A slight change in weather today for Switzerland with clouds appearing over most resorts for the first time this week. The place to be is around the Matterhorn this weekend, the high altitude resorts are still holding cold dry snow.
Thursday the 1st of December was a beautiful day across the French Alps, with clear blue skies and glorious sunshine for most. Still only a handful of open ski areas, but this is all set to change this weekend: Serre Chevalier (0/145cm), Cauterets (35/50cm) and Font Romeu (10/30cm) in the Pyrenees are among the resorts set to provide winter sports. Of the open resorts, Tignes (42/155cm) and Val d’Isere (5/150cm) are offering some great skiing, along with Montgenevre (70/130cm), which was lucky enough to get some new snow last week.
Following the sun and blue skies that have been the predominant theme in the Austrian Alps of late, Thursday 1st December brought a change in the weather, with many resorts shrouded in the cloud, and visibility being fairly limited. In the Obergurgl region, Solden (10/126cm) benefited from 2cm of fresh snow overnight, which has provided some nice on piste conditions up high. Nearby at Kaunertal (48/82cm), it was a bitterly cold day, where the thermometer was reading around -4C. The resort was running 7/16 lifts, and like Solden, the best skiing could be found on the upper slopes. Elsewhere, in the Ski Welt, operations continue to expand at both Kitzbuhel (30/50cm) and Kirchberg (30/50cm). 20 pistes are now groomed and available for skiing, and the weather should allow for snow making to continue for the time being. Over the weekend the sun should return for most resorts and allow for some great riding. Hintertux (25/105cm) may be one of the exceptions to this, where the cloud may continue into Friday 2nd December, and provide the odd flake of snow at times.
Thursday 1st of December was a fairly uninspired day for skiing in Switzerland. The weather has changed slightly bringing overcast or high wispy clouds and hazy sunshine. With no new snow to report and some resorts looking pretty bare ahead of weekend skiing it may seem a little dire. Not all is lost however, there is some great snow to be found at the high altitude resorts around the Matterhorn. Saas Fee (10/135cm) and Zermatt (110cm) are open with great piste options. The weather forecast is for a continuation of sunny and dry weather well into next week.
