Heavy snow conditions dominate much of Switzerland, as they have much of this week – some resorts have seen upwards of 100cm since the start of the week.
Conditions in the Jungfrau region offer some promising riding opportunities for those prepared to brave the wind, snow and reduced visibility. Though many runs remain closed, up 20cm of snow has fallen across Murren
(30/128cm) and Wengen
Significant snow was expected across the four valleys, with up to 50cm expected in Verbier
(110/145cm) and Nendaz
(70/100cm). This blanket of fresh snow on top of what has already fallen should provide vast opportunities for skiing fresh lines during their upcoming opening weekend. Though, as with much of the rest of Switzerland, and the Alps in general, remain cautious as potential avalanche conditions abound.
Unfortunately, lifts in some resorts are once again temporarily inoperable, specifically Gstaad
(50/270cm) and Abelboden / Lenk (18/100cm).
