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 01-Mar-2017)

Monday 27th February was a mostly stable and spring like day in Switzerland. Last week’s snowfalls have lightly refreshed the pistes and current on snow conditions are very enjoyable, although far more spring like then we would normally expect for February. Clouds will increase later this evening as Switzerland heads into a week of much needed snowfall. Tuesday will see widespread moderate to heavy snowfalls at all of our featured Swiss resorts. Expect powder and storm skiing conditions to remain all week before another round of heavy snowfalls over the weekend.

European Weather Outlook

It is set to be a complicated week for The Alps. Much needed heavy snowfalls will start late on Monday (27th) night and remain all day Tuesday, tapering off by early Wednesday morning. The heaviest snowfalls will be in France and Italy, but no matter where you are skiing in The Alps there will be fresh snow. Strong winds at altitude are forecast, so some ski areas may experience limited lift operations at times. It will be an excellent but challenging week of skiing ahead for the Alps in what can only be described as varied and complex season so far. This weekend may see another round of heavy snowfalls, mostly on the southern and eastern sides of the Alps. Check back Thursday for a more comprehensive overview of upcoming conditions. Elsewhere, snow is expected in the Pyrenees on Thursday, but not as heavy as what we will see in The Alps. Tuesday will see light to moderate snowfalls - Not enough to call a powder day but certainly enough to make on-piste conditions excellent. Further north in Scandinavia, another typical weather week lies ahead. Light snow falls and fairly dull overcast skies will be the dominate feature. Temperatures will remain slightly below freezing creating most soft snow conditions.
