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 18-Dec-2014)

It was a very mixed picture on Thursday 18th in the Swiss Alps. Up to 30cm of fresh snow fell on Wednesday and overnight, but warm temperatures brought rain up to 2,500m for most resorts during Thursday. At altitude some good amounts of new snow will have accumulated, but lower down much of yesterday’s fall will be washed away. The greatest amount of snow fell in the Bernese Oberland, at resorts such as Gstaad (0/65cm), Wengen (0/25cm) and Crans-Montana (5/40cm). However due to Thursday’s rain, only very limited skiing was available at these resorts and heavy piste conditions were prevalent below 2,500m. The best skiing during the week has been at altitude, with the pick of the conditions at Zermatt (5/95cm) and Saas-Fee (25/190cm) up at altitude. New snow should improve the piste conditions for the weekend, but resort runs may become icy once the forecast cooler weather arrives on Saturday. After a warm and mostly sunny Friday, Saturday should bring much colder weather and the potential for some light snowfall, especially in the north of Switzerland.

European Weather Outlook

The weather across Europe is set to be predominantly sunny as we move into next week. Some clouds could deliver fresh snow at the start of the weekend but this will mostly be in Andorra, Austria, Germany and Switzerland. This will not be enough to dramatically enhance the overall riding conditions but fresh snow is still a nice thing to receive. Next week will then be predominantly sunny with the freezing level rising to over 3,000m for Tuesday 23rd December before plummeting again to around 1,000m for Christmas. There is good news for Christmas too as further fresh snowfall is forecast on Christmas Day or Boxing Day at most European resorts. Norway and Sweden are forecast a different week to most of Europe though, with fresh snow predicted on most days. The Swedish resort of Salen may be the exception here though as less snow may land at this resort. The Scottish resorts should see a similarly cloudy week to the Scandinavian resorts although rain may result at times and strong winds are expected, which could affect lift operations. Fresh snowfall is forecast at times though, and Christmas visitors could be in for a great time with snow on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
