Mürren Resort Info
Mürren is one of the original ski resorts, developed by Brits in the '20s, remaining a favourite nowadays. There isn't a great range of skiing for all abilities, but 2 things draw people back every time. First is the stupendous scenery that provides views into Germany, France and Italy. Second are the black runs down from the Schilthorn and great off-piste at Blumental, which many advanced skiers find worth the journey alone. If you want more varied skiing you can slide across the Lauterbrunnen Valley. This provides access to the Wengen and Grindelwald slopes, which largely please the intermediate audience. This is best done in the week, as queues build up at the weekend. Add a small-but-stunning village, picture-postcard chalets and no cars and you have one of the great Alpine spots.
There isn't much to Mürren in terms of nightlife, but what there is really hots up at the weekend. During the day the non-skier might find themselves with a lack of activities. The mountain restaurants won't be winning many awards any time soon, but the hotel restaurants are more than adequate.
Access to the village is provided by train or gondola, definitely adding to the Alpine ambience. The revolving restaurant, Piz Gloria (at 2970m) is as good a place as any to enjoy the views. If for nothing else you really must try Mürren for the scenery.

Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 23-Apr-2014)
14 of our featured 30 Swiss resorts are now closed for the season, including the likes of Wengen, Grindelwald and Arosa.
The remaining open resorts all received fresh snow over the weekend, with up to 50cm falling over the course of the Easter weekend in some places. Saas Fee (25/402cm) has fantastic conditions on its upper mountain, with a base depth that’s increased a lot recently. Powder can be found high up if you know where to look. Lower runs are more spring-like but skiing is still possible down into the town itself.
Davos (3/140cm) is still open too, although skiing is limited to the Parsenn area. Again, the snow over the weekend improved conditions and the highest runs have some great skiing on offer.
European Weather Outlook
The forecast is for cloudy skies across the major European nations this week and over next weekend. The freezing level is supposed to rise to around 3,000m this week before dropping back down to around 2,000m next week. This could result in wet weather for many areas this week following by snow conditions on the higher slopes next week.
