St Moritz Resort Info
St Moritz is probably the most famous of all the Swiss resorts. It is posh, glamorous and very expensive. It's a place to be seen in but, if you're really picky, you can ski as well. The sun shines nearly all year-round and the snow record is pretty good. The town isn't that attractive, with less-than-beautiful buildings often spoiling some great scenery. There are countless things to do off the snow, while cross-country skiers are truly spoiled with lovely tracks around the frozen lake. It's difficult to access by car and the transfer times are hefty (Zurich is 200km away). Many prefer to take the train, but that still takes a fair while. The resort prides itself on having hosted the Olympics twice in the last century. Its most well-known off-snow activity is the world-famous Cresta Run – still unavailable to women. The nightlife, top-class hotels and restaurants are major pulls, although you may need to extend your mortgage to cover the bills…
There are a massive 350km of piste to explore, but it's fragmented and rather poorly linked. Many of the runs in the main domains are easy and rather similar. The 'in-crowd' seem to like it like that - not too strenuous and perfect for posing. Beginners don't receive too much attention, while advanced skiers will have to travel around to get the best St Moritz has to offer. There is some good off-piste to be had on the face of the Piz Nair when snow cover is adequate. The lift system has been upgraded, but over-reliance on small cable cars means that queues can often develop.
Overall, it's a venue not solely based around skiing. People come to St. Moritz all year round. The skiing is ideally suited to the clientele, as are the prices. However, if you are working on a budget, or want a massive variety of skiing, St. Moritz isn't exactly tailored to you.

Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 26-Feb-2017)
Thursday 23rd February was a day of hazy sunshine and increasing clouds as The Swiss Alps heads towards much needed fresh snowfall. Conditions have been very spring like this week with warm temperatures and lots of strong sunshine. Today on piste snow was a mix of spring slush and well-groomed pistes in the high altitude resorts. The skiing is still good from the mid-mountain and higher, although the lower slopes are starting to show the effects of high traffic and spring like weather.
The coming change was evident today by the number of lenticular clouds which could be seen forming atop the high peaks in Switzerland. Starting late this evening cold air and snow falls will continue into tomorrow, bringing light to moderate snow falls to all our featured resorts. The weekend will be sunny and spring like again, however a significant weather shift is forecast next week. Heavy snowfalls are expected from Tuesday the 28th.
European Weather Outlook
It has been a tough week all over the Alps recently with heavy rain, warm temperatures and strong sunshine all negatively impacting snow quality. However, a change is coming and the early signs of its arrival are visible already. Cloud cover will gently increase throughout today as much needed fresh snow and cold temperatures move in tonight. Tomorrow will see cloudy snowy conditions all over the Alps with light to moderate snowfalls expected. The freezing level will quickly drop which means it will snow all the way down to the valley floor.
Beyond this sudden change Saturday will bring slightly warmer temperatures by the afternoon with Sunday being a mostly sunny day. A large snow storm is currently is forecast to bring very heavy snowfalls to the Alps next week. It would seem winter is returning from its brief summer vacation, and not a moment too soon.
In the Pyrenees a mostly sunny weekend is ahead, no significant snowfall is expected before Tuesday 28th.
In far north Scandinavia a slight change to the normal pattern of dull overcast weather. Moderate snowfalls are expected over the next few days. Powder days are unlikely but certainly enough to create excellent on piste conditions.
