Missed the window of good weather, but it was still fine when I left home. Opted for classic skiing. Beautiful new snow and deep, new tracks, a dream. But soon afterwards the wind picked up and it started to snow. As it was in the back kept on going mostly uphill. Turned around bc I wanted to be home at a decent hour and faced a major, very gusty snowstorm. Sometimes it felt like "blind" skiing as the tracks had disappeared and just "felt" the classic tracks. Had to double pole most of the downhills as the wind was a major brake, once it even stopped my dead in my tracks. Was fun though as I was warm and knew that the car was not too far.
However, when I was at the car my touch-free car opener didn't work anymore. Could open the doors manually but the car wouldn't start and theres no manual opening anymore. Rats, I was stuck and the snow kept falling fast. Tried to call Urs but my I-phone was dead, too, it seems it goes from 60% to zero in cold weather in no time. Tried to warm up the car key but it didn't budge. Eventually, (after almost half an hour trying, the manual was 2 cm thick, did not have the nerve to really search in it), I decided to go ask a single person on the opposite slope who was sledding with his two smaller kids whether I could make a phone call. It turns out he was the owner of a body shop and he came over and looked and tried. And he was successful by holding the key close to where probably the starter was and the engine was purring! Drove home relieved and slowly down steeply and in hairpin turns over snowy roads.
