Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 20-Apr-2014)
It has been a mixed week for Swiss resorts, depending on which side of the country you are looking at. For example, eastern resorts such as Davos (0/141cm) and St Moritz (20/140cm) received around 10cm earlier this week but since then the sun has re-emerged. In the west it’s been a predominantly sunny week.
Verbier (10/147cm) has good spring snow on its mountains, but unlike the resorts in the east there hasn’t been any fresh snow for a while. This could change this weekend though as more unsettled weather is expected to move in. Freezing levels will remain around 2,400m so fresh snow will be confined to the upper slopes, but it should improve conditions nonetheless.
European Weather Outlook
Predominantly cloudy weather is forecast across the European resorts over the Easter weekend and next week. The freezing level could drop to around 2,000m at the start of the weekend before rising back up to over 2,500m. The altitude of the slopes and the ski area will therefore dictate whether you can expect fresh snow or rain over this period.
