Dear All

I am new to this Forum and I am posting for the first time. I will be travelling with wife to Switzerland from May 29th until June 2nd. I am coming from a Desert Country and hence I would like to see snow and snow capped mountains. Since I don't have the luxury of time, I will be visiting any one, ie Schilthron or Jungfraujoch. What will be the level of snow in Schilthron during end of May ? As I already took STP, Schilthron will be free and for Jungfraujoch i have to pay. If Schilthron also have a good amount of snow, then I will go for it.

Any suggestions

Thanks in advance

Hi Perry and welcome to MySwissAlps!

If you are looking to see some snow and enjoy looking at snow-capped mountain peaks than Schilthorn is a great option (and free).
If you are looking to walk in and perhaps "play in some snow" then you'll want to go to Jungfraujoch.
