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 24-Nov-2014)
A mild and sunny weekend was felt by all resorts across Switzerland. Temperatures reached +10°C at mid-mountain level and are predicted to stay well above average throughout the start of the week.
Good skiing was however still available on the upper areas and glaciers of many resorts across the country. Zermatt (5/155cm) had 22 lifts open on Monday and the skiing conditions on the Plateau Rosa were great under sunny skies.
The glaciers at Saas Fee (15/237cm), Flims/Laax (0/125cm) and Engelberg (0/118cm) were also open for skiing, although it was not possible to ski back to the resort at any.
Several resorts opened a few lifts and pistes over the weekend, but will remain closed during the week. This includes Wengen (0/30cm), Andermatt (10/230cm) and Verbier (0/60cm) who all plan to open again for the weekend of 29th and 30th November.
If conditions permit many resorts, including Adelboden, Arosa, Lenzerheide and Samnaun, are scheduled to open on Saturday 29th November.
European Weather Outlook
The weekend brought high temperatures to many resorts across Europe with some seeing as high as 10C. The high temperatures are expected to continue throughout the week so do take this into account when heading out to the slopes.
The forecast across Europe this week is quite varied with Austria expecting lots of sunshine, with the odd patch of cloud early on. It should be a great week for skiing in Austria with great visibility and don’t forget the sun cream.
On the other hand a large weather front is predicted to develop over Italy, France and Switzerland and as a result each country is expecting clouds to move in over the next couple of days. This emergence of cloud cover is expected to bring light snowfall, with the glacial resorts of Italy forecast to receive the most, particularly in Cervinia with up to 7cm being predicted.
