Yes, it’s been half term carnage in Verbier – and everywhere else actually. Which means the blog’s been a bit light on news.
Although, it’s not been that busy, really. Televerbier are excitedly bandying around figures in the hundreds of thousands relating to how many people went through the area over last weekend, but the queues haven’t been too bad.
OK, we’ve had a few hotspots first thing in the morning, and the run into resort is still the lottery it’s always been, but a pretty chilled week in spite of the huge numbers floating about.
I’m starting to wonder where they actually go – perhaps there’s a wormhole somewhere on Greppon Blanc that billions of people disappear into each day.
