Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 26 May 2016

Zermatt (250cm) is the only one of our Swiss summer ski resorts currently open. The resort had six lifts running on Thursday 26th of May, where good skiing conditions on well-groomed pistes was available under sunny skies. The weekend ahead is forecast to be relatively warm, the freezing level is likely to be at around 3700m on Saturday, before it then drops on Sunday which could bring some new snow to the resort.

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.
