Switzerland 'to receive most snow in Europe'
The Ski Club of Great Britain reports that Swiss resorts are likely to receive the "most snow in Europe" in the coming days. Snow is anticipated to drift down across Switzerland reaching depths of more than ten centimetres.
It is advised that the best skiing is to be had on the upper slopes as lower runs at some resorts have thinning snow bases.
Nonetheless, those taking ski holidays in Zermatt will be delighted to know that "excellent" conditions have been reported on the upper slopes at the resort with depths of between forty and two hundred centimetres measured.
All of Zermatt's three ski areas rise above three thousand one hundred metres in height and fabulous scenery including the iconic Matterhorn can be viewed from all slopes.
Meanwhle, the Ski Club noted that American resorts "continue to storm ahead" thanks to "continuous" snowfalls. Californian resorts in particular have benefitted from recent weather conditions.
