Snow overview for Switzerland
Monday 22 May 2017

Zermatt (150cm), did not receive the amount of snow that some forecasts were suggesting. However, around 15cm did fall on the 19th May, and has left some nice snow up on the Matterhorn glacier. Monday 22nd was a pleasant day for the resort, which saw sunny skies across the region, and some good skiing both on and off piste.

Visited: April 2017

Spent the first week of April in this delightful resort which nestles beneath a stunning array of peaks. Very peaceful with no cars, a good selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars and an interesting museum.
40cm of snow on the first day made for quite a challenging start but Robert, the ski club leader, managed to coax a good day's skiing out of the conditions! Had the pleasure of an 8.30 start the following day to ski the amazing fresh powder with visiting leader, Margaret Scott, for 1 long run from Felskinn, my first experience of on piste snow like that and grateful to Margaret for suggesting it! Very envious that I wasn't competent enough to join Robert and the others for the following off piste days.
The snow held up for the remainder of the week and whilst lower slopes became predictably slushy in the afternoon, soaking up the sun and beautiful views from the Larix with a cold beer and new friends more than compensated! Mid week I snowshoed to the Britannia Hutte for lunch and more staggering views and would thoroughly recommend this for a different experience.
A great week, breathtaking scenery, exciting skiing, no queues, met some lovely people, lots of laughs in the Metro Bar and hope to go back!
My only other comment would be that it is not clear from the programme that the majority of days are skiing off piste. Fortunately the leader contacted me if any of these finished early so we could ski on piste for the remainder of the day. Otherwise you could end up skiing on your own quite a lot if not experienced off piste.
