I have couple of questions -

1. What kind of weather we can expect in late September for us to bring a suitable clothing.

2. When we go up the mountain 3000 for activities such as snow boarding, are there any snow gears provided up there, what would be the cost ? Which other mountains would you suggest for activities with teenagers.

3. What extra clothing would you recommend when we go up the mountains such as Jungfrau in late September ?

Hi Pape,

  1. Where in Switzerland? In towns at lower elevations it can be quite pleasant but in the mountains you can get quite cold with some snow starting to come down by late September (and is there year-round in Jungfraujoch.
  2. Do you mean the Glacier 3000? Have a look at their website for details on what to do there and what is available for rent (gear, and prices). What activities are your teenagers interested in? Have a look at our what to do web page for some ideas to show them.
  3. A good heavy coat and be sure to dress in layers as the temperature changes from the valley to the top of the mountains can be quite drastic. I doubt you will need gloves, but you could. A warm hat as well as good boots if you are planning to do any hiking.
