Doyle's account of his skiing trip from Davos to Arosa over the Furka Pass: "..I am convinced that the time will come when hundreds of Englishmen will come to Switzerland for the skiing season in March and April. I believe that I may claim to be the first save only two Switzers to do any mountain work (though on a modest scale) on snow-shoes, but I am certain that I will not by many a thousand be the last."
