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 :-)

Jungfrau Ski region pt. 2

Well I've had the refund from the Jungfraubahn people for the two 6 day skipasses which I'd bought online for my friends who were due to join me on a later trip, in fact they even included the CHF5 postage in the refund which I wasn't expecting. When I paid for the total CHF591 back in the middle of January my credit card charged me £470.75 at the then exchange rate, however since then with the £ falling considerably against the CHF the repayment into my credit card now equates to £518.67, so I'm £47.92 better off! Madeye-Smiley

I've also contacted SBB and they are refunding me the Saver Day pass tickets I'd bought back in February for the same upcoming trip, so once again with the falling £ since then I should be quids in. Smile

I seem to be doing quite well from this unplanned currency trading! Toofy Grin

A cold day, but sunny. Time for a hike up to the Leiterhorn.



So quiet here you can't believe it, but still lovely up in the hills above the village.

@telford_mike, Lovely. As I've said before if you (like virtually everyone in Europe now) has to be in self isolation I can think of fewer scenic places to be than the Jungfrau region. Smile

No, not here. We're restricted to groups of 5 or less and must exercise social distancing. Only food shops and pharmacies open - no bars etc. Almost unbelievably, tourists have been arriving for Easter, which is beginning to irk some of the locals.

I saw someone complain on social media a few days ago that they were unable to get a refund from the Hotel Belvedere in Wengen as "they were saying they were still open" . I don't know if that's true, but if they are it's a bit harsh on the person who booked since they are obviously unable to travel against FCO advice.

All the hotels are closed. The only one doing any sort of business is the Bernerhof, who are doing takeaway pizza and pasta from Thursday to Saturday. Weather still glorious, lots of tadpoles in the pools at Stechelberg.

I've just seen this bit of news on the Kandahar ski club facebook page:

Renewal of the Grütschalp - Mürren adhesion railway.
In order to meet the requirements of the Disability Act, the old trains will be replaced with low modern ones by 2023. The stations and workshop will be modernised with the large scale renovation of the train line.

Good news but one hopes they will keep some old rolling stock as, at least, museum pieces as they are a real part of the history and atmosphere as much as the old and very posh jungraujoch carriages which come out once in a while.

Easter holidays all done - it’s the ‘official' end of the ski season, so building and renovations can begin. This huge remote controlled cherry picker arrived today.



The crazy golf is being prepared for guests, perhaps more in hope than expectation.

Walked up to Allmend today. Still lots of snow at the start of the slalom course.



We've had no significant rain for over a month, but this evening we had a thunderstorm. This is great news, as there isn’t really enough grass in the meadows for grazing livestock.

The Jungfrau summer pass is one of the bargains of the century. They're not being advertised on the JB website at the moment, presumably because many of the services are closed. You can still get a summer pass though, from a railway station. We bought ours today.

Snow above about 1900 metres yesterday. Got a nice moonlight shot of the mountains after the rain cleared away yesterday evening.



More rain today, but the forecast is good for next week. Restaurants can reopen from the 11th May, everyone is looking forward to that! Still no mountain transport until June though.

Went over to Mürren today. Lots of work going on for the railway upgrades. New raised platform at Winteregg.



Cable car to Grütschalp is limited to 15 passengers - Mürren very quiet therefore. This being a Sunday, the only place that was open was Mr Tham's takeaway.
