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 04-May-2015)
Mostly cloudy skies were in place over Switzerland on Thursday, although sadly these are expected to thicken over the weekend and lots of rain is forecast. The freezing level is expected to rise above 3,000m so rain is set to fall to all levels.
Limited skiing is on offer at Adelboden (0/70cm) and on the glacier at Les Diablerets (0/275cm). Four lifts were turning at the former and eight were running at the latter to access 9km and 22km of pistes respectively. Both are set to close this weekend, but Engelberg (0/350cm) is set to remain open well into May with seven lifts accessing a limited 20km of slopes.
For greater mileage head to Samnaun (10/180cm), where 186km of slopes remain open, including the runs back to resort. Zermatt (0/210cm) is another good option with 120km of pistes open, including the link across to Cervinia in Italy. Samnaun is closing after Sunday 3rd May, but Zermatt is set to remain open all summer.
All of our other featured Swiss resorts are now closed for the season.
European Weather Outlook
The weather in the Alps is set to take a significant turn for the worse over the coming days, as heavy rain sets in and the freezing level continually climbs upwards. Snow should initially fall on Friday to around 2,500m but will readily turn to rain up as high as 3,000m by Sunday and Monday. Current forecasts are calling for over 200mm of rain by early next week in places, so flooding may become an issue and certainly the snow conditions will deteriorate rapidly if this much rain falls.
Norway can expect great weather for its final weekend of skiing, however with cloudier skies forecast for Sweden, low light lenses might be appropriate than sunglasses.
Scotland is forecast a fantastic Bank Holiday weekend, with long sunny spells expected across the country. A few showers are possible to end the week, but come the weekend these are expected to be more scattered.
