Hello there.

We started to plan our trip to Swiss alps this year in mid september. Well im wandering about weather at that time of year. Is it snowy,rainy,sunny? Any tip will do. Was reading a lots of forums and people are suggesting september as we cant go in july or august :(...Our goal is to hit these passes: Umbrail, San Bernardino, Gothard, Furka, Grimsel, Susten.

Greetings from Pula, Croatia

Hi KlimaUredzaj and welcome to MySwissAlps!

It is quite hard to say with any certainty what weather you will get in September. The weather changes dramatically from the valleys to the mountain passes all year-round. I would say, normally, it is quite nice, especially in early September.

It is a good month for the mountain passes though in general - You shouldn't have to deal with snow issues etc. You can keep an eye on the mountain passes here: https://www.alpen-paesse.ch/en/

You can read more about the weather in Switzerland here.

Hi Arnabghosh,

I have replied to your original post. Please don't post your itinerary on someone else's thread (especially when it isn't the same topic). Thanks!
