Snow overview for Switzerland
Monday 08 February 2016

Every Swiss resort was reporting fresh snow on Monday morning, with the heaviest falls being reported in the south and the east of the country. The sun was out briefly to start the new week, but it rapidly clouded over and by the afternoon snow was falling once again.

The pick of the conditions on Monday could be found at the resorts of Pontresina (51/90cm) and St Moritz (60/91cm) in the Engadin region in the far southeast of the country. Both were reporting around 30cm of much needed fresh snow and the good news is that a lot more is in the forecast.

Saas Fee (88/250cm) and Zermatt (30/200cm) were reporting similar values, resulting in some fantastic skiing conditions amongst the fresh powder. Sadly high winds limited the lift operations on the highest slopes, with all the lifts linking Zermatt to Italy closed on Monday. High winds were also an issue at Gstaad (31/255cm), Murren (80/210cm) and Wengen (20/90cm) where all of the upper areas were on wind hold.

The next spell of heavy snow is set to move in during Monday night from the west. As a result resorts such as Nendaz (45/200cm) and Verbier (20/200cm) and Grimentz/Zinal (60/184cm) are in the firing line to receive the most snow. By the time the snow lets up on Wednesday, between 50 and 100cm of snow is possible across the country, with the upper end of this band likely at the aforementioned resorts in the west.
