Since our last report, In a nutshell, we have had yet more snow and mild temperatures still. We have been skiing fresh powder continuously for the last 7 days, thanks to three substantial snowfalls since our last report. As ever, the season changes gear on the first week of December and more lifts and areas open up for skiing, giving us 218km and 84 runs so far. Down to 2,400m the snow is outstanding and deep, below that it is man-made. Zermatt is fortunate in having the biggest piste vertical of any resort; the powder skiing is currently excellent from 3,880m down to 2,400m – around 1,500 vertical metres of fresh tracks. BTW, if you would like to check our comparison to other resorts, there’s a good listing of current conditions on Skiresort.info.
