Zermatt Snow Report – 4th January 2017

It is here! The first snowfall of 2017. In town there was a fresh layer of snow, turning Zermatt Town back into the winter wonderland that we all know all and love. After a few more flurries at the start of lessons today the clouds parted to reveal the Matterhorn surrounded once again by a snow-covered ski area.
On the Glacier there has been a good 5 – 10cm of fresh snow and in town a healthy 3cm. This might not mean that you need to get your “fatboy” skis out of storage just yet but if you are looking for some fantastic pistes to ski then look no further.
You are now able to ski comfortably from the very top all the way to the bottom of town with good snow the whole way. A meager 2278m vertical drop over 10-20km of piste (depending on route taken).
With more snow predicted over the next couple of days,  it could be a good time to pack your bags and head out for a last minute trip to Zermatt!

Zermatt Snow Report – 27th December 2016

The dominant high pressure across the Alps has meant very little fresh snow of late. Despite this, conditions on piste in Zermatt remain remarkably good.

A dusting of snow on Christmas day has freshened things up with some great conditions up high on the  Gornergrat and Trockener Steg area. The snow cannons continue on full blast helping out the lower slopes which are all open all the way back down to the village.

As always, conditions are best in the morning so our advise is to get up early and make the most of the morning corduroy on piste before things start to firm up in the afternoon.

Zermatt Snow Report – 12th November 2016

Powder Day in November!

snow conditions Zermatt

After three days of heavy snow, the clouds finally cleared for what must be some of the best conditions we have seen in November in recent years! The Klein Matterhorn area is open with loads of snow already on the Furggsattel pistes. Thanks to the new snow some of the pistes down to Furgg were able to open this weekend, with excellent powdery conditions on piste. There are still plenty of rocks lurking under the snow, so best wait for the next dump before venturing off piste

Snow Conditions ZermattBelow Furgg remains closed but some promising looking mounds are starting to appear around the snow cannons, hopefully we’ll be able to ski down to Furi before too long. The Sunnegga and Gornergrat areas remain closed for the moment.
