Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 16 April 2015

The Swiss ski season is really winding down and thanks to the recent warmth, the snow has been melting fast. Thursday 16th April brought more clouds than of late, heralding a change that is forecast to bring rain to slopes below 2,500m on Friday.

Some of the best conditions in Switzerland are at Samnaun (35/190cm) and its linked ski area with Ischgl over the border in Austria. The resort is set to remain open into May and thanks to the great snowbase in place, this is looking likely. Some great spring skiing has been had in recent days here and expect more of the same over the weekend – possibly topped up by some fresh powder on the upper slopes.

The upper slopes of Verbier (0/260cm) remain in good condition, although the return to the resort is becoming tricky with only one run open. The itinerary runs have developed some huge bumps so hit these slopes when the sun has melted through the overnight freeze for some slightly easier and softer turns.

It is the last scheduled weekend of operation at many resorts, including Grimentz/Zinal (30/225cm), Davos/Klosters (19/185cm), Saas Fee (12/370cm) and Wengen (0/135cm). Some good skiing should still be found on the upper slopes this weekend, with the potential for a powder day on the upper slopes on Saturday.

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.
