Skiing at the Matterhorn in Early June  (1 Answer)

My daughter and I are driving from Rome up to the Alps. We are interested in skiing at the Matterhorn. However, we don't want to pack ski clothes. Will we need parkas at that time of year? I know we can rent equipment. Any advice as to where, how much, etc? Anyone who has done this, please share your experience. Also, any advice as to where to stay? We will only be there one night. Thank you.

Driving through the Alps in April  (2 Answers)

Hi folks

My girlfriend and I are planning a very long trip around Central and Northern Europe in our campervan. We have done alot of research, but the Alps is something we need a little help with. What are the driving and weather conditions like during April? We plan to travel from place to place in the camper, stopping to do outdoor activities like hiking. We don't mind it being cold, but I'd rather the roads weren't either closed or dangerous whilst in an old VW!

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Help on swiss passes  (7 Answers)

Hello, We are driving over to Switzerland this July and using Interlaken as our base for 9 days, during this we have booked one night in Zermatt. We intend on using swiss transport whilst there, but are totally confused at which pass to buy. There's the swiss youth pass (we're 23) but then there are also the 'Jungfrau Region 6 Day Pass' and 'The Adventure Card Upper Valais - Uri - Grisons pass'.
Basically, we want the pass (or passes) that give us the cheapest travel for traveling:
from Interlaken to Zermatt,
Harder Kulm,
Schynige Platte,
Jungfraujoch (Top),
and Grindelwald.
But we are then driving over to Davos for 3 days and will be using swiss transport there too.
I cant seem to find anything about what discounts or free usage you can get on any cable cars etc (as we'll be using them a lot)
Can anyone help?
Many thanks!
