Snow overview for Switzerland
Monday 20 February 2017

Monday 20th February was another great day to be out in the Swiss mountains. Weather wise it was a pleasant day, with sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. On piste snow conditions can be described as good generally and excellent on the freshly groomed runs this morning, thanks partly to the snow which fell during Friday and Saturday that has helped to refresh the mountain. Early morning conditions are slightly firm and fast becoming more varied and soft as the day progresses. Off piste conditions are tending to be poor and mostly packed/tracked, and in some places patchy snow cover is all that is available.

In the week ahead, tomorrow is expected mostly cloudy although no snow is expected. Beyond this brief change conditions will remain fairly pleasant with partly cloudy skies dominating until the week. Friday is expected to be a snowy cloudy day. In the long range forecast there currently some significant snowfalls forecast, better information will be available on this after the weekend.

A bit like William, we have been going to Wengen the week before the Lauberhorn race for the last 5 years. The big advantage is the resort is very quiet at the start of the week and even although the hotels fill up with the ski teams and their entourage towards the weekend, most of them don't actually end up skiing!
The problem for the last few years is that poor early snow conditions has meant that many runs have not been opened (also true in Grindlewald and Murren) and even if snow does arrive that week, the race preparation not surprisingly takes priority!
This year we switched our visit to 2 weeks later... fantastic! Just as quiet but now all the runs were open to the public including the Lauberhorn downhill and Slalom courses.
We also switched to the Schonegg hotel (having previously stayed at the Belvedere and Wenegerhof and visited many others)... The Schonegg is not cheap but we would thoroughly recommend it.
