Autumn 2014 Snow and Ski Conditions
You have an astonishing 1,000m of vertical, more than many winter resorts! All the skiing is on glaciers, there is a snow park, and you can watch the numerous national ski race teams training, then have lunch on the border with Italy. It's a great experience – have a look at this short video we made with Rowena our bookings manager and ski instructor.

As usual in April, we have had a significant snowfall: 87cm of fresh snow at the Gornergrat measuring station! Conditions have been epic, with bottomless powder and far more than enough snow to last until the close of the season on May 4th. It's well worth coming out for that last weekend of skiing. Click here to see our videos.
A lot of snow (39cm) fell over the weekend, and although conditions had not suffered at all from the warm temperatures of the previous weeks, new powder snow is always welcome. Last week had been the first week of the season when we could not find fresh tracks off-piste, so it was a pleasure for the MX team to go for an outing yesterday as you can see below.

MX Snowboarder, Telemarker and Skier on the Mittelritz in Zermatt March 24th:
The sun has been shining now for a week and the tempartures are mild, however there is so much snow (210% more than average) that this has made little impact on the skiing. Pistes are still powdery on the higher slopes, while the lower ones are very agreeably soft. The off-piste was still great on the north slopes yesterday, as the photo below shows.

After another massive amount of snowfall, the weather has stabilized and we are enjoying beautiful anticylonic blue skies which will last for a while. The snowfall total is an astonishing 745cm so far, more than ever in the living memory of local mountain guides.

This is the mother of all seasons! In the last week we have had another three snowfalls, mainly at night, and glorious sunny ski days such as you can see on the photos below, taken yesterday.
Mountain Exposure clients on the Gornergrat slopes, February 24th:
Since our last update we have had a large quantity of fresh snow, amounting to180cm. The season's total snowfall so far is 624cm! Conditions continue to be exceptional both on and off piste, and with this depth of snow the slopes will remain perfect well beyond the end of the season (in May). If you haven't come to Zermatt yet, this is the year to do so.
Huts by the Tuftern run on February 17th:
Another three snowfalls have given us us a total of 95cm of fresh snow, and a snow depth of 285cm at the top, with 81cm in the village. Snow depths are 168% above the long term average for this time of year. All runs, including all the freeride yellows (double diamond blacks) are open and heliskiing has already started. Definitely the best conditions in the world!

Another huge snowfall, with 50cm on the Matterhorn side, 25cm on the Gornergrat area. Zermatt has been consistently getting more snow than anywhere else in the Alps, snow depths are currently 147% higher than the long-term average. The Stockhorn and Triftji freeride area has opened already, and all conditions are outstanding.
