Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 02-May-2016)
Following snow accumulation of up to 40cm earlier this week, the sun returned to the sky on Thursday 28th April. Temperatures have been low and slopes have been quiet, meaning there was some great skiing on offer for those that ventured out.
The best conditions can currently be found at Engleberg (5/375cm); the resort received 30cm of new snow on the 27th April, providing some great skiing being served by 9 running lifts. Elsewhere, Pontresina (15/24cm) remains open despite limited cover of snow in places.
Looking to the weekend, the resorts that are still open should see some cloud with the chance of the odd snow shower. Temperatures are forecasted to be around freezing level at mid-mountain, and Friday should see it get as low as -4C in Zermatt (0/220cm).
European Weather Outlook
The Alps is still very much in the grips of winter currently, with fresh snow having fallen across much of Europe over the past week. Further falls are forecast across many regions of the Alps over the coming days, although totals are expected to be much more moderate than previous falls. However, the freezing level is expected to rise over the weekend, with rain falling across the lowers slopes of many resorts as a result. Temperatures will look to return to seasonal norms during the early part of next week, with the sun also set to make an appearance.
