For something different, I left work early, attached my skis to my backpack and cycled to Bregenz. It was a nice clear evening and I set off up towards Pfänder on my skis. The sun was setting as I reached Fluh and I continued on up. The snow had been just a thin white coating to begin with but further up it was deeper and deliciously powdery. I had dinner at the restaurant at the top and then after a short panic when my head lamp wasn’t working skied back down. I took a right before Fluh and had a fantastic few hundred metres of powder straight back down to the gondola station. It was a surprisingly enjoyable evening out. I should do it again sometime.
