... bottom of the second T-bar before heading back across a traverse to the first T-bar. Having completed this loop JJ wanted to head back to the terrain park so we separated from John and George. When we got towards the bottom of the top T-bar the queue was very short so JJ and I took this for an extended loop. The runs off this T-bar had, by now, seen a lot of traffic.

We dumped the ski equipment and set off back to Saas Grund for food. JJ played in the snow, which now amounted to 20cm in Saas Grund. We grabbed sandwiches and a cream cake for lunch and came back to the hotel. While we waited for the bus JJ made ...
