Herzogenhorn (Nico’s Abschied)

Nico, Philipp, Oli, and I headed out to Feldberg by train early in the morning. It snowed during the journey. We headed off from the Grafenmatt lift up Herzogenhorn. Unlike last time we also headed in the right direction. It was misty and not ideal weather but despite this we still had an enjoyable day trudging around. Oli headed off home in the evening and after briefly having my skis stolen we met up with Hans and got a lift up to the Bergwacht (mountain rescue) hut with an obliging pistenbully driver. We spent the night there in the cosy hut eating homemade hamburgers and playing cards.

We spent Sunday skiing at the Feldberg ski-field. I hired some regular downhill skis for the day.
