... gently by the time we reached the mountain, and it was quite cool. We took a ride in the rotating cable car to the top of the mountain and once there, we took a 10 minute ride on the Ice Flyer which is a chair lift that takes you out over the glacier. On a clear day I'm sure it is lovely, but we had a whiteout so not a lot to see. After lunch (two rolls and a beer for 25CHF) we walked through the Ice Cave which was ...

Today we didn't absolutely nothing – a rest day. Although I still feel really tired. It poured and poured and poured so we spent most of the day inside on the internet.
