Zermatt Snow Reports

Zermatt offers skiing at some of the highest altitudes in Europe. This means guaranteed snow. The vast majority of the pistes across the ski area, which covers Zermatt and Cervinia, are above 2,000m. The highest run starts at the lofty height of 3,899m.

In the run up to your Zermatt ski holiday there is no need to worry about the snow conditions. Snow cannons cover 70% of the area’s piste so you can be sure of fantastic conditions even in the unlikely case of a poor Zermatt snow forecast.

Zermatt’s main slopes open at the end of November and the snow hangs around until the end of April. Summer skiing is available in the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise area where the snow never melts. During the winter, the height of the resort means that poor weather can cause lift closures; most of the runs are above the tree line so there is little shelter.

Here there is up-to-date Zermatt snow report as well as a five day weather forecast and snow forecast.
