Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 05 March 2015

Following the brief mild blip on Sunday, new snow has brought a return to some excellent powder conditions across Switzerland. The last of the snow was clearing through on Thursday morning, leaving behind sunny skies but also some very high winds, touching 100mph at altitude in the south of the country.

Zermatt (30/270cm) was one of the resorts worst affected by the high winds, resulting in only 19 of the 54 lifts being able to run on Thursday 5th March. Saas Fee (90/310cm), St Moritz (65/154cm) and Flims/Laax (40/330cm) also suffered from high winds, with lift closures reported in the upper ski areas. Once the winds subside as is forecast, some great skiing will be on offer at these resorts.

Lower winds and clearing skies resulted in some great skiing in the north of the country following loads of new snow. Davos (65/200cm) and Klosters (65/200cm) both have seen lots of powder and Ski Club Leader’s in both resorts have reported some fantastic off piste conditions.

Similar reports have been coming out of the Bernese Oberland, particularly at Adelboden (58/130cm) following 27cm of new snow on Thursday and across the Jungfrau Region. Grindelwald (20/210cm) was the country’s snowiest spot, picking up 45cm of powder, with Murren (90/230cm) not far behind with 36cm of new snow.

Sunny skies are forecast to take charge over the weekend so some amazing skiing should be on offer across the country, especially as the winds drop. The sun is expected to continue through the start of next week, with temperatures rising to a touch above freezing at mid-mountain level.

This resort has something for everyone but it's real draw is the excellent off piste.
Normally quiet and no queue's for the lifts mean max snow time.
Very quiet apre but a few bars and restaurants to keep you amused.
To get the best of the area hire a guide and head out for the off piste. Stunning descents with hardly a soul in sight.
