To fly or not to fly?

Chrigel Maurer (SUI1), Patrick von Känel (SUI2) are preparing to fly again. They are at the top of the Grubigsteinbahnen, the main mountain of the Lermoos-Tiroler Zugspitz Arena. They are at 1980m where the winds are still manageable at 18km/h, but the athletes are clearly discussing their options, as they have not been moving for a while. They will be seeing the thunderstorms that are approaching northwest from the mountain range and over the area of the next Turnpoint 6 Säntis. If these approach any further towards the east, the athletes will have to land as it is dangerous to fly in thunderstorms.
