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 17-Apr-2015)

The Swiss ski season is really winding down and thanks to the recent warmth, the snow has been melting fast. Thursday 16th April brought more clouds than of late, heralding a change that is forecast to bring rain to slopes below 2,500m on Friday. Some of the best conditions in Switzerland are at Samnaun (35/190cm) and its linked ski area with Ischgl over the border in Austria. The resort is set to remain open into May and thanks to the great snowbase in place, this is looking likely. Some great spring skiing has been had in recent days here and expect more of the same over the weekend – possibly topped up by some fresh powder on the upper slopes. The upper slopes of Verbier (0/260cm) remain in good condition, although the return to the resort is becoming tricky with only one run open. The itinerary runs have developed some huge bumps so hit these slopes when the sun has melted through the overnight freeze for some slightly easier and softer turns. It is the last scheduled weekend of operation at many resorts, including Grimentz/Zinal (30/225cm), Davos/Klosters (19/185cm), Saas Fee (12/370cm) and Wengen (0/135cm). Some good skiing should still be found on the upper slopes this weekend, with the potential for a powder day on the upper slopes on Saturday.

European Weather Outlook

The mild air is set to remain over the Alps on Thursday before a weather front arrives during Friday, slightly lowering the freezing level. This is set to sadly bring some heavy rain to slopes below around 2,500m – although expect some local variations. By Saturday colder air should drop the snow level to around 2,000m but the precipitation is set to be lighter. On the upper slopes some good powder is very possible with up to 50cm of new snow expected at altitude during the course of the weekend. Rain is expected in the Pyrenees this weekend, providing a damp end to the ski season. Some powder is possible on the very highest slopes, but lower down more snow loss is expected. Glorious sunny weather is forecast in Bulgaria until Saturday, before the temperature drops significantly overnight in to Sunday, accompanied by some light snowfall. Expect warm and mostly sunny springtime weather in Scandinavia over the weekend and into next week. More clouds are expected in Sweden, with a little light snow possible although there is a good chance of some nice sunny breaks too. The clouds are set to clear from Scotland during Friday to leave a sunny and warm weekend –perfect for setting up spring snow conditions. This weather pattern is forecast to continue well into next week.
