Hi all

We will be visiting Switzerland in last week of August and planned to visit Jungfraujoch on August 25th or 26th and Matterhorn mountain on August 28th. My question is due to recent heatwave across Europe is there much snow left on these two mountains? From live webcams I can see there is snow, but not as thick as it used to be.

I hope weather will cool down in next 10 days and it may snow on top of mountains.

Do you suggest it's still worth to visit them at present conditions.

Thanks

Global warming means less snow on the mountian tops. IN normal conditions, the snow will be at its thinnest in August, but if it cools suddenly at high altitude some snow might fall, but don't imagine it will be like a winter 'snowscape'

Hi familyman,

Indeed there is snow on Jungfraujoch and Matterhorn Glacier Paradise all year round. But it won't be as fresh or thick as what you would experiencein winter time.

Regards,

Anna
