Snow overview for Switzerland
Monday 30 March 2015

Fresh snow has fallen in abundance to many of our featured resorts in Switzerland over the weekend, with some resorts reporting as much as 35cm at high altitude unfortunately the mild temperature at mid-mountain level has brought rainfall but there is plenty of fresh snow higher up just waiting to be skied upon.

The resort of Champery (0/110cm) has reported up to 35cm of fresh snow over the weekend, which has drastically improved skiing at high altitude. The lower resort runs tell a different story as they have become quite heavy with the recent rainfall. Further up however the skiing is excellent with powdery slopes and pockets of fresh powder off the piste. Of the 16 lifts, 15 were turning for the new arrivals. It was still very cloudy on Monday 30th March as the weekends clouds were still lingering so visibility was reduced somewhat.

Saas Fee (70/350cm) was closed on Monday due to high winds.

The week ahead is looking very cloudy with a high probability of continued light snowfall, followed by heavier snow towards the end of the week. The temperature should start to fall too which make for excellent slope conditions.
