she's been going to Wengen longer than I have and I remember the old ski lift with the covers over the legs, once had a ski pole get caught in one of the old Wixi chairs and had to ski rest of morning with only one pole, skied down after lunch and recovered pole at bottom of Wixi and got an extra run in Laughing

Mind you when my father started skiing there you had to walk over from Kleine Scheideg to Mannlichen as there were no lifts/cablecars there all off piste they were much fitter skiers in those days I think Shocked

Has anyone been to murren the last couple of days? Just wondered whether it's skiable down to Lauterbrunnen at the moment? Have been 7 times now and only been able to ski down one year! Would be lovely to do it when we are there next week so fingers crossed.
