Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 28 April 2016

Following snow accumulation of up to 40cm earlier this week, the sun returned to the sky on Thursday 28th April.   Temperatures have been low and slopes have been quiet, meaning there was some great skiing on offer for those that ventured out.
The best conditions can currently be found at Engleberg (5/375cm); the resort received 30cm of new snow on the 27th April, providing some great skiing being served by 9 running lifts. Elsewhere, Pontresina (15/24cm) remains open despite limited cover of snow in places.
Looking to the weekend, the resorts that are still open should see some cloud with the chance of the odd snow shower.  Temperatures are forecasted to be around freezing level at mid-mountain, and Friday should see it get as low as -4C in Zermatt (0/220cm).

We'd like to award a gold star each to Russ Farn and Ed Taylor, our ski leaders on 3rd/4th April.
Having skied with the club for many years, in different places and with a number of leaders we are used to excellence, and SCGB doing what it says on the tin, but these two took it to a new level!
Passionate and knowledgeable about the sport but more importantly about the mountains, snow and weather we were in safe hands. Meticulous in planning the day to suit the group and the snow conditions, they managed to give everyone a bit of what they wanted, including a live jazz band to exactly my taste for lunch -how did they do that? -OK that was pure chance, but the rest was good planning and local knowledge, these guys had done the homework.
Fun to be with, and very caring too, we strongly recommend skiing/boarding with them if you get the chance, we certainly hope to again.
Oh yes and Zermatt's not bad either, Lovely, but long (4hours) train journey from Geneva and no buffet car on the train any more (Swiss standards slipping) so go prepared or eat at the airport before getting the train, -Visp is a very quiet place at night!
Fab scenery and all that, Matterhorn still breath-taking, although paying £30 for a pizza was a new experience, even by Swiss standards, not a place to go to if you are on a shoe-string.
