how to cope in snow

(All Villars 12.2.1988)

With Britain in disarray due to falls of snow it's nice to see how things should be done!

I was living in Leysin in winter 1988 and rarely left the village - it was all skiing and nights in the Vagabond - but one trip out was to Villars. We'd had a huge dump of snow which started the day before, so being British I assumed that trains would be delayed or cancelled. Or course they weren't. The snow was about four feet deep (fresh snow) and at times visibility was almost zero, but the whole journey, with four connections, went like clockwork.
