We believe that this is the most comprehensive and accurate snow report for Zermatt that there is. The data are sourced from the SLF (Swiss Avalanche Research Institute) measuring stations, and from its Cervinia counterpart. The current snow conditions are below, you can also click on the relevant years to see the what your chosen week was like in the past. And you can download our fully detailed spreadsheet of this season’s snowfall and depths.
Zermatt is the only ski resort in the world where the skiing never closes! The summer ski area is open as usual, and new this year, the cable car joining the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise to the Italian cable car station at Testa Grigia is running. This means that pedestrians can go all the way from Zermatt to Cervinia and back, across the highest border crossing in the Alps! Or you can do a shorter trip and get off at Testa Grigia, enjoy the spectacular views and have an Italian lunch in the Rifugio Guide del Cervino.
With yet another 30cm of fresh snow we have had some glorious powder skiing – which is very typical of April. The Sunnegga and Gornergrat areas closed today, but the Matterhorn side remains open until May 1st, while the Cervinia area will run until May 7th.
These last two weeks of March and the first week of April have given us perfect winter powder all the way down to the village. Cool temperatures are preserving the snow, and on all the north facing runs (which are the majority in Zermatt) we have had great conditions both on and off-piste.
Winter is back full-time: it snowed again yesterday with a substantial 30cm. The snow base is quickly catching up with its usual level. The pistes are superb, and we now also have deep and epic off-piste conditions.
It started snowing last Wednesday with 60cm, and continued on Friday with another 80cm. And yet more is expected tonight before the clouds lift tomorrow.
Once the pistes are secured for avlanches, the skiing will be epic!
It snowed again yesterday, 10-20cm, which together with the last snowfall three days ago has made the piste conditions very enjoyable.
There were even some off-piste tracks to be had in the wonderful Furggsattel bowl and on the Italian side, as you can see below:
The last two weeks have been spring like, with delightfully warm temperatures and a lot of sun. It snowed yesterday, with the greatest depth on the slopes connecting with the Italian side. Piste conditions are immaculate, the sun is not yet high and strong enough to change the snow and for the coming week cooler temperatures are forecast, which will help keep the recent snowfall fresh.
