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 :-)

New Männlichen cable car. All very posh with a spiral staircase up onto the rooftop balcony.



It's an extra CHF5 to go on the balcony, and you can only do this in summer. It was cold up there today and these passengers must have been pretty chilly by the time they reached the top.

There’s still an awful lot of snow along the path from Männlichen to Scheidegg. Apparently they had to use a digger before it could open.

I don’t think the communication company driver heading towards #Mürren last week for the Inferno Triathlon got the memo about it being car-free and got stuck on a footpath. In the end the van had to be airlifted out - thanks #murrenlover

Absolute ban on drones within 5km of any airfield. As we have the heliport in Lauterbrunnen the ban therefore covers all of Wengen and Mürren.

Swiss Federal Aviation Office (BAZL) created a map in 2016 showing the no-fly zones (for recreation purpose only, licensed pilots need to submit a flight plan Wink ) but sadly no one pays attention to it. I see many videos of flying over the area (not licensed at all) !!

I know Philipp Gertsch of Wengen Central Sports is a keen drone flyer ( I've seen several of his excellent videos taken flying over Wengen) , I wonder whether he is licensed and submits a flight plan? I don't feel like asking him though.... Laughing

Plans have been announced for a CHF90 Million project to upgrade the cable car links from Stechelberg up to Schilthorn at the latest by 2025. The changes will mean being able to go from Stechelberg up to the Schilthorn Piz Gloria in only 20 mins, with only having to change at Mürren and Birg (there'll be a new cable car going direct from Stechelberg to Mürren cutting out the change at Gimmelwald). More info (in German) here: https://www.jungfrauzeitung.ch/artikel/167724/

When the news broke about the 90 million spend i thought it was on the new lifts planned for Mürren (which has been spoken about in great lengths behind the scenes i have been told) but that isn't the case. I feel the budget has been spent on this instead of that Sad

New lift on the nursery slope at Männlichen replacing the awful tow that's been there for years. It's an overhead lift and it goes almost all the way to the bottom of the slope, which should mean we can get directly back up to Männlichen from the top of Lager without having to hike.

Top of the new nursery slope tow at Männlichen this morning.



Engineering on a grand scale - the new gondola is being assembled. Once all the bits have been put together the top station will be built around the lift.

No need to go to another forum! Shocked I created a thread about it here on sHs: http://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?t=139250&highlight= wink

That's a coincidence, so did I, just goes to show that the DHO keeps its members well informed! Toofy Grin I believe some other ski resort near to Wengen also has a weird club called the Kandahar?....... NehNeh
