Snow overview for Switzerland
Thursday 11 February 2016

It was a sunny start to the day for many resorts across Switzerland on Thursday 11th February, with cloud expected to move in over the course of the afternoon. Plenty of new snow has been reported throughout many regions over the course of the past week, which has seen conditions improve significantly as a result.

The high winds of earlier in the week have abated for the time being which should make for a much more pleasant skiing experience over the coming days. Excellent conditions can be found across the majority of regions, with standout resorts including Engelberg (30/340cm) and Verbier (27/200cm), where 10cm of new snow has ensured that slopes were excellent on Thursday, with pockets of fresh powder to found on the upper mountain.

Cloud will move in over the course of Thursday afternoon, bringing with it the possibility of some light snowfall across many resorts. Snow is set to fall over much of the weekend, the heaviest of which will fall over the course of Saturday, with around 15-30m expected across northern Switzerland. Light snow is expected to continue falling over much of the week ahead, with visibility greatly affected as a result. Temperatures will remain low across many regions, with lows of around -5C expected. With lots of new snow in many resorts, the avalanche risk is expected to be considerable over the coming days, so be sure to take extra care and check with in resort for the latest information.

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.
