It finally arrived! During the last 36 hours, it’s been snowing almost non stop. In the village, we could measure 70cm of new snow at 7.30 this morning. Powder to the people!
Mt Titlis remained closed during the day due to high risks and avalanche danger, this in combination with the huge amount of snow that came in. They had no time or visibility to prepare the ski area. Instead of going into ski tour mode, We found 1m of powder on the Brunni side, open every day from tomorrow! Yieppie!
