Zermatt Resort Info
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 10-Mar-2014)
Spring conditions dominate across Switzerland. It was a sunny and warm weekend at all our featured resorts and people were enjoying the excellent spring snow on offer. Higher resorts like Saas Fee (128/390cm) have a mixture of conditions, with softer spring snow lower down but more wintry snow higher up. There’s plenty of it though so the mild and sunny forecast is of no concern.
It’s a similar story at Davos (67/138cm). The Ski Club leader based there spoke of excellent skiing on Sunday 9th March and lovely weather. The resort has plenty of snow and all the runs down to Klosters (45/138cm) are all open too. The mild and sunny forecast this week shouldn’t affect the amount of runs open.
European Weather Outlook
The weather is forecast to remain mostly sunny across the European resorts this week, although there is some cloudier weather expected on Thursday 13th March. This could deliver fresh snow to Austria and Germany. The temperature is expected to rise for the start of next week with the freezing level expected to sit around 3,000m on Monday 17th March.
If you are after fresh snow then the Scandinavian resorts could be your best bet, as cloudy and snowy weather is forecast next weekend. Oppdal in Norway could receive almost 60cm of new snow by Tuesday 18th March.
