Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 23 March 2017

Thursday March 23rd was a mostly cloudy and snowy day in Switzerland. Conditions are fairly varied around Switzerland right now, although cloud and light snow is the dominate feature. Andermatt (18/400cm) was reporting an astonishing 90cm of fresh snow this morning, this huge overnight snowfall prevented all but six lifts from spinning today. Briefly focusing on this ski area, the next 72 hours will bring improving atmospheric conditions. Potentially some outstanding skiing to be found this weekend, although snow conditions and the avalanche problem will differ dramatically with only small changes in altitude.
Elsewhere Engelberg (20/72cm) and Leysin (10/80cm) also received around 20cms in the past 24 hours. There was some varied and windblown snowfalls around The Eigar and The Matterhorn. Saas Fee (20/203cm) was mostly closed today due to the current extreme weather in the high alpine.

With all this varied storm activity, snow conditions are best described as changeable. For those heading out this weekend or next week, the key to finding the best conditions will be finding the right altitude. Generally speaking the higher the better, but this isn’t always the case in the spring. Expect to find different types of snow all over the mountain. Keep in mind that snow transforms quickly throughout the day influencing both the piste quality and the avalanche risk. Expect upper slopes and zones to close early due to evolving avalanche hazards.

Following up on a quick visit in February we took the whole family back for Easter. We stayed in Samnaun Dorf at the refurbished 4 *Hotel Garni Muttler owned by the loveable, English-speaking owner, Jose da Silva. He's from Porto originally and so are his friendly staff. It's a B&B ‘aparthotel’ with big rooms, plasma screens and a basement wellness spa. Jose runs a complimentary ski bus to Plan at your behest.


There's ample back-bowl skiing up on Alp Trida, loads of great accessible blacks further over on the Ischgl side and ski touring over towards Serfaus in Tirol. We would recommend Zegg for ski hire as they are really professional with good quality hire gear.


The Alprausch hut down in Laret is wild with a lively ski bus back up to the main village at the end of the day! Des Alpes offers modern food, done well. The restaurant Alpina, opposite the hotel’s front door, is good value with traditional Swiss fare. It is where all the workers/locals eat. Pre-order your fondues and get an appetite for serious quantities of meat! The Gemuetlich Schmuggler Alm does excellent evening meals with a Tirolean music night on one of the midweek days.


Samnaun is basically pretty quiet and perfect for groups/couples wanting to hole up high in a winter paradise away from the hustle and bustle of the big resorts.
