The resort has been busy preparing new runs. The wonderful Kumme run from Rothorn down to Tuftern is now open, as is the black Upper National run. On the Schwarzee side the super easy Aroleid blue is now also open. A very nice 30cm of fresh snow fell on the Furggsattel bowl (3,400-2,400m altitude) giving us great powder skiing. The weather is crisp and wonderfully sunny, while fresh snow is expected this coming mid-week.
The wonderful new Kumme lift was inaugurated just before Christmas, located in the Sunnegga / Rothorn sector, this 10 seater cabin lift has a vertical of 966m and a total length of 3.2 km. It starts near the bottom of the Tuftern run and goes all the way up to Rothorn, giving more efficient and more direct access to a number of ski slopes in this area.
It snowed 20cm yesterday, the skies cleared and we had some great powder runs. Piste conditions are excellent on the majority of slopes, however due to the temperatures being colder than usual, the lower slopes are hard with some ice patches. Nonetheless, now that the holiday crowds have gone, the skiing is wonderful.
All three mountain areas are open: Matterhorn Paradise, Gornergrat and Sunnegga. The snow on-piste is perfect crisp grippy powdery winter snow, temperatures are relatively mild and the sun is shining. The image below is taken from the Riffelberg webcam live feed on 16.12.2020
