My wife, daughter and I have 2 weeks in Switzerland planned for the first 2 weeks of April. The only thing known is we fly into Geneva and out of Zurich. We have traveled Europe many times but this is the first time ski specific. We have visited the proposed resorts 23 years ago but it was in the Fall. Tentative plans have us renting a car then going to Chamonix, Zermatt, and Saas Fee.My wife and daughter will not ski the whole time, I plan to try for 10 days. We are flexible. I know in parts of the Alps it has not been a banner year while in others it has been. We have skied in the Dolomites, I know they are having a banner year but we want to go someplace new.
We are Lake Tahoe skiers with passes at Mt Rose and Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows. I'm a Spring skiing fanatic. Too me it's as good as powder so if I get 2 weeks of sunshine I will be happy.
Is the current snow pack at these resorts normal or below normal? I guessing in between based on what I'm been able to discern. Based on current snow pack and typical, if there is such a thing anymore, March weather what can we expect at these resorts during this time period.
I'm thinking Zermatt, Cervina, Saas Fee should be decent. Not so confident about Chamonix.
At Gear or Alpine?
Any comments or advice would be appreciated.
I can't believe I could log in after an 8 year absence!!
