Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 27 August 2015

Switzerland is currently offering the best summer skiing conditions in the Alps, with good skiing still available at both Saas Fee (0/70cm) and Zermatt (0/145cm). All scheduled lifts were running at both to access a decent selection of groomed pistes, with both snowparks open for business too. The warm sunshine is set to continue over the weekend so get on up there!

The weather during our ski holiday was brilliant with blue skies and plenty snow. It was a pleasure to meet up with a number of friends from previous years and particularly our Team Leaders Ian Cottam and Phil Jackson. It was my third Zermatt holiday skiing with Ian and Phil and they were both great company and were a major contribution to the enjoyment of the week. There were two groups, a fast group and a slow group, and I elected to join the latter. Both Leaders put together very interesting itineraries each day and set the pace to suit the abilities of their group members. It is very relaxing to have someone else dictate the routes for the day. Lunch stops for me are important and again both Leaders excelled at providing well judged stopping points.
The on-piste conditions could not have been better but off-piste the snow tended to be crusty, broken and rutted so I elected to stay on-piste this year, a decision which I did not regret.
Both Leaders will need to re-qualify before next year and I wish them both every success in that endeavor and see you both next year?
