We have had a fresh snowfall of 20cm on the upper pistes. All five ski areas (Sunnegga, Gornergrat, Matterhorn, Cervinia and Valtournenche) are open and linked. Given the warm temperatures over the last week, there is no longer snow in the village, however the upper slopes have above average snow depth (210cm at the top) and the skiing conditions are superb, with 185km of open runs, 1,800m of vertical and powdery winter snow, Zermatt continues to offer the best skiing currently in the Alps.

So much snow has fallen (90cm at the top, with a snow base of 130cm)) that the link to Italy is now open and you can ski all the way down to Plan Maison. The wonderful Ventina run is also open down to the cable car at Cime Bianche. And more snow is forecast for next week – it's a great start to the season.

It is currently snowing very hard and will continue to do so until tomorrow. As has been the case over the last few years, these autumnal snowfalls come from the south and Zermatt is in the blessed position of getting the lion's share. We already have 80cm of fresh snow at the Plateau Rosa (where the skiing is open) and 40cm at Gornergrat. We will update you with the final amounts as soon as the snowstorm passes. It's very exciting!
