Locals suggested another Chur, Switzerland area moderate tour: Mattjisch Horn south of Fiderese Huberg (see map below). We would have liked something higher and farther, but nice to have this on the list for a morning when the rain reminded me of the shower I drenched myself with the night before.
Anyhow, we drove the rad road up to parking just over a kilometer below a funky ski area consisting of surface lifts and some berg hotels that were not much more than glorified shacks, which we liked. Berghaus Arfina was the nicer of the two, Berghause Heuberge being a bit on the remodeled farmhouse side of the equation. Neither had functional internet, so nix. More on the i-net note: The only place we could find in Chur with decent internet is a bier halle in the old (and beautiful) part of the village. A bit noisy with the shouting Swiss guys and blaring American pop music, but whatever works. The brew was good, but I digress.
Shew. Let us hope the weather improves. Meanwhile, we head to Austria tomorrow. We’ll see what happens after that. Big plans in the works, but weather defines all (and it is said that in the mountains of Austria there may be powder at higher elevations during mornings this coming weekend. Now that would be interesting).
