Best Time to Visit Switzerland
An all-round destination, Switzerland offers so much in summer and winter. Warm summer days and cooler evenings means that temperatures in the Alp villages in summer are very pleasant. Invariably the weather in the mountains can often change quickly so it's always worth being prepared.
The winter offers excellent conditions throughout a long season. Skiing is well under way by early December and even late November due to high altitude glacial terrain around 4000m. As the season progresses, lower runs offer great conditions too and the skiing below 2000m is appealing when it gets really cold. By April when other resorts can be knee deep in slush, Zermatt will have the best conditions in the Alps.
