engadin valley?

we will be travelling to switzerland next week and thinking of travelling the endagin valley area. as we are planning on some ski days (3-4) in the area would this be possible, or will there not be enough snow?

wengen might also be a possibility for skiing. we are not too pushed where but would like to find some place that would be good for beginners as we would just like to try it out.

Back to the engadin valley, what are the unmissable places to stay? i have read about appenzell. It sounds nice but would it be high enough?

we really want snow!

There is still a decent ammount of snow in the region and most tracks are opened in the Engadin region according to the Swiss ski bullettin taken from the Swi teletext. Savognin and Laax have lot of tracks closed, but the rest seems totally ok.

Have a look at Scuol in the Engadin. The skiing at Motta Naluns is high altitude and perfect for beginners. Another excellent choice would be Arosa - not quite in the Engadin valley, but attractive, good for beginners, and snow-sure.

hey roh, engadin valley (unter engadin) is in kanton Graubünden, Appenzell in Kanton Appenzell und Wengen (Berner Oberland)in Kanton Bern.

so you have to decide in which one of these you really want to go, the distances between them are quite long.

switzerland IS small but no that small :-)

I prefer Engadin. But if you want the real alpine experience then it is wengen and the BO.

I do not think you will find lots of snow in Appenzell.

here is a link to snow forecasting:
