Hi Arno and Anita,

Hope both of you are doing well.

I plan to visit BO in end of June, wonder if there is still snow in Birg and Schilthorn. Hope you can give us guidance.

Thanks,

Lucas

Hi Marvin,

Yes, I would anticipate snow being still there at the top in June. I'm not sure about Birg but there are webcams for Schilthorn you can check out before you go.

Hi Lucas,

Thanks for the information and your prompt responds. Regarding the snow, would the Schilthorn peak still fully covered by the snow or it just in some part of the peak which is not accessible without any appropriate equipment?

Thanks,

Lucas

Yes, just parts of the area may be inaccessible due to snow (or not fun) without proper boots etc. You can still enjoy the peak and I would go up unless there is heavy clouds obscuring your views.

The webcam yesterday looked horrible, but right it looks awesome!

Thanks Lucas, really appreciate your prompt responds.. Yeah, saw it yesterday, it was horrible!

So I could expect that there is still large volume of snows on top of the peak even at the end of June, right?

Yup, I don't know about large volumes of snow though that you have to trudge through...but it'll be around. :)

You are at about 10,000 feet up top so the weather is unpredictable and often cold year-round.
Hopefully you luck out and get sunny and warm temperatures!
