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 09-Dec-2016)
No great change in conditions in Switzerland on Thursday 8th of December. Clear sunny and dry is the standard at all of the currently open resorts. The best options still remain the high altitude resorts around The Matterhorn or resorts with north facing slopes. On piste conditions are still good but becoming a mix of hard pack and loose sugar snow. New snow is desperately needed.
Looking forward, the high pressure weather trend continues. For the first time this month, however, snow is appearing in the long range forecast. Snowfalls may start by mid-December but are far more likely to start later.
European Weather Outlook
It’s been dry and sunny for most of Europe recently, and this looks set to continue for the foreseeable future. Austria and Eastern Europe could see some snow over the next week but it will be mostly dry. It’s a similar story in the Pyrenees, where sunshine is set to dominate.
