Let it Snow—Outdoor Winter Fun

With winter finally making a comeback after the unseasonably warm beginning of the year, Switzerland is once again becoming a giant outdoor playground, and when there is snow on the ground, the possibilities are limitless! January and February are the best months for winter sports, because the snow cover can even reach down in the valleys.

Starting in March and April, you may have to go higher to find good snow coverage.
