    If the snow is bad down low, remember that Glacier 3000 is just around the corner. I think the lift passes for Gstaad cover the glacier, but you'll have to do a short bus ride to get there.

    I've skied that glacier while staying in Les Diablerets. It's usually got good snow and very few people on it.

    Thanks for the details. Sounds like 45 lifts are open, so, should be OK. Nevertheless, I will try to get to the top.

    Stopped by Cataloochee in western NC for a few jumps on the way home. Only 3 runs open. 50°. The ski industry in the Southeast has been demolished this year by warm weather

    How was the snow at lower elevations? Did you get any good skiing in Gstaad itself?

    Gstaad was hot, literally. It was in the mid/upper 50s (12-15C) and no snow in the city (the surrounding hills with no slopes had no snow). The lower elevations had snow on the slopes and first day we spent there totally soaked because it was pouring rain below 1600m that turned into mix/snow above. So, take the gondola up to the top (2000m) and it is snowing, a third of the way down turns into rain. Never been that soaked on the mountain.
    Second day, it cleared up and we decided to go to G3000 and it was absolutely awesome.
