We had the best powder day of the season last Monday, it was better than heliskiing! The much deeper than average snow depth has enabled Zermatt to open all its runs and practically all of the fabled yellow itineraries – marked and secured runs which are not groomed. One of the greatest is Mittelritz (N° ) from Hohtälli to Gant. 1,000 vertical metres of soft bumps.

Many more mountain restaurants have now opened for take-aways on their terrace: Zum See, Blatten, Vrony’s, Fluhalp and the Findlerhof to name some of the top gourmet ones.

Cervinia will remain closed until March 5th, however with fine lunching and great skiing on the Zermatt side we’re not missing it that much. And we have the great good fortune that our lifts are allowed to operate. Carpe Skiem!

It snowed non-stop for three full days last week, and then the weather cleared on Sunday to give us one of the finest powder skiing days ever. The total amount that fell was 150cm, on top of an already good base. There is 180% more snow in Zermatt than the long term average level.

The resort has been busy preparing new runs. The wonderful Kumme run from Rothorn down to Tuftern is now open, as is the black Upper National run. On the Schwarzee side the super easy Aroleid blue is now also open. A very nice 30cm of fresh snow fell on the Furggsattel bowl (3,400-2,400m altitude) giving us great powder skiing. The weather is crisp and wonderfully sunny, while fresh snow is expected this coming mid-week.

The wonderful new Kumme lift was inaugurated just before Christmas, located in the Sunnegga / Rothorn sector, this 10 seater cabin lift has a vertical of 966m and a total length of 3.2 km. It starts near the bottom of the Tuftern run and goes all the way up to Rothorn, giving more efficient and more direct access to a number of ski slopes in this area.

It snowed 20cm yesterday, the skies cleared and we had some great powder runs. Piste conditions are excellent on the majority of slopes, however due to the temperatures being colder than usual, the lower slopes are hard with some ice patches. Nonetheless, now that the holiday crowds have gone, the skiing is wonderful.

The summer ski area on the glacier at the top of the Matterhorn Express is open every day, as is the link to Italy (for skiers only). Skiing is open from 08:00 to 13:00, the last ascent for skiers from the village is at 11:20 (12:20 from August 20th onward).

In summer the snow conditions are similar to spring skiing, which means hard slopes early in the morning and slush in the afternoon. Between 10:00 and 12:00 the snow is lovely delicious spring corn. The views from the pistes are amazing, you can of course see the Matterhorn, but also the Mont-Blanc (the highest mountain in the Alps) and all the way to the Monte Viso above Turin.

70 cm of fresh snow!

The pistes are in great condition, with almost all of them open. Although we haven’t had much snowfall since the beginning of the year we still managed to find a bit of powder off-piste here and there. The weather has been spectacularly sunny and mild throughout, ideal skiing conditions.

Yesterday and today were simply glorious, with blue skies and streaming sunshine. With all the snowfall we have had, pistes are powdery and soft, the off-piste however was affected by the wind. Tomorrow Friday will see a weather front come through, bringing fresh snow. Thereafter the whole New Year week will benefit from stable anti-cyclonic conditions. Perfect skiing!

The last few days leading up to Christmas have seen turbulent weather with 100cm total snowfall since our last report. The higher lifts have recently been closed because of wind, but the skiing on the middle and lower slopes is outstanding with soft powdery snow on all runs and the off-piste is also good. It will snow again up to Christmas Eve, and then the skies will clear leading to perfect conditions on Christmas Day and thereafter.
