Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 18 December 2014

It was a very mixed picture on Thursday 18th in the Swiss Alps. Up to 30cm of fresh snow fell on Wednesday and overnight, but warm temperatures brought rain up to 2,500m for most resorts during Thursday. At altitude some good amounts of new snow will have accumulated, but lower down much of yesterday’s fall will be washed away.

The greatest amount of snow fell in the Bernese Oberland, at resorts such as Gstaad (0/65cm), Wengen (0/25cm) and Crans-Montana (5/40cm). However due to Thursday’s rain, only very limited skiing was available at these resorts and heavy piste conditions were prevalent below 2,500m.

The best skiing during the week has been at altitude, with the pick of the conditions at Zermatt (5/95cm) and Saas-Fee (25/190cm) up at altitude. New snow should improve the piste conditions for the weekend, but resort runs may become icy once the forecast cooler weather arrives on Saturday.

After a warm and mostly sunny Friday, Saturday should bring much colder weather and the potential for some light snowfall, especially in the north of Switzerland.
