We have fresh snow!! The skiing conditions this week are second to none, there is some fresh powder to keep the powder hounds happy and the conditions on piste are fabulous, the snow that fell earlier in the week has just added to the great on piste skiing conditions. The snow up high on the glacier is great and due to the cold temperatures its holding well, the sun has also been shining for the past couple of days so the skiing is most enjoyable.

There is snow forecast for Saturday night and all day on Sunday and then the rest of the week is set to be clear with a few clouds doted around. Temperatures are sitting at around -8 and -11 keeping the snow in great condition.

There is full moon skiing going on this evening. This is the opportunity to take the last lift up to the Trocknersteg restaurant, where you will enjoy an Asian inspired meal and then once the sun has fully set and the moon has come out you ski down to Zermatt accompanied by some of the  mountain rescue team in the light of the full moon.
