There was a dusting of new snow yesterday and today the skies cleared to reveal perfect winter conditions. Your humble servant went up to see for himself, and found fluffy fresh powder snow to track. What a start to the season! The pistes are in great shape too with lovely grippy winter powder. And they're empty. November skiing is a dream, only possible in Zermatt.

The ski area now has 18km of runs, and has been extended down to Trockener Steg, with the opening of the Furggsattel Chairlift and the Theodul T-Bar and their associated pistes, which means that you can ski back to the top of the Matterhorn Express. The link to Cervinia is now also continuously open. The cold nights have enabled snow making to begin lower down, which is creating a good base for the next snowfall to settle upon. This use of man-made snow as a foundation is one of the key ways of ensuring that the pistes will remain in good conditions all the way through to the end of the season.
