Your Mountain Exposure weather forecast and skiing tips w/c March 09th, 2020
You have chosen a good week to come to Zermatt. Sunday will be sunny and mild, however the wind will strengthen in the afternoon, leading to possible upper lift closures, I would not recommend going to Italy tomorrow!
Monday will be equally sunny, there will be less wind, but do keep an eye on the lift information using the links below in this email.
Tuesday will be mainly sunny, however a weather front will approach from the West, leading to a snowy and much colder Wednesday and Thursday. This should clear for Friday which could well be a good powder day.
Temperatures will be mild tomorrow and Monday with 10° in the village and 0° at 3,000m; dropping by 10 degrees as of Tuesday.
All the upper slopes have good wintery chalky snow, with some but not many harder patches. The lower slopes and the runs back to resort get icy and hard toward the end of the day.
If you like bumps, most of the yellow (i.e. double-black) runs are now open, Mittelritz N° 30 in particular is very good with soft grippy powder and flat bumps.
N.B. Please be advised that all the pistes back to the village are challenging, crowded reds which can be quite hard-packed, so taking the lift down can be a sensible option. In particular the Untere National / Howette run (N°1 then 3 on the Sunnegga side) is very tough. If you are not an expert we strongly recommend against taking it, the final section is a steep and narrow wall of black run difficulty and dangerous when crowded. The alternative N°2 then 2a (Riedweg) run is slightly easier but also has a steep section in the middle, and finishes with a long narrow path/road. If you are hesitant, you would be better off taking the Sunnegga Express back down.
