Zermatt (and Cervinia) 2018/19

 Poster: A snowHead

I second the recommendation for Gandegghutte - although the food has got slightly 50/50 reviews in recent years the views are pretty special.

If you aren't set on being up top and are happy to walk to other mountain restaurants then it would be a no-brainer to look into places like Zum See, Findlerhof, Alphitta, Paradies etc - all fantastic food and well-trodden.

Some great webcam pictures as the skies gradually begin to clear. That was certainly a big snowfall for October. The Furggsattel lift was going to open today for the first time in 2018/19 season (that is the one on the right in the photo) but the high winds mean the chairs are all back in the lift station.

Fantastic to see - the Glacier is looking in good nick now. Wonder if they have had enough to get the Trockner to Furgg runs open early or will they stick to the 24th?

I am pretty sure they could open those runs. They have snowmaking all they way down. Furgg is at 2400m and deep in a north facing valley so the snow is there to stay. Be nice to see them at least open it for the next couple of weekends but nothing seems to have been said so far. Always a bit tricky when the extra workforce is no lined up until the 24th.

Well this morning not only was the Furggsattel chairlift up the lower glacier planned to be open but it is actually open. Hooray (ish)! Not sure I would want to be up there. Still lots of cloud (plus continuing top up of snow) and strong winds. While you can only see a couple of hundred metres, I can't see anyone coming down the piste or sitting on any of the moving chairs. Still 4 weeks until my first trip out this winter so very selfishly I am happy for it to continue like this.

Slightly nerve-wracking to see the snow line predicated to move up to 3200m by next weekend....hope this isn't the case. Great to see a continuous level of snowfall (however small) coming over the weekend and next week.

Looking at the GFS runs in the photo it looks warm next week but I would be surprised if the snow line was as high as that. Except for the current snowfall which Meteo Swiss’s radar projections seem to think will continue on and off through Saturday, any more snow looks more likely later in the week when the temperatures look like they could be failing again (usual caveats about approaching FI by then).

Trockner webcam showing sunshine and fantastic conditions on the glacier. Furggsattel lift working away and great to see skiers enjoying the snow - envious now.

Klein Matterhorn glacier still closed, Italian side opens tomorrow. The conditions will be fantastic, plenty of locals were already touring up from Plan Maison to Theodul today. 6 and 8 will be open tomorrow.

Cervinia already has the pistes above Plan Maison open. From tomorrow they are opening the top section of the Ventina down from Testa Grigia. Most of the snow (and it is still coming) has been coning from the south so the Italian side has been getting the best of it.

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

Snow park on the Furgg glacier opens tomorrow for those who like that sort of thing. I must admit I prefer to keep my skis either in contact with the snow or at least reasonably close to it.

@JohnMo, seems like you know Zermatt really well! I lived there and worked at Slalom Sport in the mid 80's/early 90's! Say hi to Sparky for me, and Mark, Andreas and Glenn at the Bubble, also Brian Farquharson if you bump into him!
Oh, shouldn't forget my daughter Hannah, baby Luca and her partner Josh who'll be working in Andreas's new restaurant Very Happy

Sounds like a restaurant recommendation for our boy trip in January @KenX, Laughing

@coddlesangers, that’s a real pity. Looks like they have managed to keep it open today but the winds are still really strong up top.

@KenX, some great bars there. The fact that Zermatt is so lively is what lead to us get a place there (strictly - in Täsch, just down the valley) five years ago. At the time my adult children and I enjoyed Lech and Zermatt equally from a skiing point of view. However my non-skiing wife preferred Zermatt.

Arriving this Thursday 15th and keen to know which restaurants in Zermatt town are open this week and next weekend. We usually come for a 2-3 night stay around this time of year-so know the options are limited-One night at the Schaefersube is always on the agenda-yum! (am aware it's currently housed elsewhere while a refurb is going on). Usually end up having a pizza or pasta at the Hotel Post too, but open to alternatives. Had been thinking of a burger and the Bubble on Thursday night, but I see from the above that it's now Brasserie Uno. Is it open?

Pretty much all the restaurants away from the Bahnhofstrasse are closed until the main resort opening on 24th. However most of the restaurants on the Bahnhofstrasse from the train station to past the church are open.

Looking very dry for the week ahead. The temperatures are coming down though so the cannons will be working and they are pumping out onto a good base. Got to hope some of that uncertainty a week away (usual caveats about that far out) turns into white stuff from the sky.
