Snow overview for Switzerland

16 January 2019

Following quite a period of differing snow conditions between the East and West of Switzerland, overnight into Monday 14th saw substantial snowfall across large parts of the Valais region, with upwards of half a metre of snowfall in 36 hours. This delivered a huge change to the conditions, delivering great powder conditions not only to the most typically snow sure resorts such as Zermatt, Verbier and Saas Fee, but also to many others in the region including Grimentz – Zinal, and Crans Montana. This did lead to disrupted resort openings as the mountains were made safe, including no skiing in much of Zermatt and all of Saas Fee on Monday. However, by Tuesday lunchtime a far wider range of terrain was open to ski.

Further east, such large snowfall amounts disrupted skiing even more severely in resorts including Andermatt, Engelberg and the Jungfrau, as well as Davos / Klosters and nearby ski areas. Many of these resorts saw upwards of half a metre in a 24 hour period on Sunday, so work to return the resorts to normality is very much an ongoing process. Tuesday 15th at finally saw a return of clearer skies and calmer winds, although this may only last a couple of days before cloudy skies once again return over much of the northern Alps.
