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 09-Dec-2016)
No great change in conditions in Switzerland on Thursday 8th of December. Clear sunny and dry is the standard at all of the currently open resorts. The best options still remain the high altitude resorts around The Matterhorn or resorts with north facing slopes. On piste conditions are still good but becoming a mix of hard pack and loose sugar snow. New snow is desperately needed.
Looking forward, the high pressure weather trend continues. For the first time this month, however, snow is appearing in the long range forecast. Snowfalls may start by mid-December but are far more likely to start later.
European Weather Outlook
It’s been dry and sunny for most of Europe recently, and this looks set to continue for the foreseeable future. Austria and Eastern Europe could see some snow over the next week but it will be mostly dry. It’s a similar story in the Pyrenees, where sunshine is set to dominate.
