Ski'ing this weekend April 13 or 14

I'm interested in doing some LATE winter (early spring - almost summer) skiing.

Can anyone recommend a good (not super far from Zurich) location.
1st time skiing in Switzerland (Ski'd many other places - years ago).

Since the weather keeps showing snow (every couple of day's) I figure this might be the best / most cheapest time to go.

Thanks

You can try Laax. We have been there last weekend. Some of the ski lifts have been closed since April 8, but most of them are still open. The snow in the lower part is not great, wery wet and heavy, but in the upper part it's still very good, especially after it's snowing at night.

Still plenty of decent skiing around here with snow and freezing temperatures for the weekend. Although I realise we're nowhere near Zurich, but we can also offer accommodation at very reasonable rates for the rest of the season, i.e. until after the Easter weekend.

Re: Ski'ing this weekend April 13 or 14

We went skiing last weekend in Saas-Grund, and it was glorious! Sunny weather, fresh powder, empty slopes. This weekend probably Saas-Fee is open too. And it's not too bad of a trip from Zurich (take the direct connection to Visp, then follow the crowd and board the Post-bus right outside the station that takes you to Saas-Grund/Fee). If you rent skis, there's plenty of places to rent excellent material at competitive prices (which you can give back at 6pm on Sunday!)

I would head for Engleburg or Andermatt this time of the year from Zurich. I have skied Flaine, Verbier & Chamonix over the last week. From Amazing powder 6 days ago after nearly 1 meter of fresh snow. 3 days later full on spring skiing. There is a reasonable amount of snow forecast for Saturday night & the freezing level will drop to 1000m
