Skied the Horn again today. Since we knew the slope it was much easier and, since it snowed all day yesterday, the snow was very good and we are getting much better. Went to town and bought a blumen for our family. They cooked a delicious dinner for us – knodel, bacon and kraut. We even got to eat in their kitchen instead of the breakfast room. We washed our dishes and talked to them in German for an hour or so. Then we went into town to the Greif Keller.
