Yes, the connection is secure. TravelersWifi is basically the same as your Wifi at home: you need a password to be able to connect to it. It is not an open/unsecured network.
As for securely connecting to websites (SSL, https): that is not related to how you connect to the internet, but it depends on the websites you visit. Most browsers show a green padlock next to the address bar if the connection to the current website is encrypted. This does not mean that the site is safe (anyone can configure encrypted connections), but it does mean that nobody can look into the data you exchange with that site. So it's about improved privacy, and about safety if it comes to entering credit card data for example. You should see this padlock for MySwissAlps as well.
