Snow overview for Switzerland
Thick clouds covered much of the Swiss Alps on Thursday 26th March, bringing snowfall to most of our featured resorts. The best conditions are up high as the temperatures of late have been relatively mild, resulting in some heavier conditions on the lower slopes.
Zermatt (5/270cm) and Saas Fee (70/340cm) have seen the heaviest snowfall this week, with the former reporting 30cm and the latter 40cm on Thursday morning. Some excellent powder conditions have been reported at both resorts, but sadly many of the lifts at Saas Fee were closed on Thursday – but are expected to open in time for the weekend.
Elsewhere, the snowfall was lighter and much of the precipitation fell as rain/sleet on the lower slopes. Verbier (1/215cm) caught 5cm of fresh snow to go with 40cm of snow in the past seven days. The leader in resort reported some great powder up high and on the itinerary slopes such as Tortin, Mont Gele and Mont Fort.
Some of the lower resorts have suffered in the recent spell of weather as all but the very highest slopes saw rainfall. Les Mosses (10/20cm) and Anzere (0/90cm) are examples of this, with some bare patches reported on the lower slopes.
Colder air is set to spread in during Friday, dropping the freezing level to below resort level and bringing some further light snowfall. Some sunny spells are possible later on Friday and into Saturday, before heavier snow returns on Sunday and Monday, with 20-50cm forecast for much of the country.
