Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 22-Apr-2014)
14 of our featured 30 Swiss resorts are now closed for the season, including the likes of Wengen, Grindelwald and Arosa.
The remaining open resorts all received fresh snow over the weekend, with up to 50cm falling over the course of the Easter weekend in some places. Saas Fee (25/402cm) has fantastic conditions on its upper mountain, with a base depth that’s increased a lot recently. Powder can be found high up if you know where to look. Lower runs are more spring-like but skiing is still possible down into the town itself.
Davos (3/140cm) is still open too, although skiing is limited to the Parsenn area. Again, the snow over the weekend improved conditions and the highest runs have some great skiing on offer.
European Weather Outlook
The forecast is for cloudy skies across the major European nations this week and over next weekend. The freezing level is supposed to rise to around 3,000m this week before dropping back down to around 2,000m next week. This could result in wet weather for many areas this week following by snow conditions on the higher slopes next week.
