    Zermatt skiing

    Zermatt, according to some reporters, is as near as anywhere to perfection, so long as you are an intermediate or advanced skier. With vast and varied skiing that extends via a link with Cervinia into Italy, along with awesome scenery, Zermatt really is a great resort. The only downsides: a lack of choice for beginners and a bit of a trek to the lifts at times.

    Zermatt ski resort

    With amazing restaurants both on and off the mountain, a beautiful town that is traffic free apart from the electric taxis and great nightlife to suit all tastes, life down in resort isn't too shabby either. Add to this some great accommodation and good shopping and its easy to see why Zermatt is often described as "the perfect ski holiday destination". Only downside: as with a lot of Switzerland, it's not cheap.

    Snow Overview - Switzerland  (snow news updated 05-Mar-2015)

    Following the brief mild blip on Sunday, new snow has brought a return to some excellent powder conditions across Switzerland. The last of the snow was clearing through on Thursday morning, leaving behind sunny skies but also some very high winds, touching 100mph at altitude in the south of the country. Zermatt (30/270cm) was one of the resorts worst affected by the high winds, resulting in only 19 of the 54 lifts being able to run on Thursday 5th March. Saas Fee (90/310cm), St Moritz (65/154cm) and Flims/Laax (40/330cm) also suffered from high winds, with lift closures reported in the upper ski areas. Once the winds subside as is forecast, some great skiing will be on offer at these resorts. Lower winds and clearing skies resulted in some great skiing in the north of the country following loads of new snow. Davos (65/200cm) and Klosters (65/200cm) both have seen lots of powder and Ski Club Leader’s in both resorts have reported some fantastic off piste conditions. Similar reports have been coming out of the Bernese Oberland, particularly at Adelboden (58/130cm) following 27cm of new snow on Thursday and across the Jungfrau Region. Grindelwald (20/210cm) was the country’s snowiest spot, picking up 45cm of powder, with Murren (90/230cm) not far behind with 36cm of new snow. Sunny skies are forecast to take charge over the weekend so some amazing skiing should be on offer across the country, especially as the winds drop. The sun is expected to continue through the start of next week, with temperatures rising to a touch above freezing at mid-mountain level.

    European Weather Outlook

    A settled spell of weather is finally set to arrive in the Alps, bringing sunny skies, light winds and hopefully some great skiing weather. Temperatures are set to rise over the weekend, with freezing levels nudging above 2,000m. Therefore expect some softening of the lower and south facing slopes, but not too much snowmelt. It is certainly setting up to be a fantastic weekend. Bright sunshine is also expected for the Pyrenees, making a welcome change following the huge snowfalls during February. The freezing level is set to rise to 2,500m so again expect some spring-like conditions on the lower and south facing slopes. Very heavy snow is forecast for Bulgaria, with possibly as much as a metre landing on the upper slopes. Some rain may fall on the lowest slopes on Friday, but with the freezing level dropping to 500m by Saturday, snow will again fall at all levels. The weather is then expected to clear on Monday – hopefully leading to a sunny week in which to enjoy the powder. Fairly mixed weather is expected over the weekend in Scandinavia, with the possibility of sunny breaks but also some rain/snow showers for all our featured resorts. More settled and bright weather is expected for the new week, particularly in Norway. The rollercoaster that is the Scottish weather is set to continue this weekend. Mild conditions are forecast to move in, raising freezing levels before they drop back down again on Sunday. Some new snow is expected, but this is likely to be limited to the upper slopes and it is possible on Saturday that rain will fall at all levels. High winds are also set to be an issue.
