50 cm of snow has fallen on the slopes in Zermatt. Snow heights: Top 220cm, middle 144cm, bottom 48cm. With this exceptional snow base the resort runs will easily last through to Easter. These last snowfalls were highly localized, giving us by far the best skiing conditions in the Alps. Here is a review from the Daily Telegraph:

"Zermatt has had some fantastic snowfall lately. A Ski Club of Great Britain representative in the resort was woken by the sound of avalanche control this week before enjoying some good powder. The area is extensive and there is something to keep skiers and boarders of all abilities entertained. Cervinia is only a few lifts and runs away and there’s been knee-deep powder here too this week.

Zermatt is one of the prettiest resorts in Switzerland and the famous Matterhorn provides an impressive backdrop. It’s renowned for some of the best mountain cuisine too, so if you’re a powder hound and a foodie, this may well be the resort for you."
