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 fog that's been plaguing us for the last few days has finally gone, and the sun's come out. The Swiss kids are still on holiday so there are more people tobogganing than skiing on the nursery slope.



It's blisteringly cold. Minus 8 in the village this morning, and minus 14 on the Lauberhorn.

@telford_mike Mike have you skied down to Grund on the Red no.3 or 21 and come back up the Eiger Express to ski down from Eigergletscher yet? If so, what's the new lift like and is it a pain getting onto the snow at Eigergletscher? Was, of course, hoping to use it in a couple of weeks but sadly now unlikely this year unless something dramatic happens!

@DixieDean, yes, new bridge across the river at Grund makes the last, flat section seem shorter than before. Inside the terminal it's all travellators etc so getting around is easy. The new lift is good, with a short, flat walk out onto the snow once you get to the top.

@telford_mike Looks great. Was really looking forward to skiing all the way down to Grund and getting the new lift back Sad Looks a great season as well. I'm not jealous at all! Sadly, can't even go to Scotland or the Pennines either. You definitely got out of the UK at the right time. Have you bought a place over there? And presumably, you're now retired.

@DixieDean, yes, retired, and we rent our house year round. Another nice day today, lots of people departing - they’ll all be back to work or school on Monday. Strange to think it’s only a week to Lauberhorn and there’s hardly any evidence in the village that the race is taking place. Lots of evidence up the mountain though - the nets are all up now and the organisers will be praying that we don’t get a huge snowfall next week.

Unfortunately for them, it looks like Wednesday and Thursday could produce quite a big dump. Looks lovely on the beginner's slope. It was all a bit dodgier last year!

The improvement on the beginners slopes is due a massive investment by the Wengen Ski School. New pipes were laid in the summer from the bottom of Figeller to the Hotel Brunner which connected to the snow making system above the village and this got over the lack of water which had been a problem in the village area for snow making .

Well, the races are on for next weekend after a bit of faffing. Wengen/Lauberhorn/Scheidegg area is off-limits for 'private skiers' (i.e. all of us) until next Monday, so we'll have to make do with Männlichen. Won't be a problem this week as the school holidays have ended and everyone has left.

Yes, hence the reason for the 'faffing' before it was confirmed the races could take place. I'm sure it'll all be fine, we have a big test/vaccination centre in the village (a big tent on the tennis courts) and fingers crossed everything will be kept under control.

I think it was Bob or Rachel that suggested you.

Another beautiful day today.



Pistes are good, if a little hard.



And zero queues.



Assuming the race goes ahead (we still don’t know for sure) some lifts and pistes around the Lauberhorn will be closed for the rest of the week.

More details have emerged today concerning the number of infections - the total is around 70. The next step is for us all to get tested - the Canton are sending a team. Central Sport closed for 10 days this afternoon - too many staff in quarantine to operate the shop.

The ski area is still open, but popular opinion seems to be that this won’t last.

On a brighter note, it's been snowing since lunchtime. Also, as we don’t need the army to look after the race course anymore, all the food that was being provided for them has been divided up into goodie bags which are being distributed. Ours was just delivered - lots of chocolate!

Report on the outbreak in Wengen: https://nationalpost.com/pmn/health-pmn/lauberhorn-ski-classic-canceled-as-uk-tourist-spreads-virus-variant


According to the report the source of the outbreak in Wengen was a British tourist arriving in Wengen but failing to quarantine as they were required to do under Swiss regulations and was only isolated from the rest of the community after a positive test (by which time they had infected many others). Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad I wonder if this is the same person that I heard attended the English Church on Dec 20th? Such selfish behaviour is appalling, and I sincerely hope the Swiss will be able to fine him (or her) for such an egregious failure. Sadly the reputation of the Brits in Wengen who normally get such a warm welcome from locals may be adversely affected by this.... Sad

Snow all last night, amounted to about 20cm. Started snowing again about 5 this afternoon, and now really chucking it down. Whole village is being tested for the virus after the debacle over the race. We went this afternoon. The doctor in charge told me there hadn’t been a single positive test all day.
