Overview 

~Until mid-March 100% of terrain should be open, including all runs to the village (at 1620m altitude). Effectively still like mid-winter in terms of snow coverage. ~Second half of March Expect good skiable snow above 1800m. This means 95% of Zermatt's skiable area is open and fantastic! Powder snow can last on the northerly slopes. Skiing to the village is still possible thanks to snowmaking. ~First half of April Expect good skiable snow above 2000m generally, which is 85% of Zermatt's area. Powder snow normally softens within a day when it falls. The final kilometre descent to the village from the Sunnegga area (below Patrullarve) will normally be closing due to lack of snow. Skiing to Furi (1850m) and from there to Zermatt should still be possible due to snowmaking and its northerly orientation. ~ mid-April to early May Expect good skiable conditions above 2200m. This translates to about 70% of Zermatt's skiable area. Powder snow falls tend to soften within hours, but the spring snow is fantastic and one gets a great tan. Slopes are completely uncrowded. Skies are deep blue. A visit is still very worthwhile! The final kilometre descent to the village from Furi will normally be closed due to lack of snow. But at this time of year the run from the top to bottom (Klein Matterhorn to Furi) is still 11km (7 ml)! Top to bottom skiing is still available in Cervinia - for an 11km run. From early May The winter season officially ends in Zermatt. The month of May brings rain and warm winds to the altitudes of 2000-3000m. One has to ascend above 3000m on to the glaciers for good snow. May is a prime month for ski-tourers. But the lower two of Zermatt's three skiing areas close. The large glacier ski area - Klein Matterhorn - remains open year round.
