Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 23-Nov-2014)
Many of the Swiss resorts teams have been reporting light snowfall with the occasional large drop over the past two weeks so many resorts are really starting to take shape. Thursday 20th November saw plenty of sunshine and nice fresh temperatures across Switzerland.
Winter is starting to make its mark as lots of resorts are opening for weekend skiing this coming weekend. Grimentz, Flims/Laax, St Moritz, Verbier, Wengen and Zinal are all planning on offering skiing this weekend.
There are also resorts currently open for their full season but only up on the glaciers as they wait for more snow cover on their resort runs.
Zermatt (10/160cm) is offering glacial skiing and had a total of 22 lifts in operation on Thursday to coincide with the excellent sunshine. The resort team are also reporting powdery conditions off the piste but do take care as you leave the glacier as there may be rocky patches with lighter cover.
There’s good news for those planning on skiing Switzerland this weekend as lots of sunshine is being forecast so don’t forget to take sunglasses to enjoy the bright weather.
