Heavy snowfall in Switzerland

More than 2 feet of snow. Train service cancelled.

28 Oct 2018 – Many places in Switzerland woke up to snow on Sunday – with 28 inches (71 cm) in the resort of Arosa.

In the eastern Alps it snowed to quite low altitudes, the Swiss weather service MeteoSwiss told Keystone-SDA.

Parts of the eastern canton of Graubünden saw 30-70-cm of snow at over 1,200 metres above sea level.


Snow causes chaos for trains

“The snow is heavy like concrete. We can not go to the house anymore – but we have enough to eat, “writes one reader…. The onset of winter also causes chaos on the rails. Between Chur and Thusis the trains are canceled. And also the Albula line from Thusis to St. Moritz is interrupted. There are no train replacement buses on this route.

The route between St. Moritz and Scuol is also interrupted. The Bernina Express trains are also canceled due to the many snowfalls.
