Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 17 April 2014

It has been a mixed week for Swiss resorts, depending on which side of the country you are looking at. For example, eastern resorts such as Davos (0/141cm) and St Moritz (20/140cm) received around 10cm earlier this week but since then the sun has re-emerged. In the west it’s been a predominantly sunny week.

Verbier (10/147cm) has good spring snow on its mountains, but unlike the resorts in the east there hasn’t been any fresh snow for a while. This could change this weekend though as more unsettled weather is expected to move in. Freezing levels will remain around 2,400m so fresh snow will be confined to the upper slopes, but it should improve conditions nonetheless.

My third time to Engelberg and probably the best yet. Engelberg is hardly known to the British and indeed to many others outside those that live in Zurich, Zug or Lucerne and its hardened band of off piste supporters, including quite a few Scandinavians.
It is primarily a weekend place for Zurich etc, so busy queues at the weekend but really uncrowded during the week. It is the complete opposite of the big French resorts, with few cruisy pistes, but the lift served off piste is some of the best. The most famous are the Steinberg glacier (1200m vertical), Galtiberg all the way down to the valley at Furenalp (2000m), Laub (1000m) and both east and west from Jochstock. The glacier definitely has some crevasses, I've seen a boarder break through into one, and generally the terrain is avalanche prone. There are plenty of very good local mountain guides.
It has an historical snow record of 1 metre more than many big resorts (Zermatt, Verbier, Val d'Isere).
