Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 05 March 2015

Following the brief mild blip on Sunday, new snow has brought a return to some excellent powder conditions across Switzerland. The last of the snow was clearing through on Thursday morning, leaving behind sunny skies but also some very high winds, touching 100mph at altitude in the south of the country.

Zermatt (30/270cm) was one of the resorts worst affected by the high winds, resulting in only 19 of the 54 lifts being able to run on Thursday 5th March. Saas Fee (90/310cm), St Moritz (65/154cm) and Flims/Laax (40/330cm) also suffered from high winds, with lift closures reported in the upper ski areas. Once the winds subside as is forecast, some great skiing will be on offer at these resorts.

Lower winds and clearing skies resulted in some great skiing in the north of the country following loads of new snow. Davos (65/200cm) and Klosters (65/200cm) both have seen lots of powder and Ski Club Leader’s in both resorts have reported some fantastic off piste conditions.

Similar reports have been coming out of the Bernese Oberland, particularly at Adelboden (58/130cm) following 27cm of new snow on Thursday and across the Jungfrau Region. Grindelwald (20/210cm) was the country’s snowiest spot, picking up 45cm of powder, with Murren (90/230cm) not far behind with 36cm of new snow.

Sunny skies are forecast to take charge over the weekend so some amazing skiing should be on offer across the country, especially as the winds drop. The sun is expected to continue through the start of next week, with temperatures rising to a touch above freezing at mid-mountain level.

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.
