Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 24-Apr-2014)
Good spring snow can be found across our featured Swiss resorts. It’s been fairly cool this week with no significant fresh snow.
Perhaps the biggest news is the weather forecast, with almost a metre of snow expected at many central Swiss resorts like Saas Fee (15/293cm). Spring conditions dominate there at the moment but loads of snow is expected over the weekend and it should transform their ski area.
The same can be said for Zermatt (0/250cm). The skiing on the upper slopes was great on Thursday 24th April and the fresh snow that’s coming from Saturday 26th April onwards should further enhance the skiing and give them a very wintry end to the season.
European Weather Outlook
Cloudy skies will dominate over the weekend and next week in Europe. For skiers this is good news though as fresh snow is forecast. The greatest snowfall is predicted to hit resorts in Switzerland and Italy, with well over half a metre expected at the likes of Verbier, Zermatt, Saas Fee, Cervinia and Gressoney-la-Trinite. While less snow is expected to hit Austria and France, there should still be enough to provide some excellent late season skiing conditions.
