My 'Magic Pass' season came to a more than satisfactory end with six excellent days in Saas-Fee
(16-21 April). It launched with the 0600 flight to Zurich
(no passport or baggage delays) and onward travel from the airport railway station to Visp and then the postbus up to the Saas Valley and skiing by 1.30pm. Conditions all week were excellent and there were overnight snow refreshments along with a day of heavy snow down to the resort on Thursday - spring scenes turned back into winter! The resort was quiet although enough people around for a good atmosphere and there were more pistes and itineraries open than on our last visit in December. The often-closed Egginerjoch was superb. Skied until 2.30pm on the Friday and back on the 3.52 bus back to Visp and direct train to Geneva
airport in time for the last BA flight back to Heathrow. All in all, a great way to end the season.
