@moseyp for high season try Swiss Ski School Saas Fee Eskimo Saas Fee Optimum Saas Fee Worth a try as they all employ foreign instructors.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Unlikely to get work for the whole season at this late stage .High season in February is more realistic

I do think people priorities are strange at time.For the life of me what does it matter whether the resort has masses of nightlife or a few. When you are out for a season you will become a regular at one or two frequented by other seasonaires, Saas Fee has enough such places. Miles and miles of same same slopes or being situated in a wonderful arena of glaciated 4000metre peaks for 4months usually skiing powdery pistes all season not a few weeks,Saas Fee will keep most happy
Then you'll get to see more forums.

I'm not a big fan of Wengen either. It's picture perfect alright. But it's not very high. So snow coverage can be an issue. The "trains as part of the lift network", while charming, can be frustrating once the novelty worn off. No issue with snow coverage ,Wengen has some of the most extensive snow making anywhere thanks to the huge investments by the mega rich Jungfraubahn.One reason we enjoyed superb pistes last Xmas before any of the natural snow arrived in abundance.The Lauberhorn piste from top to bottom(1290m) was open including many other long runs.
And post your own questions...

This morning it was great Spring conditions pm with the warm weather snow was firm to Holenstein late afternoon .Certainly not dreadful snow right to the bottom which is a testament to the very good snow making and piste preparation all season
which other snowHeads love to answer.

Twood war- Not sure high skiing will give you better snow conditions in a season which has lacked precipitation Wengen's pistes have been better than most all season due to the extensive snow making. Example the Lauberhorn piste is in wonderful shape.Cold weather has preserved the snow base down to resort level
You know it makes sense.

Bettmeralp over 1800 metres with skiing to 3000 meters and a great snow record always seems to get more than its fair share of snow I would say no problems at Easter Skied through the Aletsch area mid April 2015 on the way down from the Jungfrau loads of snow

The skiing here is very underrated,lots of variation and really good off piste opportunities when the conditions are right .If you only want to ski black slopes then maybe not for you. Jungfrau region has wonderful long runs with lots of variation with some of the greatest views anywhere

Emmaski Not really fair to pass comment on queues this Xmas as the snow line was unusually high and no runs to the valley or nursery slopes in the village open so the result everybody had to go up to ski Once there the skiing wasn't bad at all compared to many resorts this last Xmas and New Year
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

I don't work for Jungfrau railways but I do know that the skiing in Wengen, in what has been a difficult Winter in the Alps has been good this season considering the lack of natural snowfall(although it is dumping snow today) T/bars are not only a Wengen item ,I know Saas Fee,Zermatt etc etc have them still .I think they are fun they not very long! The Ski School brats you refer to are mainly local Swiss children who are having fun in ski school and not too many this week as ski school is quiet at the moment,Next week is high season and a ski school train will operate. The snow cannons near the village can only operate when we have cold weather this winter that has been in short supply but they have run at every available opportunity hence we have been skiing down to the village since the New Year Wengen is still very special with the greatest views in the Alps and certainly I hope it can remain one of the view traditional ski resorts left in the Alps and not develop in the same way as Verbier or many of the French resorts
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

I have to disagree with some of your comments about the lift company Due to continuous investment we have snow making facilities which are second to none,even today after horrendous rain yesterday we are still able to ski down to low altitudes such as Grund in Grindlewald.New lines are being constantly added or upgraded for snow making every year One of the reasons why the skiing here was better than other places over Xmas and New Year The lists have been upgraded except for the odd few that you mention, Eiger Nordwang,Wixi all new 6 pack chair lifts etc etc. Using the Mannlichen cable car from Wengen you are on the slopes in 10ms if you don't wan't to wait for the train You mention that you are staying in Lauterbrunnen,where you also have a relatively new Cable Car to the ski area in Murren.

Despite the much improved snow making facilities ,the resort still seems to make a mess of the closing dates for the Wengen ski area Each year Mannlichen closes a week before Kleine Scheidegg.Next season it will close on the 7th April,a limited amount of lifts and pistes will run on KS until the following weekend. Personally I feel the resort should try and remain fully open until the middle of April and get the message out,that there is some great spring skiing to be had.At the moment Hotels and tour operators close more or less when the Mannlichen shuts .
