We are a group of 5 going to Zermatt this month and would like some advise from anyone been there recently , read about avalanches - is it affecting the Zermatt area ? Also for an intermediate skier who is comfortable with blues and single blacks in Vt which side is it better to stay on in Zermatt ? Any opinions welcomed. Thanks

Hi, Zermatt's escaping the worst of the current storm (so far), but is still likely to see anything up to half a metre of new snow over the next few days - wind is also an issue.

The avalanche risk, and any associated piste (or road) closures, is very fluid and will change from day-to-day. Roads, of course, tend to be made safe as quickly as can be managed.

When are you going to be in Zermatt?

I am out of the region at the moment, so I can't give you any first-hand information. Zermatt seems to have received 50-100 cm of snow over the weekend, the avalanche danger at the moment is currently at 4 and the road from Tasch to Zermat is closed (it isn't open to the general public so this doesn't affect journeys to and from Zematt), the trains seem to be operating normally.

Some of the easiest skiing is in the Gonergrat sector, depending on which is closer to your accommodation take the train or gondola up to Riffelberg and then the Gifthittli chair lift.

Staying on piste generally insures safety from slides. The vast majority of marked trails are intermediate. Be sure to ski down to Cervinia one day for lunch.
