Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 23 February 2017

Thursday 23rd February was a day of hazy sunshine and increasing clouds as The Swiss Alps heads towards much needed fresh snowfall. Conditions have been very spring like this week with warm temperatures and lots of strong sunshine. Today on piste snow was a mix of spring slush and well-groomed pistes in the high altitude resorts. The skiing is still good from the mid-mountain and higher, although the lower slopes are starting to show the effects of high traffic and spring like weather. 
 
The coming change was evident today by the number of lenticular clouds which could be seen forming atop the high peaks in Switzerland. Starting late this evening cold air and snow falls will continue into tomorrow, bringing light to moderate snow falls to all our featured resorts. The weekend will be sunny and spring like again, however a significant weather shift is forecast next week. Heavy snowfalls are expected from Tuesday the 28th.

Visited: March 2016

Not a pretty place but access to some great skiing. I stayed in Davos Dorf which is easy access to Parsenn area but there was little else to commend it. In future I would stay at Davos Platz end of town. Switzerland seems to be particularly expensive these days!
I arrived for the new fall of snow in early March so had great snow conditions, whilst predominantly a piste skier there was a good deal of off piste skiing taking place. The run to Kublis was open with snow all the way and I was able to get over to the Madrisa area of Klosters.
Enjoyed a day skiing with Sarah Hitchenson and a further day with Alban the leader from Klosters. Many thanks to both of them for their company and choice of runs.
