Snow overview for Switzerland
Monday 22 May 2017

Zermatt (150cm), did not receive the amount of snow that some forecasts were suggesting. However, around 15cm did fall on the 19th May, and has left some nice snow up on the Matterhorn glacier. Monday 22nd was a pleasant day for the resort, which saw sunny skies across the region, and some good skiing both on and off piste.

I arrived on a Wed having preregistered with the Club. Met with leaders John Naismith and Ed Taylor on Wed eve but as they were having their serious off piste day on Thurs I buddied up with another recent arrival for my Thurs ski then skied with John and Ed on Fri. Zermatt was green but there was one skiable track all the way down. Zermatt Unplugged was happening when I arrived so there were events in the village in the evening and at a couple of the restaurants in the mountains at lunchtime. John left on Saturday and I skied with Ed on Sun and Mon before coming home Tue. Wall to wall sunshine throughout, great snow up high and John and Ed were excellent company throughout and it was great to meet and ski with other Club members - and then there was the jazz!!
PS I stayed at the Adonis hotel - 5 mins from the Matterhorn lift and 10 mins into the centre
