I’m in Zermatt for a week’s skiing. To avoid having my laptop confiscated by my wife(!), time spent writing posts, and viewing blogs will be limited, so posts this week will of necessity be brief. And I apologize for the fact that there will be limited time to comment on all your posts, although I will try to post ‘thanks’ on Twitter as per usual.
It was snowing last night as we arrived, and we woke today to low cloud, dull skies and fresh snow to add to the already generous depth. There have been no blue skies or glorious views to bring you. It has been a day of ‘flat light’ and poor visibility at times that combine to make skiing tricky. At times you simply ‘feel’ the slopes through your skis rather than see them. Disconcerting!
Despite the conditions there are images to find. Both taken where pistes divide.
The building in the second image is of the Fluhalp Hut – a beautiful spot in summer, and not bad in winter if you fancy something warming on a cold day.
Hopefully the weather will improve for tomorrow.
