Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 01-Mar-2017)
Monday 27th February was a mostly stable and spring like day in Switzerland. Last week’s snowfalls have lightly refreshed the pistes and current on snow conditions are very enjoyable, although far more spring like then we would normally expect for February. Clouds will increase later this evening as Switzerland heads into a week of much needed snowfall. Tuesday will see widespread moderate to heavy snowfalls at all of our featured Swiss resorts. Expect powder and storm skiing conditions to remain all week before another round of heavy snowfalls over the weekend.
European Weather Outlook
It is set to be a complicated week for The Alps. Much needed heavy snowfalls will start late on Monday (27th) night and remain all day Tuesday, tapering off by early Wednesday morning. The heaviest snowfalls will be in France and Italy, but no matter where you are skiing in The Alps there will be fresh snow. Strong winds at altitude are forecast, so some ski areas may experience limited lift operations at times. It will be an excellent but challenging week of skiing ahead for the Alps in what can only be described as varied and complex season so far.
This weekend may see another round of heavy snowfalls, mostly on the southern and eastern sides of the Alps. Check back Thursday for a more comprehensive overview of upcoming conditions.
Elsewhere, snow is expected in the Pyrenees on Thursday, but not as heavy as what we will see in The Alps. Tuesday will see light to moderate snowfalls - Not enough to call a powder day but certainly enough to make on-piste conditions excellent.
Further north in Scandinavia, another typical weather week lies ahead. Light snow falls and fairly dull overcast skies will be the dominate feature. Temperatures will remain slightly below freezing creating most soft snow conditions.
