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 25-Apr-2015)

It has been a gloriously sunny week at for those resorts lucky enough to still be open. As with France, a significant change in the weather is expected over the weekend, initially bringing rain before the weather gets much colder and snow falls to all levels by Monday. The biggest skiable areas in Switzerland are currently Zermatt (0/240cm) and Samnaun (20/180cm), with more limited terrain on offer elsewhere. Sadly it is no longer possible to ski right back down to either resort, but conditions up high remain good and both are set to continue skiing into May. Engelberg (0/350cm) and Verbier (0/240cm) continue to offer some decent snowsports on the upper slopes, although the latter is set to close this weekend. Andermatt (0/550cm) retains its huge upper base, but lower down the warm weather is beginning to take its toll on the snow. Sunday 26th April marks the end of the season at Andermatt, Engelberg, Murren, Pontresina and Verbier.

European Weather Outlook

Following a prolonged spell of warm and sunny weather, the weather is set to change massively over the weekend in the Alps. Heavy rain is expected to move in during the course of Saturday, with snow only falling above 2,500m. A second weather front moving through on Sunday night is also set to bring heavy rain, but the temperature is set to drop rapidly through the night and by Monday morning the snow level could be as low as 1,500m. High regions could see in excess of 50cm of fresh snow by Monday, and lower levels around 20cm on Monday alone once the weather cools. The cold and snowy theme is set to continue next week – perhaps with the snow level dropping below 1,000m. So winter is forecast to return with a bang. A mild and damp final weekend of the season is forecast for Bulgaria, although there may be a few sunny breaks over the weekend – especially in the mornings. The forecast for Scandinavia is looking changeable and noticeably colder than of late. Sweden may catch some great late-season snowfall, with Are expecting up to 40cm of new snow which should set it up for a great final week of the season. Winter is set to return to the Scottish Highlands through Saturday, bringing with it some potentially heavy snowfall into next week. The great season is set to continue…!
