Saas Fee Resort Info
Neighbour to the illustrious Zermatt, Saas-Fee has some spectacular scenery . Sitting at 1800m, snow in Saas-Fee is all but guaranteed. The skiing is perhaps not quite as challenging as Zermatt's, with most pistes suited more to beginners and intermediates. The ski domain is not that expansive, with only 100km of its own pistes, while the lift is rather inefficient. Snowboarders and freestylers will however find Saas-Fee a pretty good bet, with year round snow park options: the small beginner's park located near the village ski lifts in Stafelwald, the main park is situated in the Morenia area and the summer park in Allalin.
Saas-Fee ski resort
Saas-Fee has maintained more of its alpine village charm than Zermatt, and as an added bonus is traffic-free. There are plenty of off-snow activities with a sports centre, the highest revolving restaurant in the world (3500m) and some good designer ski shops. Après-ski is fine, but restaurants can be a bit below par, as well as a bit expensive.

Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 28-Nov-2014)
The unseasonably mild weather continued this week across Switzerland and was accompanied for most by warm sunshine and scattered clouds.
As a result of the climate, several resorts have had to postpone their opening dates and will not open this weekend. These include Adelboden, Arosa and Lenzerheide. In addition, the slopes above Wengen (0/25cm) will not open this weekend and Verbier (0/60cm) will be offering more limited terrain than last weekend.
On Thursday 27th, skiing was limited to the high-altitude glacier resorts. Zermatt (5/155cm) had 110km of open pistes and Saas-Fee (14/230cm) was reporting 10 open pistes. Riding was also available on the glacier at Gstaad (0/100cm), although no resort runs are open.
Samnaun (0/100cm) did however open for the season on Thursday, with three of the links to Ischgl prepared and open.
Unfortunately the mild weather is forecast to continue throughout the weekend, so pre-season snowmaking is likely to remain on hold.
European Weather Outlook
Europe on the whole had quite a cloudy day on Thursday 27th November with Austria enjoying the most sunshine with less cloudy spells. Italy and Switzerland were both quite cloudy and there were reports of light rain fall in Italy. France was particularly cloudy too but there were reports of sunny intervals being seen. The weekend is expected to be a mixture of sunshine and cloud across all of our featured countries but thicker clouds are predicted to move in by Sunday, which could bring fresh snow.
There is currently a warm climate sweeping across Europe at the moment and it is causing a few problems for many resorts that are planning to open this coming weekend. Resorts in Austria, Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland who are scheduled to open this weekend will almost certainly be delayed as their snow preparations are being hindered by the high temperatures. There is a potential for fresh snow this weekend as mentioned earlier so hopefully that will occur and assist the resorts who are planning on opening soon.
