looks a bit leaky to me, they are having a fire sale though. The cantonal bankruptcy office are flogging a development where the developer went bust and a few (British) second home owners are threatening to sell up if the Isenau lift shuts because it’s where Ollie and Portia learnt to ski (that’s pretty much the flavour of the facebook group) and someone, absolutely anyone will do, should finance a new lift for them.
Meanwhile, Glacier 3000 opened today. There’s a reasonable snow cover and although it’s a bit thin around the main lift complex that’s more to do with wind which we’ve been watching stripping the snow from here. The lift guy was saying it will be open in the week which begs the question why we went today and queued (for a couple of minutes) with the freestylers while they exhaled smoke from their rollups at us.
You can get some idea of the snow on this photo, it’s the pre-aloes so it’s sub-2000m and there’s not much snow left from the earlier fall at that height. That’s the Jura on the horizon, no sign of snow but apparently the roads were interesting last weekend when people were caught without their winter tyres on.
