Snow overview for Switzerland
Monday 05 December 2016

Another clear sunny day in Switzerland as high pressure weather conditions continue on Monday 5th December. The best skiing could be found around the Matterhorn once again, with Zermatt (110cm) and Saas Fee (10/135cm) by far offering the best skiing and snow conditions. More broadly around Switzerland things are looking a little grim, Champery (15cm) in the Portes Du Soleil area reopened its summer biking trails over the weekend.
Unfortunately there is no snow in the forecast for any of our featured Swiss resorts. the current trend of clear, sunny and dry is expected to continue all though this week.

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.
