Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 29 September 2016

It was a glorious sunny day In Switzerland on Thursday 29th September, where there was clear skies and good summer skiing at two of our featured resorts.

 Zermatt (160cm) had 14 lifts open and skiing was available on 14km of groomed slopes. At Saas Fee (125cm), seven lifts were spinning and summer riding was on offer on five pistes. The weather for the weekend is currently predicted to be a mixed bag.

 Friday and Saturday are forecast to be pleasant and sunny, but rain and cloud is then expected to take its place by Sunday.

We enjoyed a quiet week in Saas Fee in mid January.As usual the Swiss hospitality is second to none particularly at the Hotel Allalin where we stayed. Set in a magnificent valley end with towering mountains all round all very beautiful the town is car free so access to the slopes is by a regular electric shuttle bus service which covers all of the town.
The skiing area is not huge but provides a good variety for all intermediate skiers and we experienced no queues at any time. The off-piste opportunities are limited to some extent by the glaciated nature of the higher slopes but there was plenty of fun to be had. A day trip (by a fifteen minute post bus link) to Saas Grund gave a different perspective of the valley and a days skiing on some pleasant reds and blues with some nice bits of soft snow for those of us who need it.
Mountain food was very good and not as expensive as expected ( don't miss the revolving restaurant on a clear day!) with plenty of options. There are several bars for an apres ski drink (the Metro Bar is quirky but good atmosphere) otherwise quiet at night.
