Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 28 August 2014

There is still plenty of excellent piste skiing available in Switzerland. Zermatt (120cm) and Saas Fee (230cm) are both open for summer skiing and on Thursday 28th August they had plenty of sunshine and nice cool temperatures. There was more cloud cover which developed in the afternoon for both resorts but it remained dry throughout the day. Each resort sits quite high which means the glacial ski area is currently well intact. The off piste is a little varied at the moment as there hasn’t been a substantial snow fall recently but rest assured you can be guaranteed of some excellent piste skiing in Switzerland.

The weekend forecast is indicating more bright starts with afternoon cloud cover developing later.

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.
