Suggestion for skiing during August or September please
I'm not a skier, but I understand there are only two areas in Switzerland that offer skiing in August and September: Zermatt and Saas-Fee. I saw people skiing on the glacier at Mittelallalin above Saas-Fee in mid-September last year.
You can check what's open on the following websites:
There are also some apps that provide information:

I have noticed others say that skiing at this time of year is only for experienced skiers.
Thanks---- checking for someone as my family went skiing in Zermatt in August years ago and since things change -I was wondering if still possible!
For experienced skiers it will be possible at the locations that Alpenrose mentioned. It's not easy as the snow conditions are not as good as in winter, and the air is thin because of the altitude. The mornings are the best time. I think the ski lifts in Saas-Fee are not even operating in the afternoon. The lifts for hikers and sightseers are open all day though.
