Well as the half term frenzy is drawing to a close it looks like the spring weather is already on the way. We have been lucky here in Zermatt to be feeling a little unusual warm spell. With plus 14 during the day in town, the temperatures have been quite pleasurable on the piste. Which as you Zermatt regulars will know is quite a nice treat.
Zermatt is finally looking a little more white thanks to a few small dumps over the past few days. The off piste is in much better condition but i would definately stick to the marked yellow itinerary runs for the moment as the snow pack is super unstable. Avalanche risk is at a level 3 all over Switzerland but I would treat it like a level 5. Due to the minimal snow at the beginning of the season and very cold temperatures, it’s going to be pretty risky until the spring now.
The season is coming to an end with just a few weeks left but there is still snow on the hills so why not grab a bargain and head out for some super spring skiing? Here are some great discounts for spring skiing in France, you just need to sort out your travel and if you are flying why not check out our SkiFlightWizard for information on where you can fly to and fro.
Here is the latest ski report from www.J2ski.com for the week ending 30th March 2013. Spring is setting in everywhere but the snowfall last week in most countries will keep the skiing good for the next few weeks. Scotland has enjoyed a great season but unfortunately our infrastructure means accessibility has often been the problem to enjoying our own mountains.
