Switzerland Ski Resorts Snow Levels & Skiing Conditions Reports. Swiss Glacier Resorts and Ski Season 2015 - 2016 Holidays.

 

(last updated 27 January 2015)

Most of our featured winter resorts in Switzerland offer very good snow sports following snow showers of 15 - 35 cm during the last weekend and also yesterday at some places. The precipitations however had the accopaniment of some decent winds, which reduced the lift operations, particularly at the highest glacial destinations such as Zermatt and Saas Fee, but those have subsided by now. Other, lower ski villages enjoyed bright and sunny weekend, welcoming their visitors on pistes with perfect visibility. All Samnaun (44 - 116 cm), Zermatt (21 - 198 cm) at Klein Matterhorn, Saas-Fee (45 - 243 cm), Gstaad / Les Diablerets (26 - 175 cm), Davos / Klosters (37 - 132 cm), St Moritz (39 - 149 cm; all lifts open!) Les Mosses (18 - 43 cm), Nendaz (9 - 170 cm) and Verbier (19 - 110 cm) are open and one will find fantastic skiing conditions. The lift links from Samnaun to Ischgl are running, as are those between Zermatt and Cervinia. Zermatt has aproximately 250 kilometers of pistes, including the links to Italy and offers the largest open terrain in the country at the moment on fresh base as they gained around twenty centimeters of new snow this week, so great fun is available despite the windy weather.
All of our featured ski destinatins are now fully open and great skiing and snowboarding is being offered at Andermatt, Crans Montana (23 - 51 cm), Engelberg (31 - 2 96cm), Flims / Laax (21 - 140 cm), Wengen (19 - 100 cm), Grimentz / Zinal (15 - 70 cm), Murren (46 - 120 cm) Adelboden, Pontresina (59 - 120 cm) Lenk, Grindelwald (10 - 119 cm) and Lenzerheide / Arosa (49 - 78 cm; 42 lifts running).
Some lower destinations such as Leysin (19 - 38 cm), Champery (51 cm) and Villars (39 - 80 cm) experienced a few rainy days last week and the snow base is a bit heavy, but still decent skiing is available on their upper pistes thanks to the artificial snow making.
The skies are predicted to stay cloudy and the temperatures will further drop with few degrees by tomorrow, followed by significant snowfalls of up to half meter at places such as the Jungfrau area after Thursday. Then lighter, but still snowy weather is predicted for the weekend.

On the day of the procession, a woman is picked up by each of the riders, and clings tightly to him in order not to fall off the sleigh.
The Schlitteda is an old tradition in the region, still taken seriously by the locals of the Engadine and is held in some other villages in the area as well. The horses and sleighs are beautifully adorned and the event is a great chance to see the traditional costumes and uniforms of the area.

Prix de Lausanne 2015

(1 - 8 February 2015, Palais de Beaulieu, Switzerland)

Prix de Lausanne is a famous competition for dancers between 15 and 18 years old. It is carried out at the Palais de Beaulieu where the dancers pass through a week of tests and perform a classical, a contemporary and a free variation (the latter made especially for them). The contest begins as a dance class, closed for audience, and during that stage many contestants drop out. Audience is permitted only on the semi-finals and the finals and every ballet fan buys a ticket in order to see famous performers among the spectators, in addition to the performances of the young ones.
The last Saturday of the contest is in fact the semi-final which takes place the whole afternoon. Clapping is strictly forbidden but the murmurs after every performance are a sign for its success.
On the finals large bursaries are awarded as well as the gold medal, given to really talented contestants. Testuya Kumakawa and Carlos Acosta are among the winners of the competition and later they performed in the Royal Ballet.
