Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 26 March 2015

Thick clouds covered much of the Swiss Alps on Thursday 26th March, bringing snowfall to most of our featured resorts. The best conditions are up high as the temperatures of late have been relatively mild, resulting in some heavier conditions on the lower slopes.

Zermatt (5/270cm) and Saas Fee (70/340cm) have seen the heaviest snowfall this week, with the former reporting 30cm and the latter 40cm on Thursday morning. Some excellent powder conditions have been reported at both resorts, but sadly many of the lifts at Saas Fee were closed on Thursday – but are expected to open in time for the weekend.

Elsewhere, the snowfall was lighter and much of the precipitation fell as rain/sleet on the lower slopes. Verbier (1/215cm) caught 5cm of fresh snow to go with 40cm of snow in the past seven days. The leader in resort reported some great powder up high and on the itinerary slopes such as Tortin, Mont Gele and Mont Fort.

Some of the lower resorts have suffered in the recent spell of weather as all but the very highest slopes saw rainfall. Les Mosses (10/20cm) and Anzere (0/90cm) are examples of this, with some bare patches reported on the lower slopes.

Colder air is set to spread in during Friday, dropping the freezing level to below resort level and bringing some further light snowfall. Some sunny spells are possible later on Friday and into Saturday, before heavier snow returns on Sunday and Monday, with 20-50cm forecast for much of the country.

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.
