Zermatt Resort Info

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 04-Mar-2015)

Fluctuating freezing levels have resulted in some heavy conditions on the lower slopes of our featured Swiss resorts. The snow level touched as high as 2,000m in parts of the western Alps, but was dropping back to below 1,000m during the course of the day on Monday 2nd March. Up to 20cm of fresh snow was reported at several resorts on Monday morning, with the most settling above 2,000m owing to the milder temperatures. Some of the biggest beneficiaries were the Jungfrau Region resorts of Grindelwald (15/166cm), Murren (80/195cm) and Wengen (30/115cm), which caught 20cm by 9am, with more falling during the day. Over in the east of the country Flims/Laax (40/290cm) also picked up 20cm of new snow, although high winds prevented 10 of the resort’s 29 lifts from turning. Another resort to benefit in this region was Samnuan (45/150cm), where 15cm of new snow was recorded overnight. Unfortunately the winds were also causing issues, with only 28 of the resorts 45 lifts spinning across the linked area with Ischgl. More snow is set to fall through the remainder of Monday and continue on and off until Thursday. The precipitation is set to get lighter, but another 20-30cm is possible on top of what was falling already on Monday. A welcome return to sunshine is currently forecast for Friday.

European Weather Outlook

The heavy snow falling across the Alps on Monday is set to slowly taper off during the night into Tuesday, especially in France and western Switzerland. But lighter snow is set to fall for much of the week, potentially adding a further 20-30cm to what was falling on Monday, including in the south towards Italy. Temperatures are set to fall away throughout the week and by Thursday the freezing level may reach as low as sea level. Sunshine is currently forecast to make a welcome return on Friday, but Austria may cling on to a few snow clouds into the start of the weekend. The mild air is set to clear through the Pyrenees during Tuesday night, dropping the freezing level to around 1,000m. This should be accompanied by some nice falls of snow of between 10 and 20cm. A sunny spell of weather is then expected to begin on Thursday and last into the weekend, with temperatures set to rise above freezing once more. Settled weather is expected for Bulgaria until Thursday, before more snowclouds sweep in across the country. Initially rain may fall on the lower slopes, but by Sunday around 20cm can be expected on the upper slopes, with perhaps 10cm lower down as the freezing level drops off. A nice settled spell of weather is forecast for Scandinavia, with sunshine in the forecast for both Norway and Sweden. The skies won’t be clear all the time as patches of clouds are set to drift in from time to time, but nothing more than a dusting of snow is expected. Snow is set to continue to fall across Scotland until Tuesday before potentially the best day of the week on Wednesday. Make the most of this break in the weather as sadly a strong southwesterly flow is forecast for the end of the week and the weekend, bringing strong winds and mild temperatures.
