Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 23 March 2017

Thursday March 23rd was a mostly cloudy and snowy day in Switzerland. Conditions are fairly varied around Switzerland right now, although cloud and light snow is the dominate feature. Andermatt (18/400cm) was reporting an astonishing 90cm of fresh snow this morning, this huge overnight snowfall prevented all but six lifts from spinning today. Briefly focusing on this ski area, the next 72 hours will bring improving atmospheric conditions. Potentially some outstanding skiing to be found this weekend, although snow conditions and the avalanche problem will differ dramatically with only small changes in altitude.
Elsewhere Engelberg (20/72cm) and Leysin (10/80cm) also received around 20cms in the past 24 hours. There was some varied and windblown snowfalls around The Eigar and The Matterhorn. Saas Fee (20/203cm) was mostly closed today due to the current extreme weather in the high alpine.

With all this varied storm activity, snow conditions are best described as changeable. For those heading out this weekend or next week, the key to finding the best conditions will be finding the right altitude. Generally speaking the higher the better, but this isn’t always the case in the spring. Expect to find different types of snow all over the mountain. Keep in mind that snow transforms quickly throughout the day influencing both the piste quality and the avalanche risk. Expect upper slopes and zones to close early due to evolving avalanche hazards.

Small developing village, some new lifts accessing both Grimentz and Zinal, with fresh snow a great playground for accessible off piste, otherwise piste skiing is good but limited.
