Snow overview for Switzerland
Monday 20 February 2017

Monday 20th February was another great day to be out in the Swiss mountains. Weather wise it was a pleasant day, with sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. On piste snow conditions can be described as good generally and excellent on the freshly groomed runs this morning, thanks partly to the snow which fell during Friday and Saturday that has helped to refresh the mountain. Early morning conditions are slightly firm and fast becoming more varied and soft as the day progresses. Off piste conditions are tending to be poor and mostly packed/tracked, and in some places patchy snow cover is all that is available.

In the week ahead, tomorrow is expected mostly cloudy although no snow is expected. Beyond this brief change conditions will remain fairly pleasant with partly cloudy skies dominating until the week. Friday is expected to be a snowy cloudy day. In the long range forecast there currently some significant snowfalls forecast, better information will be available on this after the weekend.

Beautiful Engelberg
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: January 2016

Engelberg combines a typical Swiss mountain town with some excellent skiing. The town has an ancient monastery, where they make cheese and beer, and there are various museums and other facilities that you wouldn't find in a French resort.
The skiing is quite limited if you are on your own but with a mountain guide, compliments of Freshtracks, the mountain is yours. There is so much off piste skiing in safe conditions and beautiful scenery. Admittedly, sometimes a short walk or skin may be necessary to connect back to the main area. But in exchange for fresh powder, which isn't trashed by the local lads in the first hour or even the first week, that is a small sacrifice.
The Swiss are unfailingly charming, the connection from the airport by train is a pleasure and Engelberg, with its own microclimate, is reputed to get the first snow from the North.
The Hotel Terrace is not luxurious but the food is plentiful, the rooms comfortable and the price, which includes the ski pass, is a bargain. The free wine at meals is at best only wet and cold but that is the only criticism.
