Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 17 April 2014

It has been a mixed week for Swiss resorts, depending on which side of the country you are looking at. For example, eastern resorts such as Davos (0/141cm) and St Moritz (20/140cm) received around 10cm earlier this week but since then the sun has re-emerged. In the west it’s been a predominantly sunny week.

Verbier (10/147cm) has good spring snow on its mountains, but unlike the resorts in the east there hasn’t been any fresh snow for a while. This could change this weekend though as more unsettled weather is expected to move in. Freezing levels will remain around 2,400m so fresh snow will be confined to the upper slopes, but it should improve conditions nonetheless.
