Snow Reports

Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Heading to Zermatt on Thursday. Weather forecast at the moment is looking very snowy. Where is best to ski in bad light? Not a great place in bad light to be honest. The generic resort advice is to ski below the tree line. But we don't have much of that and of what we do have a lot of it is not yet open. The areas in Italy that are below the tree line are Salette down to Valtournnenche and Cielalto. But with the storm the link might not be open. In Switzerland the area below Sunnegga is lovely and is below the tree line but at present the area below Patrularve is not yet open. Riffelberg down to Furi is good and is below the tree line but is not yet open. I wonder if there is half a chance they might get that open - there is certainly more than enough snow for them to do so. Furgg down to Furi is also a good run below the snow line but that is a black and they tend not to open until Xmas week. Schwarzsee down to Furi is open and is half below the tree line - but the best part of the route is mainly above. If you like itineraries the one from Blauherd down to Findeln is open. It is not below the tree line but it is very sheltered so could be OK. The winds are coming from the North West. Most of the Swiss side faces north and west so it is hard to hide. Cervinia might be getting a bit more sheltered (it faces south west mainly) I suspect your best plan is the Rothorn mountain. Rothorn down to Gant or Blauherd will get some shelter and whatever sun there is you will get there, Blauherd down to Sunnegga could be windy but again will pick up whatever sun there is. And then Sunnegga down to Patrularve is between trees and should be fine. Thanks very much for that! The snow for Friday and Saturday looks to have subsided a little. Do you know how likely the link to Italy is to be open either Friday or Saturday with the current forecast for wind? Thanks in advance.
