Snow Conditions in Switzerland (09 December 2013)
A number of Swiss resorts opened over the weekend, either for weekend riding or daily for skiing and snowboarding. This has increased the spread of resorts open for skiing in Switzerland although the conditions are overall similar; the snow cover is very good due to the excellent early season snowfall although it has been sunny over the last week and areas of high traffic are becoming polished. Expect good skiing on firmly packed runs, with the best conditions available on the upper slopes.
Saas Fee (25/275cm) reports the deepest snow base in Switzerland on their upper slopes, although Andermatt (37/200cm) and the Gstaad area (5/240cm) report over two metres of snow high up, while Zermatt (40/190cm) is not that far off two metres.
The skies are forecast to remain bright and sunny all week across Switzerland, with mid-mountain temperatures remaining around freezing.
