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-2017)
Following the period of cold weather and snow, ski conditions in Switzerland remain very good for the time of year. Base depths on the upper slopes are generally good, and thanks to freezing temperatures, the groomers have been able to create some nice on piste conditions. Off piste, there are some still fresh lines to be had for those resorts that received new snow over the last few days.
The resorts around the Matterhorn region are offering some of the best conditions at present. Saas Fee (10/255cm), Zermatt (0/155cm) and Zinal (5/115cm) where all looking in good nick, and were enjoying a lovely bluebird day on Thursday 20th April.
The forecast for this weekend is predominately sunny, with rising temperatures for most resort. However, by Monday 24th we could see further snowfall right across the country.
European Weather Outlook
The forecast for the continental European skiing locations is for further clear skies as we move over the weekend. However, cloudier skies are forecast to return and the temperature should once again drop. This could bring some heavy snowfall too.
Solden in Austria has the greatest predicted snowfall of any of our reported resorts, with over two metres of fresh snow possible by the end of April, with the heaviest dumps of snow likely in the middle of next week.
Austria is predicted to receive the greatest amount of snow overall, although resorts in Italy, France and Switzerland should not miss out either. April can often deliver some outstanding wintry conditions and this year is no different.
Fresh snow could hit the Scottish resorts over this period too.
