Ski Conditions Dec 14th - 21st

We are landing in Switzerland on the 14th of December. Will be looking to go skiing for this week in St Moritz.

I've always been there around February and that's been fantastic weather for skiing. Anyone have experience of skiing mid December here?

1. Re: Ski Conditions Dec 14th - 21st

Perhaps someone will give you 'on the spot advice' but the situation this year is that it has snowed early, and remained quite cold. However, this week is set fair without more snow and with temperatures rising slightly. So although the early skiing has been good, by next weekend lower/middle resorts (of which St Moritz is one) might really some more snow.

But predicting next weekend, let alone beyond, is tricky. At some point, the weather will break and the normal December storms will return. The main difference between December and February is that the sun is lower, so it feels colder and days are shorter.

At the moment we are in a large high - no fresh (natural) snow in sight so far. But then weather in the mountains is difficult to predict. We had very very low temperatures for the season - the smaller lakes are already frozen and the St. Moritz lake is nearly icecovered all over as well - and not that much snow. But it is white and the runs are prepared perfectly. It was cold enough to produce snow and the ones open are in very good quality There was a good start into season and this weekend with the Milan holiday Sant'Ambrogio a lot of people on the pists with beautiful sunshine from sunrise to sunset. Days however are short this time of year of course and temperatures mostly lower than what you may be used in February.

Enjoy your time here, it is always a nice period, not that many people as during the peak season in February or the holiday season, but a lot of sunshine and more season openings daily.

There will be a FIS Womens World Cup next weekend and we hope the weather holds.
